Many Thanks On This Thanksgiving Day

Hello fellow adventurers,

Happy Thanksgiving, I hope that you are all surrounded by family or at least good friends.

Since last Thanksgiving, I lot in my life has changed for better and worse. I’m very grateful to be alive and well, and home with my parents. As I sit in front of the T.V. watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and preparing to eat lots of food I’m reminded of what I have to be thankful for this year. Here it goes:

I’m thankful for…

My Family. They are so supportive of me and each other. My sisters are scattered this holiday season. I hope that in their respective places they’re happy and surrounded by people who care about them.

My Counselor. She makes being at school, having to be sociable, and other hard situations that much easier. I’m so grateful that I found help at school from someone so caring. Thank you for putting up with the cancelled appointments, the rescheduling, and the appointments that go longer than they’re supposed to. Thank you for sitting through the silences where I try to gather my thoughts about things that are hard to talk about. Your presence in my life is invaluable.

My Friends. I think I’ve finally found a group of friends that are a positive presence in my life. Thank you for being there for me and creating an environment where I feel like I can be myself. This is going to sound weird but thank you for not expecting a lot out of me, socially speaking.

My Readers. Thank you to everyone who consistently reads my blog. It makes me so happy to know that my words have some effect on people in this world.

Anxiety Medicine. The first one that isn’t human! It might seem weird to “thank” medicine but I’m thankful that I have access to it at this point in my life. It’s not easy to handle anxiety with or without it but it’s a resource that’s kept me alive and out of harms way.

What are you thankful for?

Until next time.

~K.D.
