 Re: I知 the new guy, broken Talus/shattered Malleolus

Jimmy, sympathies. Mine was not nearly that bad, but I'm back to running ultramarathons now.

Yes, it's horrible watching your leg muscles disappear. However, once you can start weight bearing they do come back.

Mean time, I strongly recommend you find something you can do with your hands to keep occupied. You said you're a handyman. Small-scale carpentry might be something? Any courses that you've never had the time to do that you can do online? Do them. And get out, even on crutches - wrap up warm, get down to your local park or something. Get a friend to come and pick you up and take you there...

Good luck!
