Hi Lisa,

I broke my tib/fib and had ankle ORIF surgery in late July. The situational depression hit me hard. I felt so isolated and helpless. In fact, the depression for me was harder to deal with than the physical pain from the fractures and subsequent surgery. It does however alleviate as you move through the recovery process. Like you write, everything takes so much longer to do and requires so much effort. It appears from your post that you are someone incredibly resilient and strong in rebuilding after going through such a life changing event in the past couple of years. Heck, you ride a Harley! Your description of your Costco scooter "road rage" episode made me smile. You can always gently bump into the worst offenders and claim it was accidental! No one will be the wiser! I wish you all the best in your recovery process. I find a lot of support in this forum and reading other people's postings certainly made me realize that what I was experiencing was not unique, which is reassuring.
