This. This is one of the things that eventually sent me for the Psych Consult. My logical brain realized there wasn't anything really wrong with my life except my perception/reactions to it. What was going on in my mind didn't line up with my life at all.

Anyway back to this list (a very nice idea)

Things I'm thankful for:

A warm, cozy house in this cold winter.

A spouse that loves and supports me.

My critters that love me unconditionally.

My physical health is good for the most part.

That my perceptions are doing a much better job of lining up with the reality of my life
