 Re: How has your broken leg changed yourself?
Nicola Stan    3:17am Feb 17 2019

Thank you Petros, Matt and Emily for your replies, really appreciated your time. People are so very different and all with different broken leg stories and recoveries. As you know I think of my break and recovery as a graph that is not linear but has a bottom (the day of my break) and the top (recovered), but now I'm actually thinking what my expectations are for the top of the graph and what the 'recovery' will actually look like? Will that not be linear also? Should I have expectations and a goal to work towards? I'm on the recovery line, hopefully half way, but I think I'm on a slight downwards these past few weeks. - Hopefully it will flow upwards shortly again. I'm starting to think towards what my future will look like and how different it will be, compared to how my life was before. I have more empathy for people in general. I'm usually so gung ho, but I have a fear factor now and watch as opposed to get involved in adventurous activities. I'm still not clear of my limitations at the moment. I try to practice 'Well fullness', appreciating the here and now and my surroundings, instead of the past or future, but pain seems to sap this ability sometimes and this is when I feel 'low'. I understand people have more extreme stories and I should appreciate more, but I find I lack sometimes. I get angry and frustrated and sad also - happy also! But I have no excitement currently. Again, thank you so much for all of our replies, it helps me from your experience, and how you are actually living with your break, and how you have lived with your break. I think I need to have more patience and for now, there seems no answers and I need to be content with this. Have a lovely Sunday. Nicky.
