    Walking out of a restaurant watching out

    for my niece and nephew that were 1 and 3 at the time. I didn't notice a small step and rolled my ankle but immediately caught myself against a square post by wrapping my arm around it. My hand got tingly and I went to shake my arm because it felt really weird... the next step...

    All In One Night

    I was 16, never had a broken bone (pinky's and toes don't count at this point), stitches, or surgery of any kind.  My brother and I were coming home from a Family Reunion.  We'd stopped at my sisters house for a little bit then headed home.  About 20 blocks from...

    A broken pinkie finger in 7th grade.

    Someone fell on it while we were playing basketball. I didn't tell anyone for about a week until my friend's parents noticed the swollen black and blue finger. That was a mistake because the doctor had to re-break it to set it. That hurt! A broken nose when I was riding...

    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...

    Not Just One

    I was a little girl with three older brothers and 6 male cousins  and a younger brother all within a five year age group. To say I was a tomboy is an extreme understatement. I did EVERYTHING the boys would allow me to do with them....and I did not do any of it as well as them...

    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

    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)
