This Darn Ankle Injury

ChallengeWell, I injured my ankle in February and I am still recovering. It has been a long road and I am trying to keep my head up about it. It’s hard to remain cheerful after gaining weight from inactivity and not really being able to move around the way I am accustomed to. I usually walk a lot so this has been a real challenge for me and I try to remember that it will be better soon enough. My friends and family have been a huge help and I am grateful to them for all of their support.

What I am very aware of, when I am feeling better, is that I have many friends. When I feel badly I don’t feel like there is anyone who cares. That’s just my mind playing tricks on me. The main thing is to remember is that every friend counts, whether near or far away.

I also have to remember that I will get well soon enough and all of this will be like a bad memory. I just have to do my homework and move forward. My volunteer work has kept me very sane and has put a great deal of perspective on things. I tutor adults in reading and math and it is very humbling. I realize that there are others who struggle with obstacles in their lives, whether it is loneliness, lack of education or injuries. Loneliness is my thing. That, and struggling with depression at times.

In any case, it is possible to overcome obstacles with enough work and motivation towards success. One step at a time and one day at a time.
