DEAR DEIDRE: SINCE I broke my leg, I no longer feel like the same man.
I am 30 and single. During a nasty tackle playing five-a-side football, I broke my leg in three places and had to have an operation.
I live in a flat with no lift so I had to move back to my parents’ house.
I’m better now and I’ve gone back home but I’ve lost my confidence and feel different.
I don’t want to play football any more and don’t even want to go out.

I work, then come home and stay in.
It doesn’t help that I’ve put on weight by sitting around and enjoying Mum’s cooking.
