Feel free to tell me if I am posting in the wrong place. I have left the hospital after several surgies to repair damage to my right lower leg and foot after being struck by a roll of construction/landscape wire that fell from a cliff behind me while I was watching my kids surf at a beach in Marin County. I have had three surgeries to-date. I am now recuperating at home. I felt a littel blue this morning and recognize that the really hard work will be in the ever so slow process of healing and to much time to ponder things that might make me blue so I decided to go on this forum and interact with people. I would like to hear thoughts on ways to stay positive when you must mostly rely on others for most things. I have access to my laptop so thats a positive : )View Thread
