I broke my ankle playing with the dog outside 7 days ago, the mental recovery is the worst...everything is such hard work, I'm in pain, in a cast, can't sleep, becoming more depressed. I think the worst thing is you have no independence..even going to the loo is hard work, I feel like my apartment is falling apart because I can't hoover etc, I can't carry things around so I can't make a cup of tea and take it to the sofa, or carty washing to the washing machine its driving me insane! I feel like im reduced to sitting on the sofa with my world on a side table.
I try to get as much done as I can without being petrified of falling over, but my good leg gets very tired so I have to stop. I'm extremely agitated all the time because I can't do the things I want to do and plans are out the window, just feel awful.
I know its not going to be like this forever but I just wanted to mention how this affects you mentally.
