Can we have a "Why I'm Great" Thread?
Advertisements [?]
I know that a lot of us are struggling with depression and other disorders. Sometimes it helps me to see how far I have come, and to see the accomplishments of others who are going through the same thing. I think a thread where we just pat ourselves on the back is a good idea, that way when we are really down we can come back to it and see the good we have done.

Anyone would be able to post anything. For example, about 4 years ago a huge thing for me was getting out of bed. This was in the deepest depression. Getting out of bed when you fight anxiety going out your bedroom door and fighting depression is huge deal sometimes.

Now, I have been able to keep a job for a year next month, and now I am struggling with having hope for a future. I'm dying with debt from college loans and trying to keep my credit card from going out of control. I just don't see how I can have a good future with this. But when I look back on how far I have come, it helps (sometimes, this is not a panacea).

So, I've shared a bit about myself. What have you done that you are proud of, be it today or overall?
