I've had my share of stupid injuries but have never broken any bones.

- When I was 5, I fell off a table (yes, stupid) and lost my 2 front teeth.
They took years to grow back

- When I was 9, I was in my sisters' room while they were ironing something.
One of them knocked the (hot) iron over and it fell on my knee, burning thru my skin for a few seconds because I was in too much pain to move it myself.

- When I was 18... I won't even explain the back-story to this one because it was so stupid and embarrassing.
The people that do know the back story almost died laughing when it was told to them tho.


Don't click the spoiler below if you're easily grossed out. It's not that bad tho.
At least it wasn't the pre-stitches photo I took that I couldn't find.

Grade 3 lateral ankle sprain with an avulsion fracture, torn achilles tendon, grade 3 metatarsophalangeal joint sprain (turf toe), separated shoulder... of these surprisingly the turf toe managed to tie achilles tear as the most painful.

Nothing too serious . I once tripped on a wire and face-planted into the metal part of my bed which I never had stitches for......

I never took any risks, and I pretty much just stayed indoors and played videogames my whole life lol. As a result, the worst thing that's happened was just my nail getting ripped off my middle finger (was sowed back on), and the bone getting fractured when I was 8.

In the middle of a basketball game, my kneecap popped out then popped itself back in resulting in a torn ACL. Had surgery and went through therapy for a few months

I've had to get stitches in my head on three different occasions, and I sprained my ankle really bad once. I heard a loud crunching sound, look down at my foot, and saw it twitching, than it crunched again and popped itself back into place.

Did the junkyard portion of my vehicle extrication certification course a few years ago. We have to wear full gear, which weighs around 40 pounds, and leaves only the throat exposed. Well, that day it was 90 degrees and humid. About an hour in, I started to feel light headed. We had been told if at any point we needed it, to get water. By this time, I was so dizzy I could barely keep myself upright. I knocked down about a gallon of water in 30 minutes, finally the light headedness subsided enough for me to resume, and my class completed their training. At our celebratory lunch, I was talking with the instructor/captain of my squad who is also an EMT-IV. I described the symptoms, thinking it was heat exhaustion. When he heard, he thought heat stroke, and I was really surprised I didn't get forced into a hospital trip. I was a bit loopy for the next two weeks, and during that time, my vision went from 20/30 to worse than 20/200.
Other than that, I had my head slashed open with a seatbelt, my sister sliced my face with a belt, I've had concussions, broke several ribs in a sparring match, and I have the lungs of someone who spent 12 years in drug houses and meth labs.

I fell down some stairs and messed up my ankle for almost 3 weeks. (I never got it checked, but I'm pretty sure it was sprained since I did heal. The bruise was pretty nasty). It was difficult to walk the first few days (one of the few times I've been thankful I have a desk job and that we have a lot of banker boxes around the office so I could prop my bad foot up as I worked.) and then I had to be REALLY CAREFUL and avoid stairs (the elevator at my office building is SO SLOW so I hated not being able to use stairs) until I could handle the pressure on my foot again. I learned a VERY IMPORTANT lesson--ALWAYS USE THE DANG HANDRAILS!! If I had done that, I would've been able to save myself, but I was really dumb that day.

I've gotten off lightly with some sprained fingers. If you want to talk about scary I cut my foot on something while camping and I bled a lot.

I burned my hand once on a stove. never broke or sprained anything. I have done many funny, but dangerous things for shits and giggles, also when I was like 10, I pretend I was a wizard, and I had a cape and staff, but when I was playing near the stairs, I stepped on my cape and fell down my large flight of stairs and twisted my body. I was in a decent amount of pain, but I am extremely flexible, so nothing really happened.
