 Re: 6 weeks ago I was hit by a car

Hi Jay,

I'm so sorry to hear of how you came about to break your leg. A lower limb fracture is tramautic and life altering enough but having it occur as a result of being hit by a car brings it to a whole other level. Plus, you're having to deal with other injuries as a result of the accident.

It seems like your recovery is going great though. No two patients' recoveries are alike and no two doctors/physio therapists are alike in terms of treatment for their patients. You are young and motivated so it seems like you are a good candidate to progress quickly through rehab.

In terms of sleeping, before my accident, I used to be one of the world's best sleepers. Head on pillow, out like a light. Now my sleep is fragmented and I don't sleep deeply - waking up often. Initially, I attributed it to the pain and discomfort of my cast/boot. Now I don't know, maybe it's because I'm not exercising and being outside as much as I used to. I don't get that great tired feeling after being outside all day biking or hiking.
