Thanks for the warm words of encouragement , I fractured my 5th metarsal a week go and it was the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life. This first week has been very challenging for me. But Im very optimistic about my recovery after reading your story. Im a letter carrier and I hope and pray I make a speedy recovery so I cant get back to my everyday activities. Im a little uncomforatble at the moment but Im still thankful because it could have been worst.
