I'll get us started:
Yesterday after a migraine I was feeling pretty sick and decided not to go to any house inspections myself, but I wrote a schedule for my future housemate and he inspected three houses. I'm proud of myself for getting important, time-sensitive work done even though I wasn't feeling well, and I'm also proud of myself for setting limits based on my needs and sticking to them, including asking other people to help me.
I've been working on my internalized ableism and while sometimes it can get hard, I'm proud of myself for not hiding (most of) my symptoms to my friends anymore. I used to keep quiet and conceal everything when I wasn't feeling good but I don't do that as much anymore. Sometimes it's a struggle to let my friends know, honestly, that I'm not okay, but I'm not going to apologize for being mentally-ill anymore.
I'm proud of myself because I got an interview date from one of the colleges I applied to (!!!!!already!!!!) and while tidying my room I found the exam results I was stressing over not being able to find bc I need them for the interview
