Wow, not an easy road..don't give up! Construction work is a tough job physically ... are there any retraining opportunities or programs? Here in Canada, the government pays people to go back to school. If you list your state in your profile, maybe some American posters can offer suggestions for another source of income. It's certainly difficult to come to terms that you need to give up your profession, but there's hope with alternatives such as online businesses like reselling goods. Focus on your health right now and things will look brighter once you get work comp, it will give you financial breathing room to rethink your career. It's understandable to be depressed ... it's like mourning a loss, where the loss here is your construction profession. You gave it your best in the end in spite of your injuries. Stay strong!
