 Re: Fractured ankle and depression

Sarah, hi and sympathies. Is there any way you can get safely to the yard, to a position from which you can safely watch the horses? If that's not possible, then at least get someone to help you get out into green space - when I was really depressed one evening with my ankle my husband took me to the local park and I was able to lean on a rail and watch the ducks and geese on the lake for a bit and that really helped.

If reading/watching TV is getting old, my other suggestions are:

(1) a craft project - knitting has been mentioned, also e.g. embroidery (bookmarks are good because they don't take too long and you can give them to people - of get a nice horse embroidery to do...
(2) an online course - something you've never had time for - or learning a new language.

HOWEVER, yes you will be very tired (gets better after a couple of weeks).

And definitely see if you can get friends to come round.

Good luck - and talk to us here. We're listening.
