 I知 a college student that just got a full leg cast... help!!!

Hey I知 Marisa. So my life has been turned upside down. I知 an active college student and was playing volleyball with some friends last night. I fell weird on my leg and it hurt like really bad. But I thought it was probably ok.

So I couldn稚 sleep last night and this morning I was like I have to go to the urgent care clinic. I知 thinking maybe it痴 sprained or something at this point. I thought I might have to wear a boot. But they took X-rays and told me that I had a fractured tibia down near my ankle.

They put me in a full leg cast (toes to upper thigh) and I have to wear it for at least 4 weeks. I got bright pink. It痴 so huge and awkward! I致e never even had a cast before.

My first thought is how do I get around campus? They gave me crutches but no wheelchair. How do I bathe? I live in a dorm so I only have crappy showers. What is there to do about people staring at me around campus? It make me really uncomfortable. Any other tips are great. Thanks.
