I have had the back of my knee ripped open when I was about 6. That was traumatising because grandmother who was a nurse dealt with then and there. I got held down and stitched, not even a painkiller to help. The only other problems I've had was foot injuries. I tripped, fell and sprained my foot. Right now I've got a strained ligament in my foot.

I used to take an acrobatics class and one time I fell and hurt my back. I didn't break my spine or anything (thank god), but I strained it and it hurt for months D:

Another time my whole toe nail was ripped off and, while not serious, it HURT.

I honestly haven't had to many injuries, so my worst one would probably be when a small piece of plastic came flying at my face and it stuck right next to my eye. Like RIGHT next to it. I had to get an xray to make sure no fragments had gotten into places they shouldn't have.

Quite a few broken ankles here.
My worst (that I remember) was probably my ankle too, I don't know if it was broken but the hospital said I'd definitely torn the ligaments in it. Still have trouble with the damn thing now. Serves me right for playing rugby on concrete I guess.

One day while riding my bike I ended fracturing my right arm from trying to protect my head from falling I was only 13 at the time.I was wondering around the neighborhood looking for something to do. I was going as fast as i could for some reason before i knew it my chain fell of the Hub of the bike hit the pavement and sent me flying in those few seconds I had I tried to think of as many possibilities I could to prevent my self from getting hurt. In the spur of the moment I tried protecting my head because I thought that was what I needed to protect the most. As I was upside down in midair I put my hands around my head and hit the pavement. I felt the pain of the bones slightly crack in my wrist and felt blood rushing down my hands and knees. My body was slowly recovering from being in pain. I tried to get help but I was alone no one was around me. A silent voice in the wind blowing as the day starting turning to night. I wasn't far from home when I had fell so I mustard up the courage and strength I had left inside me and began my journey home. When I ended up at my front driveway I noticed no one was home. I put my bike on the porch where I usually put it when I get home. We had a spare key under the Welcome home Hope Your Day Was Pleasant mat my mother bought a couple years before. I open the door when with left hand which just had a couple bruises and scrapes. I don't know if it was the adrenaline coursing through my veins or just the thought of getting home keeping the pain at bay, but suddenly I felt the rush of needle and knives piercing deep with my arm and wrist. As I opened the door I seen... The End.

The worst injury I've had would be dislocating my knee cap, I was trying some new shoes on and my knee cap moved the the side of my knee ans stayed there for a couple of seconds.Once it popped back the pain was excruciating, couldn't walk on it for 3 weeks and had to have a cast on it. I still dislocate it every now and then because of it.


I know that feeling. Happen to me a lot. Bright side for me is had surgery done on my and now it no longer dislocates.

Second degree burns on my hand. It was on my dominant hand, too. So I had to train my brain to use my other hand to do everything. It was rough

I stepped on a nail barefoot once.
I was like 8-9 and my younger brother, around 4-5 brought in a wooden plank and it happened to have a nail still attached to it and I just happen to step on it. I didn't feel any pain until I saw blood dripping from my sock

My worst accident would probably have to be the time the leg of my pants got caught in the gears of my bike. I don't remember much, but I woke up in the hospital and they put two staples on the right side of my head. This happened when I was like 14 or so. Wasn't wearing a helmet at the time. My accidental history pales in comparison to my medical history...

When I was 2 years old I trusted a surgeon I didn't know to sew my head back together after surviving a car roll on a 2-lane highway back in the day. I trusted the ambulance driver to remain sober and alert while he took me, my father and mother to the nearest hospital located 25 miles away. I trusted the 1-piece suit maker to produce a product that successfully repelled germs as I lay face up along a raised railroad grade awaiting rescue. I relied upon the car windshield manufacturer to place shatter plate glass within the confines of that front windshield so I wouldn't get excessively injured as I catapulted through it at great velocity enroute to a hard landing several yards away. I relied upon the laws of physics to propel the automobile away from the rest of my family as they were ejected out during the roll.

That was then. Presently, I rely on God and dumb luck to keep on living.

...it got me wondering - anyone else here, have you ever suffered an injury? What was it, and how bad was it? What's the worst injury you've ever suffered?


Worst I've suffered is tripping over a metal grate and permanently getting a scar on my knee. Then again, I tend to have quite unnoticeable injuries that I can easily recover from (e.g. smacking into a metal pole - I admit I've done that at least twice and my skull has dents in it from those instances ). Nothing overly serious, though.
