Mental is the hardest part of crashing for me.        

There's always a 5 minute period where I decide that it's not good for my family for me to ride and I'm not going to do it again. And then I realize that my life would be very empty without riding.

People throw uturns in front of you all the time here. Other than expecting them to do it and having a loud horn, there's not much you can do. I know wrist injuries take a bit of time to heal. I hope it doesn't mess up the rest of your life too much.

And get some help if you don't get over the mental aspects of it in good time. My shrink helped me lot with my anxiety, helping me to ride again, and making me a decent person to live with after I hit my head a couple years back.

I hope everything works out all right. Take your time, and I'm sure you'll feel like riding again. Maybe commuting just isn't for you. LA is full of buttholes, but it's not the only place like that. Maybe a car, much as I hate to say it, might make your life easier, at least on the commute.
