    i've never broken anything (touchwood) but i have sprained my neck 3 times, my ankles about 8 times collectively, my wrists about 5 times collectively, and i nearly dislocated my shoulder in a car accident.

    oh yeah an i forgot i might need a kidney op as it gets reinfected every year and i get dizzy and hallucinate when it's infected.

    :wth: Some people get all the luck.

    When I was 4, I split my chin open while dancing in Zellers. It needed 8 stitches.4 years later, I was making an igloo with a few friends and I slipped on some ice and split my chin open again on a block of ice I was carrying.

    In Grade 5, I was playing Tag and I *inhales* ran into a door. :blush: I ended up breaking my collar bone. I realized it was broken after my impact with the door. I waited for a hospital for 3 hours to hear from doctor, "Your collar bone... it's broken!" *gawks fakely* Big surprise there. It was the worse, I cried nearly everyday, it was so painful to sleep. I had to wear a harness for a month and a half. Plus the bone grew back funny. :wth:

    I've sprained ankles, wrists and popped blood vessels in toes, fingers... whatever. lol. I was quite the injury prone child. Thank God, I've matured and I'm not so klutzy. :p

    One time, at summer camp....


    I broke my pinkie!

    :lol:


    The pinkie was halfway down the side of my hand, and halfway in. I remember me and my friend Mike sitting on the steps of the Chalet of the camp going "Cool" and "turn it a bit to the left". I had to wait like 6 hours in the hospital :angry:

    I never broke anything that I remember of.

    My knee dislocates every now and than, though. But no one knows about that. *Wink

    people who break bones all the time may have osteogenesis imperfecta type 1 and not know it.
    if you've seen the film Unbreakable you'll know what I mean.

    Well I cant remember others (i'll post them when I can remember them)

    It was red nose day (about 2 years ago) and I was wearing baggy trousers (pants in american) and I ran down the stairs, not too fast tho, and tripped on about the 4 stair at the bottom and i fell head first on to a corner of a door frame (sharp) and cracked my head open, I ran up stairs cuz my mum was shouting at me and I was holding my head, I took my hands away and blood poured out of my head ( like a tap, literaly) and I called my mum she came up stairs to help me, about a minute after I felt really sick and when all white, and felt really unwell.
    I went to hospital and they clued the cut ( I hate stitches) and they told me I had concusion. MAN DID THAT HURT

    Had surgery two years ago because I had two teeth in my lower gum. It was the canin tooth that never growed and a fifth canin tooth that wasn't supposed to exist and they were stuck right under the four frontal teeth. It hurt.

    And I had breast surgery last august to make them smaller... :wth: lost any sensation my skin had on those parts for about three days.

    I don't think I had any other injuries or surgeries apart from thsoe two. If I find more I'll edit!

    For some reason, I'm always getting ingrown toenails which get infected. They're painful and disgusting, so I have to get them removed. Even though my feet are numbed, it still hurts like hell.

    But I've had no injuries. I've never broken a bone or anything. In middle school during gym I was hit directly in the eye with a hockey puck. It hurt, but when the pain went away later that day, I didn't even have a black eyes. I was lucky, but that was the last time I played goalie ;)

    the worst thing that happened to me was when i cut my foot open. i was at the swimming pool when i was climbing out i felt the shapr tiles rip my skin (i can feel my foot as i write this) i didnt want to look down i looked and there was blood everywhere i ran to the life guard and they taped it up i had to get 3 stitches and they thought i mite have dont damage tot he tendons in my big toe cuz it was right where the toe starts. i think it has cuz i ant move my toe properly but i didnt say anything. it was disgusting but it didnt hurt. i had to take the stiches out myself becuase when they had to be taken out it was a long weekend so the doctor was away and i wasnt gonna let anyone else do it.

    ugh-my sister had an ingrowing toenail and you could actually smell it when she was in the room-it was disgusting.
    osteogenesis imperfecta is basically osteoporosis and it means your bones aren't very strong and they break more easily than someone with healthy bones.

    You know, the night before I broke my arm all my friends were discussing injuries, and I said almost the exact same thing as you, minus the part about stitches...I think I even said "I rule."

    :wth:

    :rolleyes: [/b][/quote]
    I've never broken or sprained anything either. The closest I've ever come to bodily harm was when I grazed my knee and elbow as a kid, and also several weeks ago when my left index finger was whacked by a basketball. To this day I still can't bend it properly and the finger joint seems a bit stiff. My injuries are very minor compared to what everyone else has gone through. Also, I've never visited a hospital either. :lol:

    o yeah I remember these injuries both involving golf clubs.

    When I was five, a friend was over and we were playing golf with plastic golf clubs. I stood behind him when he was about to swing (not a good idea) and he accidentally hit me right to the left of my left eye. I went to the hospital and still have a small scar to this day from it.

    This injury is fvckin hilarious (it hurt then but it seems funny now). I was just swinging a golf club around side to side carlessly and accidentally struck myself in the right side of my head :lol: :lol: :lol: . I was running around the yard in pain, then went inside, and my dad took me to the hospital. I needed three staples.

    I've never broken or sprain anything (nock on wood) yet... but I have had some moles removed, and I've had some in-patient surgery on my neck to remove a cyst... THREE TIMES. The first or second time (can't really remember...) the doctor gave me a couple of injections to numb it, but they wore off immediately and I felt (and heard, ack!) the knife cutting into my neck, and I could feel when she was giving me stitches. Not a very fun experience at all...

    I never had a broken bone, or whatever.

    I only have scars :lol:


    Once i was tackled at soccer.. and that really hurt. But i got over it and i kicked him back :chemist:

    Couple months later i kicked the ball wrong and my leg really hurts and i couldnt kick the ball hard. I couldnt even pass the ball at a 5meter distance :lol: So that sucked big time.
