You can get your nose back :)
Don't be too hard on yourself. People break their noses very often and this is one of the most commonly fractured bones in the human body.
Depending on the severity of the fracture a good rhinoplasty surgeon will evaluate your nose and then determine the best course of treatment for you. Based on the fact that you are noticing that your breathing has been effected as well we would wonder if you either dislocated or fractured your septum as well. Your septum is the middle wall between the two sides of your nose.
The good news is that in the hands of rhinoplasty specialists you should be able to get very close if not completely back to your original happy nose.
