 Re: Broken fibula, torn tendon@6 weeks
Michael Davison    6:44am May 1 2019

Hello Mary Ann,

I am sorry to hear about your injury. It's definitely a life changing event when you break a part of your leg. Feelings of vulnerability, frustration, and even loneliness are pretty normal after this type of event. I too depend on my spouse for many everyday things, and she's 8 months pregnant. Try to remind yourself that it's only been 5 weeks since the injury. Be patient with yourself. You deserve it. You will get back to your normal self in the near future. In the mean time, keep yourself occupied with any of your interests that don't require you to move around (reading, watching movies, listening to music, talking with friends/family on the phone). I've been NWB for six weeks. I know how much it sucks. But I remind myself daily that I hurt my leg badly and that it needs time to heal.

Sending positive vibes your way.


Mike
