Thanks, mellow and deerock for your responses. You both make good points, and made me realize I wasn't entirely clear. My family will be leaving right after the defense, so no time for a family dinner. It will be nice to celebrate with my husband this weekend (I will keep telling myself this), though we've long been at odds (like for years, but that's another story). I do wish that I could celebrate with some of my friends, but I don't really have anyone to ask right now. It's not the end of the world - my close friends just don't live nearby.

You're right, mellow, that my issues regarding seeing myself as a worthwhile person are probably standing out pretty strongly right now. There's something related to graduating soon that is causing my inner critic to come out in full regalia (pun halfway intended) to let me know that I'm basically a poser for thinking I could finish this degree and really mean something, or do something meaningful, or any of the above.

Thanks so much for your encouragement - it's really appreciated.
