 Re: I can't believe it happened to me, I broke three bones :(

Melissa, my sympathies! Re people staring, not a lot you can do -sorry. DO get out if you can. Getting out into green spaces can really help mentally/emotionally.

As for the boredom: you know you're pretty immobile, and you know it's going to be a couple of months before you're at all mobile again. How can you use that time? Is there an online course you've thought about doing but not had time for? Now's your chance! Book series you want to read/re-read? TV series you want to watch/re-watch? Craft project that can be done mostly with one hand? If possible choose two or three projects (I include all the above as 'projects' in this) and switch between them BEFORE you get bored. Then at least you;ll be able to get to the end and say 'well, I used the time to do X'.

Good luck! Ask here if you have more questions.
