I make a mistake during my rehab for a long standing injury that has had disastrous consequences.

I suffered a serious injury a year ago, after 6 months of intense rehab I was almost recovered. Then I really overdid it during a training session and essentially put myself back to the beginning. The fallout has seen me spend thousands more on medical bills, be off work for 6 months, have to move home with my parents, lose my relationship and be in a lot of pain.
How do I cope knowing that my actions have led to all this physical and emotional pain?
I can't stop imagining what every aspect of my life would be like I had not done this. Any tips on to stop ruminating much appreciated.
