I have a tpf following a skiing injury on 15th December. I had not been skiing for 9 years and managed to have the accident on the first day of the holiday. Now that the trauma is over I am accepting what has happened and will be seeing my new OS in the next few days (my surgeon was at a Grenoble hospital so I can’t really continue seeing him). Adjusting to life without being able to walk (albeit temporary) has been both difficult and eye opening. I hope to be a nicer person by the time I have completed my recovery. Any tips on dealing with the ongoing day after day nuisance of dependency would be appreciated. I’m generally handling it pretty well now as anything feels better than those first few days of shock and horror; being separated from my family (I have three children including a baby) and accepting that the holiday I had planned so long was going to be a life lesson rather than any fun. Still, it’s early days so if there are tips for keeping positive I will lap those up as well. All the stories and advice have been so welcome, thanks for this site.
