    What Haven't I Broken?

    In fact of the over 200 bones in the body I've only had 7 broken. That's the tomboy in me combined with a very slow learning curve. I had two speeds when I was a kid: Stop and full speed ahead. When I hit something (like the ground) it wasn't gentle. I've fractured my left femur...

    A long time ago, I broke my left pinky in two

    locations, on up more towards the palm and then again about halfway down the finger. I did the dumbest thing ever to break it... I hit my other arm, in a spot that was soft. To this day, it still sometimes hurts and is longer then my other pinky

    I Broke My Arm While Roller-skating

    During my Senior year of high school, I went to the roller skating rink with the youth group from my church. I loved going places with them, but I didn't know how to skate. My youth leader reassured me that it would be fine, because he would teach me how to skate. Once I got my...

    I just recently dislocated my shoulder with the

    chance of a small fracture. But I'm gonna pump up on Oxycoton and wait until my basketball season is over. If it is broken it will be my third broken shoulder. Yay (sarcasm)

    For years, I used to brag

    that I never had a broken bone in my life; even though, I wanted one because I saw all the attention a person got with it. The closest I ever got was a chipped tooth. I found out I had fractured my upper back when I was involved in an auto-pedestrian accident.
