I was becoming utterly self absorbed. I blame myself, but also understand my circumstances that led to it. I wasn’t sad when my toe was broken, but there is something depressing about being housebound for a month or two and living with the self-doubt as to whether one’s toe will heal properly and allow her to continue living a normal, active life.
