Hi all,
 
Well the depression and anxiety-panic boards both have their own "Happy Threads" -- started by Ophelia, for which a big "thank you". This idea has already helped so many and these other Happies are thriving, so I thought, hey, let's give it a go here!
 
Sometimes we need to remind ourselves of the good things, and feel others' joy at the happiness in their own lives. -- This is a place we can all come to do this. Whether you're posting a list of the things that give you happiness, or are sharing a joke or poem, everyone is welcome here.
 
So, let me start the ball rolling...
 
I am happy that we have such a great lil' community here.
I am happy that new members are joining and bringing their uniqueness and insight to us.
I am happy that I get to mod with the fantastic Ellie.
I am happy thatI had a good night's sleep last night -- no butterflies or spider dreams (I'm arachnophobic!).
I am happy that I had a lovely evening round at my friends' house on Saturday -- lovely food and very relaxing.
I am happy that I don't have my usual "Monday Morning" feeling today (!).
I am happy that I went ahead and made this thread ... happy that bp has a "Happy Thread"!!!

what a great idea!  when our grandkids were little and stayed with us, over supper we would have them say the best thing that happed to them that day.  not bad for adults, either.  especially for those of us who have a lot of negativity in thier lives.
 
for me:
 
our daughter, grandkids and greatgrandkids.
 
also, when you reach my age, you are thankful for being vertical rather than horizontal!
 
i am grateful for finding healingwell and for the forums that have helped me so much during this part of my journey.
 
and thanks ever so much for the great, compassionate people who i have met here.

Actually, I was just thinking about that on my way home from work.  I was griping to myself about my supervisor, all the politics involved, etc., etc., and so forth... When I thought..."You dumbass, you should just feel lucky to have a job."
Sooo....I am thankful for...
...my job
...my supportive husband
...my kids
...my wonderful grandson
...for my BP illness diagnosis which validated me in ways only you guys can understand
...for my friends in this forum who have made me feel welcome.
 
A big THANK YOU to each and everyone tongue ..Luv...Lazy

I am happy that Ellie's feeling a little better. -- Take any time you need for yourself, Ellie -- happy to be *able* to help. :-)
I am happy that Warren has his family (and what a lot of family) around him to give him joy -- and happy that he's vertical too! tongue
I am happy that Lazy has joined this thread, and that she also has so much loving family around and feels validated -- you are hun!! scool (And wow, what a great coincidence!)
I am happy that this thread has struck a chord with you folks and that the happy thoughts I've just read have made me smile at the end of a slightly grouchy and brittle day (no big shakes, but anoying!)
I am happy that I will be going to bed soon! smurf

Happy to see my lovely Lyn over here!! Thank you for popping by to add to the happies! xx

Happy that I had a good night out with friends last night and met a new one who I got on with really well (which is big for me cos meeting new people can make me pretty anxious!).

Happy that an old school friend contacted me yesterday and made me feel a *lot* better about how I was in my teen years!! (I'd kind of written them off -- but then found that I was apparently ok enough to be contacted out of the blue on the basis that I was "one of the interesting people" -- in a positive way apparently -- the word "interesting" was a bit of a running joke at school!)

Happy to see people here finding good pdocs and giving everyone hope -- yes, they *do* exist!! :)

I am happy to see a thread like this.
I am happy to see that these boards are always full of people ready to give advice and help and hugs, even though they're suffering just like me!
I am happy that people here really do understand what I'm going through.
I am happy that my boyfriend does love me, despite all the crap I've given him over the past 5 years.
I am happy that I am going to be starting University in 3 weeks!
I am happy that I will start rowing at University, and will hopefully lose weight, and regulate my moods more with active exercise.
I am happy that the Bengals (NFL team) are looking really good this year, so I won't get laughed at for supporting such a bad team :-)

I am happy that we can all say we're happy about things. Things might feel horrible, but there's always SOMETHING to be happy about!

Heh Warren!
I started supporting the Bengals a few years ago, and then we went 2-14.
I've had so much stick for it!
But now, now I shall laugh at everyone else in my group! We have a 49ers fan HAHA, a Pack fan HAHA, my boyfriend's a Dolphins fan HAHA!
So I'm getting my own back now :-)

My boyfriend took up the Dolphins after we'd been together for a while, so it was too late :-)

And Man U... ewwwww
I don't really watch football anymore though (English not NFL), it's just rubbish the way it's gone. Too much money, no chance for the smaller teams, terrible refereeing, no real football, just pass back, back, back, back, let your goalie boot it up field.
It's so boring now.

Ooh -- challenge accepted Lovely Lyn!!! ;)

Happy this thread allows us to prioritise the happy even when life gets stressful.

Happy to welcome Cap to "our club"!! :)

Happy for new members bringing their warmth and kindness here -- again, even in their own times of trouble.

Happy Warren keeps telling it like it is -- always makes me smile (in a good way -- we need this).

Happy Warren and Djonma can now fight it out sports-wise. Warren -- Man U?? Mind you, who am I to speak? -- I support Michael Schumacher in Formula 1! (He's retiring at the end of the season -- boo hoo -- end of an era -- who will I support now...?????? argh)

Happy Lyn is here helping out because she's just like that -- a gem.

Veryt sad to lose Ellie -- but happy to support her in whatever she needs still -- and happy that she's taken a step that will make her feel better. Happy that there are people like Ellie in this world.

Happy that Lyn got this thread moving up the food chain again -- a few days of "not so happy", but I know we can do it!!!

Happy to see yet more great members joining us!

Happy Djonma's having some good luck with docs finally. (Hey matey, you'll have to change that signature line of yours if things carry on this well!)

Happy I'll be catching Lyn on msn later and that I finally feel like I'm creeping back to life. (Yeah, watch out guys ... tee hee)

it's been a few days without happy thoughts.  can't have that.  at my age (and norm's if he's listening :-) ) a few days mean a lot!
 
i'm happy to be vertical rather than horizontal!
 
many yrs ago, a friend told me that one day a good bowel movement would be better than sex.  i was young and told my friend that that was IMPOSSIBLE.  he said that i were lost in the desert without water for 3 days and found bo derrik panting for me and a bottle of water, which would i take first.  i said, the water, of course.  he said, point made.  this am i had a good bm.
 
let's revive this thread.
