My journey in learning to appreciate my achilles

Archive for August 8th, 2010

Fun activities while NWB

If you are anything like me, you might wonder what Boris Becker or David Beckham did when they ruptured their achilles… Well here’s my list of fun things to do (or still enjoy) from the “comfort” of a cast:
* reading (lots of books you always wanted to but never could quite justify taking the time to; among others I finished Vikram Seth’s “A Suitable Boy” at this time)
* learning guitar (or an instrument) or another language
* use your hands: knitting / quilting / crochet
* write that first novel you always wanted to (clearly about someone with an achilles injury)
* make your own website (or update it)
* watch all those DVDs you always wanted to
* have a nice bath (it’s not the same, particularly while in a hard cast, but it can still be ok, with bubble bath and candles and nice music)
* organise your photos / computer / files
