Hi all. I broke my ankle on 18th August. Following surgery on the 23rd August I have managed to resume work albeit part time and still non weight bearing. I have coped reasonably well with help from my amazing husband but in the last few days I have been overwhelmed by feelings of depression. I cry at the drop of a hat and am really struggling to come to terms with my loss of independence. I know that this is temporary (though they say full recovery will take over a year) and that there are millions of people in a worse position than me. But somehow none of that matters. I just feel miserable and sorry for myself. I know that there is nothing anyone on here can do. I guess I just needed to let it out. Thank you for listening.
