A long way from where I started

I've broken rather a lot of myself and can only echo what Mr. Bomz said above:

I'd say to have more small term goals than big when recovering. It's good to see the big picture but when you are broken too much of the big picture is overwhelming.

It's great to have a picture in your mind of one day being able tackle the goals you had before the injury, but when it takes everything you have just to move your leg a few inches, it is better to focus on moving your leg half an inch further today than yesterday than to worry about whether you'll climb K2 next year.

Jgill, so great to learn from your experience!

Being active EVERY day is key. Finding the right amount of excercise when recovering from injury is NOT easy. My philosophy is I would rather be too active than too passive (being 60 years old).

My mantra, "I will be back", is very helpful too, even if it's not true :-)

The 'illusion' jgill speaks of has kept me strong and returned me to health through many trying times.

Perspective and attitude are within your control.
Be consistent with your training and know this will benefit your progress. When motivation evaporates, put your head down and keep working, knowing that this is what you need to do to return to health.

Be selfish and stubborn with your health. Hold onto it as if your life depends on it.

might want to look into using growth hormone (HGH) or if that is too hard to find (it is illegal after all) then look into these injectible peptides: CJC1295 without DAC, GHRP2, GHRP6, and Ipamorelin. You need the first one and one of the latter three combined together as daily injections 2-3 times. This will boost GH levels to that of a 20 year old man and your recovery will astound your doctor provided you are doing it in conjunction with rehab exercises and a sound diet.
