 Re: Changes to my body since my injuries

Hey Michael,

Yes, my body / leg / legs has definitely changed - I think I've put on about an extra stone and obviously lost my fitness and muscle level. My broken leg doesn't look thinner, just feel unmuscled (is that a word?) Although my foot on my broken leg felt like baby feet - really soft, all hard skin removed naturally by not walking on it. When my leg started mending I noticed my hair started growing quite quickly also - maybe it was the additional vitamins I was taking at this particular time. Being able to get outside (or close to a window with fresh air / wind / sunshine (even clouds!) at least once a day not only made me feel better in myself, but my bone even felt better!!! Also, my toenail stopped growing for a bit but as soon as my leg started healing my toenails started growing. It's funny the small things you notice. This time last year compared to this year compared to next year I'm going to look different and feel different - I mean I even feel different to 2 months ago....My hubby didn't cope with my negative feelings too well in the beginning, he didn't like to see me cry and upset and angry and frustrated, but after a while of talking and helping each other we have grown stronger - he knows me more today than last year and we have known each other for 17 years!!! Try and stay strong Michael, this is just a phase - a f**cking awful stage, but it is a stage, take each day by day...notice the small things, and listen to your negative thoughts but reassure yourself this is understandable at this stage, allow yourself to feel these thoughts, but remember - your body is really really trying to get better and it is using an awful lot of energy. Provide food, rest, positive thoughts, things to occupy yourself, fresh air, football (I see Rooney is arriving at Derby?)....take care!!!! Nicky x
