: I am deluded into believing that I am the source for the phrase "reality check". Please where can I go to find when it was, at least, first published? Is there any consensus among the experts as to the origin of the phrase?

The American Handbook of Social Psychology printed the term 'reality check' in 1935. I guess that you can make use of it now.
