Subject: RE: How to deal with depression caused from injury?***
The biggest thing is to make up your mind now and decide whether or not you will continue to run if the injury takes another month or two to heal. If you are committed to rebuild after that much potential time off, then you can focus your energy on rehabbing and cross-training now.
Try different physical therapies, hit up the bicycle trainer or do some pool jogging...focus on core and your diet. It is up to you whether you want to come back 20 lbs overweight and with an aerobic system you have to spend most of the year dusting the cobwebs off of, or return at race weight, lean and mean, and are back to where you left off within a matter of a few months, assuming you don't rush things.
I know elite athletes that have taken the same amount of time off and come back to have one of their best years on the track.
