I am grateful for

I am grateful for:

My bed, it’s a Beautyrest, the one with the pocketed coils, I got it with my lump sum payment from disability a few years back and it was a great investment. Having a comfy bed that supports your back is so important.

My family, without them I would have no reason to fight to get better. I live each and everyday just to spend time with my loved ones and to make their world a better place. It’s my purpose.

My doctors, I feel cared for and listened to. In the past I’ve had doctors that have just made things worse and I feel right now I’m receiving the best care possible. I don’t hide symptoms anymore and I don’t fear that I will be hospitalized if I’m honest about what I’m going through. I trust them.

The forum, I have a place where I’m not the weird one. I feel like I have friends and people who understand me. I love being able to help other people and love that there is always someone here to listen when I need to talk.

I hope today you have plenty to be grateful for. Won’t you join me in sharing your blessings?


You, because you make positive posts.

My husband. today is our 15th wedding anniversary, 16th together. I don’t know what I would do without him. He has Bipolar 2 and we complement each other very well.

My cats. One (Shmookitty) is in heaven and two are here with me now.

My pdoc. I have had some bad pdocs in my life. I’ve had my current one for 3 1/2 years and I hope I never lose her.


My physical health…
Mormon God
Candy i have in the house
Tobacco cigs


I am grateful for receiving disability payments. Because without it I would be homeless.


Physical health. I used to have this delusional fear that my heart was always on the verge of giving out, but it turns out that was just anxiety talking and my heart and other organs are perfectly fine. I had to find out the hard way via a mental hospital stay but oh well. :stuck_out_tongue:

Accepting friends and family. They’re able to see past my illness to who I truly am. I couldn’t ask for better people in my life.

Medications. I’d be a complete wreck without them. I can’t imagine how people coped before meds were a thing.

Pets. I have two dachshunds, several cats, a tarantula, and a betta fish. They all bring me so much joy. :heart:

This forum. It’s nice to come to a place where I don’t so alone in what I’m going through.


A bed that is clean and stable
A roof
Good weather


my glorious hair


Meditation. So glad someone invented it.

Medication. It rhymes with meditation. So that’s good.

My girlfriend.



My support system.


Friends and family. Medication that helps. A great treatment team…ie a great psydoc!

Wow you are lucky to have so much to be thankful for


i am grateful to finally realize that things aren’t as bad as they often seem, to face my paranoia square on.

i am also grateful that i am not homeless.

i am grateful for the normalcy that is developing in my life; i.e. my job, my health, my family life.

Time + space for quietness.


I’m grateful I’m clean and sober. If I had not gotten clean 28 years ago from smoking crack the chances are good that by now I’d either be in jail, or dead, or in some hospital permanently. I’m grateful that AA, CA, and NA worked for me.


My recovery. My supportive church. My neighbor. My dog (who is mellowing out finally).

I’m grateful for my home, my family, my friends, my pets… meds, doctors, health, recovery… my creative drive, my ability to type this. Grateful for art and culture and education and community, and always grateful for little things, because finding small joys in the world makes life better! :two_hearts:
