The emotional scars of a fractured limb are often underestimated. You have had a huge change in your life and your independence has been compromised. It is quite normal to feel despair, anger, frustration or tearful. Some of the entries in my diary when I was in the early stages of healing show this: My life is over; I weep for my past life; what is life with a concrete pillar for a leg? etc etc.
BUT it will get better. Please believe that and visit this friendly supportive site often. Good luck.
