    connection between injuries and being depressed

    hi everyone,
    I recently injured my achilles heel, and in recovery.
    I noticed in the past two days since the injury my thoughts in general have been more negative, and my brain
    for some stupid reason keeps on bringing up bad ( stressful ) memories. I generally am a positive guy and the gym helps
    keep me like that.
    Does this make sense? Anyone ever feel like that after an injury?
    I have still been hitting the gym, but doing more upper body stuff, and not putting pressure on my left leg which has the heel issue.

    Appreciate people's perspective on this.
    I don;t diet, I deadlift.

    I understand. The gym helps keep me "balanced". I'm serious when zi say that if I didn't regularly go to the gym, I'd probably be on some low level anxiety meds. Just go and do what you can. I hope you feel better soon.

    I struggle with the same type of response, and I think most others do too. Alter your workouts and give it time.
