When I first came home it was fine, but then everyone started going back to work.  And it definitely got a little bit lonely, so I had to start figuring out things to do and people to meet also.  It definitely took me a little while.   I think that’s when everything first sets in, that you’re alone, and you have to start learning to get yourself into routines.  It took me about six months to a year to actually feel that I was comfortable about myself, so I think that’s when I really accepted the injury and everything.
