Recovery is really hard work. It can be like a full time job, in addition to whatever jobs/education/responsibilities you have! Recovery can mean different things to different people, and maybe recovery isn’t the term you or a loved one uses in regards to their mental health, but the idea is the same: managing your illness, living with them, and learning how to function and live each day with them takes a lot of work and effort!
This zine talks about that thing. I hope it can be validating for you or a loved one or a stranger.
