    God yes. Before kids I did. Now I don't as I'd have the kids so it wouldn't be a break.

    A change from routine can be very cathartic.
    @sunnyflower sorry you hate your job so much. I've had jobs I loathed. It's so intensely draining.

    I don't think anyone on this thread was suggesting that. I also wasn't born with my mental health issues either. They are a result of too many traumatic experiences.

    We actually have 'mental health' leave at my work. For those times when you just feel overwhelmed and crappy we can apply for a day off without it eating in to annual leave etc I just took one and I needed it!!!

    I think when people comment about taking days off 'for no reason' or 'throwing the phrase around when they don't have mental health problems' it may imply that mental health days only have value for some sectors of the community. I was supporting you by suggesting they are important :-)

    No, never. The guilt would make it horrible and I couldn't relax.

    I agree with this. They can be so important, when you feel like you're to stressed out and not coping. Stress is a killer!! I had a really horrid job about 7 years ago, awful boss and stressful environment. I was so stressed out that I used to throw up every morning when I thought about having to go work, and I broke out in a rash from head to toe! Mental health days were a must. It's just as important for people to look after their mental health as it is for them to look after their physical health - the two are intertwined!

    I have one rarely but enjoy it when i do(usually do movies lunch etc). Atm though i am sick. It was nice to naturally wake up, no alarm going off, no rushing out the door but it sucks coz i am sick.
