I was out walking a year ago and slipped and broke my tib, fib and 3 ankle bones.
Went through all the stages of feeling suicidal because I couldn't do anything for myself stressed because I couldn't be mobile.
Upset because I thought I'd never walk again. Had 2 orif surgeries and done everything the doctors told me to do.
Well a year has passed. I still have a nasty scar but that's it. I dont have a limp I dont have pain. I can walk just as far as I could before I broke it. I played football (soccer) with my nephew kicking the ball without a care in the world.
Just a reminder it does get better, listen to your body go at your own pace. Only you know your limits and push that little bit further every day. If you feel tired stop.
Just keep your head up and don't let the depression side of this beat you!
