This article on how to set boundaries at work by going on a 'mind strike' is interesting. Sometimes I want to go on a 'mental health recovery strike' by asking myself what are the pressures on my life (such as the assessment I just had for personal independence payment) that make me feel I have to try so hard to 'get over my problems', often at the expense of my own emotional integrity, and how I might be able to resist those pressures.



It's not that I don't want to get to somewhere better in my life, but sometimes I need to know that its okay not to be okay, and to be able to just rest and take care of myself without feeling under pressure to make myself into someone who can survive in the world of work, and also that the process of recovery is something that I can engage in at least to some extent on my own terms when I am able to do so.
