There are probably postings on the discussion board every 5-7 days regarding depression, because I do think it's normal, given the circumstances we all find ourselves in. Decreased and extremely limited mobility and dependence on others for basics can be hard to get used to. My situation is a bit different since I live alone and have a home office based job, so I end up spending too much time by myself. Also, the part of my job I really enjoy is being out with customers, not sitting at my desk. The good news is that my son will be home from college this summer so about the time I go back to work full time, he will also. I also was in the middle of a move to a new town when I fell, so I don't have as many friends here to drop by or come help. I'm actually doing well this week so far.
You're so early in your recovery....hang in there and just a hint, don't get down when you read some of the postings from people who are still having problems months from date of surgery. Talk to your OS for a realistic timeline....no one break is like another!
