 Re: Boyfriend’s broken legs
SMM    3:50pm Feb 21 2020

Hi Jay,
I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriend's injuries. It sounds like the accident was fairly recent. How is he doing? Hope all is getting better and better.

Actually, I don't think his behaviour is really anything to be too concerned about. it really doesn't sound destructive. Maybe he is coping with the injury. I know from the first time I broke the leg (decades ago) that some things do change. Ever since that first break, I've just disliked having my leg touched. Maybe the accident has had a similar type of effect on your boyfriend? I would just ask him specific questions. Maybe--How are you coping? Is there any pain? What/does anything make you uncomfortable in any way? I would also express/verbalize support for his well-being/accomplishments..."It's great that you've...." Maybe just me, but I would avoid the generic questions like "How's the leg?". That one used to irritate me, but maybe because so many people asked it so often.

Best wishes,
Matt
