A-Z Journey of a Broken Foot (Lisfranc Injury)



If you’d like to know about my own injury, here’s a link to the inside scoop:) But my daily A-Z posts are more general and informative, just so, if the time comes, you know what someone is going through because, trust me, it’s not ‘just a broken foot!’

DEPRESSION - A mental condition characterized by feelings of severe despondency and dejection, typically also with feelings of inadequacy and guilt, often accompanied by lack of energy and disturbance of appetite and sleep: 'she was referred by a psychiatrist treating her for depression' ....... I am sure I am not alone when I say I had horrible bouts of depression during the first few months. Becoming housebound and reliant on others is very hard, especially when you're normally a busy person! I'm thinking this isn't exclusive to LF, but anybody that has limited control and/or is housebound. So if you know someone who has had any sort of injury/illness, make an extra check on them :)

  1. As much as I love being housebound, I think I would be pretty depressed if I didn't at least have the option to leave.

    1. I think that's exactly it JoJo, it's different if it's a choice rather than forced x

    1. Thanks Susanne, I think it sort of sneaks up on you and you don't realise you're getting depressed until it's quite severe. I hope your little one is better x

  3. Depression is a bigger factor in a lot of conditions than I think we generally realize. Facing even temporary limitations is difficult.

    1. Thanks Doreen, I think it's a side effect that's hidden and not given the attention it needs. Thanks for visiting x
