Arrow Your Worst Injury

What has been the worst injury that you have ever suffered.

I have been lucky not to have ever been injured badly, in the first 16 years of my life. The only bones I have broken are my fingers a few times, which isn't bad at all.

The worst I did was break my thumb in grade school. I was wrestling on a trampoline, bent it backwards in a way it wasn't meant to go and broke it.

Other than that, a cut here, a cut there, and a couple concussions.

October 31 2002, a corneal ulcer: a tear on my left eyeball caused by my contacts. 1 or 2 millimeters closer to my pupil and I could've gone blind. Thankfully I didn't (or else how could I be typing to you!?), but I couldn't see for 2 or 3 days without pain while changing rooms with different lighting settings.

Broke one arm and fractured the other(not at the same time). I have also dislocated a couple of fingers catching balls.

Got hit in the eye by a baseball about 5-6 years ago. No major damage and the only time I've had to go to the emergency room.

I dropped a huge bench on my big toe last summer and snapped it in half. I still walked on it but it slowed me down a lot. :/

I also broke a rib playing baseball from the fastest pitcher in the league, that wasn't very fun either

Third degree burns on my right hand.

Lesson learned: stay away from the bonfire when you're drunk

Difficult to know whether Dice is the Terminator or Ben Stiller from Mary and Meet the Parents...

The bad news came in today. I have to get all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled on Friday.

Oh well, it could be a lot worse. I heard you are only in a lot of pain for during the day after.
