Default Taking it easy after an injury. Your thoughts?

So, I broke my ankle and fractured my fibula, at the beginning of August this year. It was pretty gnarly and it was on the first night of a 3 night camp out / party that we throw every year near Mt Pilchuck. Long story short, I spent 2 weeks in a hard cast and 2 months in a walking boot. There was all kinds of soft tissue damage, torn ligaments etc. I am walking around fine now but it is still sore. I am doing physical therapy and all that jazz but they told me that I should take it very easy snowboarding this year.

That is a very strange concept for me to try to follow. I know that it is very easy to re-injure my ankle. I guess my problem is that I am a very balls to the wall kind of person. I am not sure that I can keep myself from hitting the park or searching out chutes and cliffs.

Have any of you ever had to take it super easy even though you didn't want to? How does one keep themselves from listening to that evil little devil that tells you "it will be fine just do it"?

Thanks!
