I think I was nine when the chain guard cover on my bike cut into my shin on my left leg as I was biking in tight cirlces. The metal (knife) edge cut a triangle into my leg - 9 stitches later ....the scar is still vivid.
What I remember most is not being able to ride my bike but limping home with it as I wasn't allowed to lend my bike. I think the needle to freeze the area to give me stitches hurt more than anything. Thank goodness for delayed pain reaction.
I was working in a bakery and i was packing glazed pasterys and i cut myself on one of them, it's edge had crystalized and when i picked it up to pack it i cut my hand and had to get 8 stitches!!! The rest of the girls never let me live it down
First one, I almost cut the tip of my finger off with a steak knife. I wanted to cut a pear, and we had just gotten the knives. For some reason, I didn't cut it like normal people would, I tried to hold it with my hand.
Second one, we were doing a frisbee section in PE. I bent over to pick mine up and someone else's frisbee hit me in the eye. My cornea ended up scratched, had to wear a patch for a couple of days.
Well, Injuries.. I don't remember which one happened firsts, but I was still in grade school for each.
Injury 1: I had a bunch of friends over one evening and we were playing flashlight tag around and sometimes through my then house. Well, my back door entrace was a sliding glass door (double glazed). Because it was dark and the lights inside were on, I thought it was open as I ran away, with the aim of cutting through the house to get to the front yard.
Yeah. It was closed. I ran full force into a closed door so hard I bounced back off and landed flat on my back. Couldn't move for about ten minutes but I found the situation more amusing than painful (and it HURT) that I couldn't get up for laughing a good while longer.
Injury 2: Ok, my brothere and I are both notorious sleep talkers, movers, walkers, you name it we do it. One night I had a dream I was at a swim meet (ex-swimmer) but we were running the race in the water. I guess I sleep running in my bed because I woke up with a severe pain in my right foot. Turns out my big left toe had caught the underside of my right big toe and nearly tore off the entire toe pad. ouch.

ya see, I was doing the horizontal cha cha with my (then) guy, and he "missed" his target, smushed his mentionables into some solid part of me somehow, and snapped his manhood. It made a loud pop, I kid you not. The medical term for what happedend is called: "Penile Fracture". (Of course there are no bones to fracture)... but it is a real genital injury, and horrible, and an awful fright to behold. He doubled over, it was bent, and hung there slack and crooked and pitiful,and it started turning some terrible colors. Yes he saw a Dr. for it...but I must say it was pretty embarassing to admit that i broke a man's whatnots!
OMG!!!!! that can really happen? I saw that on a movie once called "The New Guy". I didn't realize that could really happen!!!

What's the strangest accident or injury you've ever had?
I was working in a nursing home and helping a lady get a shower at 3am (she was an early riser and requested to have her shower at this time). when i reached for the soap and her washcloth, my shoe slipped I did the splits and i fell on my face, literally!! I had bruised all the ribs on my right side and my sternum. not to mention pulled all the muscles in my groin and shoulder on my right side. it wasn't fun. I had to sleep with a pillow on that side of my body for a week!!
When I was about 5, a bunch of us kids were playing in the front yard having fun. One little girl went home crying and later her parents came down to ask my folks if I was OK. Seems she tripped and fell nose first into the back of my head and broke her nose. Then when I was 5th grade and my little brother was 3rd, we were playing soccer in a friends yard and we both slid in to kick the ball. But me and my cowboy boots missed and hit him instead and I broke his leg. The only thing I've done to myself was in grade school and we were going off jumps on our bikes. I didn't know the lad in front of me had wiped out until I was in the air. I landed on him and then my nards were introduced to the goose neck, and I do mean goose, of my bike. Not only dis I have blue b*lls, but they were black and blue.
At 12, I was playing football with the neighborhood boys and was running backwards to catch a pass. The next thing I knew, I ran out of lawn.. I went through a hedge that bordered the lawn which topped a small hill. I landed on the sidewalk below, with my weight on my ankle breaking it. The boy who threw the pass felt so bad, he carried me home...(Good thing I was much lighter then...)
Hmm I got scratched in the eye ball once by a stuffed mink LoL.. And worse yet I have a vision prob.. And scratched the good one..I had to wear a eye patch for weeks that was embarrassing..Must have been funny tho.. Watching me try to do anything.. I actually missed my mouth trying to eat once.. LoL To make it worse I was still in school at the time..
I used to date this gorgeous red head, 14 stone and proud of every ounce and not in the least bit reserved.
One afternoon we were getting all pasionate on the living room floor,she decides she's gonna hump my brains out and climbs on top......everything is great for a while untill I felt a small pain in my groin,nothing much, certainly not gonna stop! We conclude our activity , I go to stand up and..... ! it hurts, she had to call me a doctor, a very nasty groin strain, girls on top are strictly rationed now LOL.
My dad used to brew home made wines and things, and we were out one day looking for sloes, to make sloe gin, and I was climbing over a barbed wire fence, and got scared by a cow...Barbed wire, one leg over and one not....IT SO HURT!!!
I never really had a bad injury and I hope it stays that way..
But I did have a few minor accidents I try not to remember... lol
I'll make an exeption here. ;)
I was about 6 and lived in a house with older boys. Seeing they were taller, they could just "step" over the fence and I always wanted to do that too.
It was a picket fence, maybe 2 feet high..
Well, little me thinks "I can do that" and starts climbing over the fence.
One foot already on the ground again and then I got my ankle caught between two pickets.. I stood there like a ballerina with one leg on a bar and couldn't get my ankle out.
Daddy had to rescue me and I had a bruised ankle for about a week..
At age 9 I was in third grade and we had our gym lesson. We played a game were a few kids chased the rest of us before the actuall lesson started to warm up.
I'm running with a "catcher" behind me and look back over my shoulder to see were he's at. I turn my head back and see a boy coming up from the side looking back at the kid chasing him and -BAM- we ran into one another.. full impact. the back of his skull hit me right below the right eye. (Thank God, I didn't wear glasses yet at that time.)
I start crying, go to the restroom to cool it and can literally watch my eye turning black.
I looked like a panda and was so afraid my father would get mad at me.
Well, and what did he do when he saw me? He started laughing! He couldn't believe his little daughter really had a black eye. He even took pictures of it because he thought it was funny..
When I was 11 I fell on my nose infront of all my class mates and 2 other classes.
It was winter and I wanted to walk up a wooden ramp like a lot of other kids did, because the stairs were rather narrow (because of the ramp and as you know all kids want to go inside at the same time). The snow on the ramp was pressed to something close to ice but hey, the others could walk over it, why shouldn't I?
I put one foot on it and slipped. I fell straight forward on my nose. I was so startled I couldn't move and then I just felt warm blood running from my nose.
Other than that I had a horse standing on my toe not willing to move, I fell from a horse and it almost stepped on my arm, I jumped of a table and strained my ankle, I cut my ellbow on a water slide at the public pool, I broke my tail bone (do you call it that by humans too?)... just normal stuff, I guess...
