Mental Health Fine Print?

Does anyone have any examples of mental health fine print that are useful to you?

It’s important to me, but I struggle to find lines I can draw that I wouldn’t abuse.

We talked about it a little bit here: Derailing for mental health reasons?

Closest I have is number 5:

  1. My wife vetos the derail (due to sickness or any other reason).

I figure if I’m having enough trouble, I can ask my wife to activate her special power. I feel like the fact that I have to ask her to do it makes it less likely to be abused.

In practice, I’ve tried to keep my stakes low enough that I can just derail if I seriously need a break, so I haven’t had to activate number five.
