Starting over? second and third time working out since Achilles tendon ruptured

How many times can you start over ... Probably every time you go flat on your face ...
The end of february I seemed to get a grip on my eating and it seemed I could exercise again. Well not entirely or better entirely not. Well booo hooo
Somehow the recovering of my tendon went sour. It grew stronger most defently. Sadly enough the pain grew as well. Not when I was at fysiotherapy. Everything I had to do I did without pain and it looked effortless on the outside. As soon as I came home the pain started and remained untill the day of my next treatment. I worked out painless and effortless. It even seemed as if the thing was improving. Maybe it was except I was limping the rest of the days incapable of doing anuthing on my elliptical. My therapist couldn't understand what was going on. He knows my pain reception during excercise is weird (not feeling strain or pain even when I should untill afterwards) but it didn't explain the limping and contunious pain I had the next couple of days.
Because of stress at work I wasn't eating right either. Wel you can do the math can you ...
This monday we finaly figured it out. The pain was part of strechting. The damded thing is still to short and stiff. It gets stronger, but it doesn't lengthen the way it should. It was way to stiff. So we changed routine. Last thursday I didn't do any exercise. My fysio tortured me in a compleet different way and boy did that hurt. My tendon felt like minced meat afterwards. But it's a little less short and a little less stiff. More importent I don't have a limp and I can exercise! And that is what I did yesterday and today. I was great. And there is no bad responce either.
If I can controle my food as well (I did yesterday ... and that's a start) It might go the right way
