Thanks for opening up Jacquie. I'm a 53 y/o male who broke his right hip running the Boston Marathon back in April. I used to cry periodically about what happened for about a month or so. I was constantly playing the "what-if" scenarios in my head. I was often blaming myself over what happened, frustration that I could not be active as I was and that I had to rely on others to do things. Like others have said we just have to let it out, this is a traumatic event we all have experienced. One thing I tell myself everyday is I am grateful to be alive. Things will probably never be the same as it used to be so we just have to accept that fact and just move on. We always have to have hope in our heart and mind or else depression will just eat us alive and we cannot let it win this battle. Be well everyone and God Bless!
