Emily_V : week 24 update
Diary entry posted Tue 8:15am 19 February 2019

Not much news. X-ray shows healing continues, the back of my tib is fully callused over and the fibula is slow but showing some signs.
At this point it's just frustrating to wonder WHEN WILL IT BE OVER????? I remember thinking, in the early days of my fracture, that I'll be fine when I can just walk again. But the fear of re-injury and the protective feeling I have about my leg makes everything stressful. I just started watching the series "Wanderlust" on netflix and it opens with Toni Collete's character getting hit by a car. the stress and flashbacks I experience are really frustrating. It's annoying to be fighting tears because a loud car's tires squealed outside my apartment. I guess, to cut short my rambly complaints, that it's fully sinking in that life post-fracture is not going to be the same, and coming to terms with that rather than being angry about it is the best course of action.
All this being said, I am feeling good about where I am and mostly I feel great about my mobility, being able to go out and join real life (kind of) and all that. so here's to the next month! Let's hope the progress continues.
