Belatedly this occurs to me: the broken leg model is very good for talking to people who are ashamed of their illness, usually emotional/mental stuff. A friend was once deeply depressed and on medication after, get this, her reunited-childhood-sweetheart-fiance left her six weeks before the wedding, then quickly married a much younger woman he'd just met. My friend was so ashamed that she couldn't just power on through!

Of course it is NOT the same thing as a broken leg, but the nice thing is that when your broken leg hurts, of course you get whatever treatment you need, no one says you should use willpower and fortitude instead of a cast and a doctor and painkillers and PT afterward.
