If you, or someone you
know, need someone to talk to:
1850 609090 (Ireland)
08457 909090 (UK inc. N. Ireland)
Contact your local doctor - search under 'General Practitioners' in the Golden Pages or search here
Go to, or contact, the Accident and Emergency Department of your nearest general hospital. Don't hesitate - you wouldn't if it was your leg that was broken. You have a valid reason and nobody's going to get annoyed. At the very least the person on the phone will "triage" or assess you and offer advice.
These are great links below. There's a lot of help out there, a road well travelled by others before you who want to pay it back and help.

Making a personal pledge to help ourselves, and help others, however we can, is a new way of instigating social change. We see "the" news, don't we? And feel powerless to help. Well this process turns that powerlessness into change for good. Here's two schemes, one we support and one of our own.
