Johannes Ask Me Anything

Yes, I think that is quite a good summary. It's especially hard to do that when you depend a lot on the job too, something that I luckily have not had a huge issue with, but I'm sure a whole lot of people do!
If you have a possible fallback plan, it's easier to make demands! :)

I'm lucky to have a great supportive family, people who have had similar issues and people who I know love me. Without that, I'm not sure what I would have been now.

I think that having people who support you - and a social network outside of work - might be one of the most important things when it comes to mental health issues, something that I dread that there are a lot of people who do not have.
