 Re: The hardest part of have a broken leg

Hey Bruno,

That is a horrible way of breaking your leg! But from experience, I can say the mental trauma from a break is much more difficult to deal with then the physical. The bones will heal and your muscles will strengthen in time, but their will always be this little voice in your head that is scared about breaking your leg again. So you start holding back when you do physically challenging things because your body and mind are TERRIFIED of another break.

I think the only way to get past that fearful feeling is to just do things in spite of that annoying fear, and eventually that voice will go away. It happened with my first break, although now breaking my leg a second time, I have to deal with overcoming that fear times two. XD

So donít worry, fear of never getting back to normal is normal with any major injury. Give yourself time to heal physically, and then the mental anxiety will slowly start going away. :)
