Meyler freely admits the time out has been tough but says the fact he's doing something he loves has helped carry him through.
He told safc.com: "There's a great positivity around the place. This is what I want to do, it's everything I dreamt of as a boy, so you can't dwell on things - you have to concentrate on getting yourself right.
"I still take every day as it comes. When I first got injured I'd set little plans out, but after doing it twice I just take it day by day now.
"I go from session to session and game to game - it's the easiest and best way. My focus every day is on improving myself and getting stronger and fitter."
