 Re: Broken Foot

Both: feeling depressed and anxious at this stage is normal, so don't beat yourselves up about it. With time the pain will reduce, your ability to sleep (if that's been disrupted - often is) will improve, and you will feel less depressed/depressed for less of the time. Keep your vitamin D levels up (take supplements, particularly if you're in the northern hemisphere, since it's autumn), get outside into natural surroundings, even an urban park, if you can (will need assistance) as that can help with mood. Find several things to do to pass the time and switch between them before you get bored.

Good luck!
