I try to describe to well intended friends and family that this has changed my life. But, how can you describe those changes without sounding like a complainer. I dont really feel like telling everyone I know all the ways in which this has changed me and why. Frankly I dont think most people have a true understanding of what it means to have their whole life come to a complete stop and when it slowly begins its momentum that the process is long.
I dont feel like telling people yeah I know that injury was 6 months ago but I have high pain days still. I still feel uncertain about how long my foot will last. I still can't traverse uneven ground very well. I often fear falling and thats just the begining of my emotions on this topic.
Tonight I had to let one of my best friends down. She needs me and i am not going to be there for her.
'How has this injury changed you?' There just isn't an accurate way to describe it.
