    Hey, I don't post often but im always lurking.
    I have chronic pain in my ankle since an attempt 18months ago. 3 surgerys to re-aline my bones in my ankle and reduce the pain when I walk were somewhat disappointing. Every step I take is a reminder and I feel that its holding me back. I was a cutter but the wounds do heal and are no way near as debilitating as the pain that I feel all the time in my left ankle.
    Do you have any chronic pain or after effects from your suicide attempt/s?
    Share and thank-you xo

    What, so your ankle became unaligned when you tried to kill yourself? I find that very hard to believe. Were you told that your attempt was the reason?

    I jumped off a building, broke my tibia and shattered my fibula.

    Ohhhh now I get it. Sorry you are in pain. Are you happy that you survived?

    I have two suicide attempts behind me and no long term damage. I am very close to a person who lost both legs below the knee from her attempt. She doesn't feel the kind of chronic pain you do but she is very physically limited and ashamed of her prosthetic legs.

    I hope you can get permanent relief from your pain and full mobility :arms:.
