 Re: Today has been a little better

Steven, it can be rather an emotional rollercoaster, particularly at the start. This is a good place to come and vent when you need to, as we've all been there. Note that you'll probably have further dark days as well as good ones. It's normal so don't beat yourself up because you feel down - particularly for example when you're lying there with a wet and heavy full leg cast (it DOES dry). And ask if you need practical tips on everything from reducing itching to coping with crutches and immobilisation, as there's probably at least one person on here who will have an answer!

Good luck!
