    I have broken my right arm twice!

    The first time I was playing with a friend who lived down the street, and tripped on the uneven sidewalk. The second time I broke it, I was running in church. (punishment from God?) It has healed well with no effects- the doctors say it is stronger than before it broke, but...

    my uncle took me and my sister to the elementary school playground. While we were there, I fell and hit my head on the blacktop. It hurt but only for a bit. But, being young, I cried and the look on my uncle's face look frightening. From what I remember, I was gushing blood out...

    Broke my wrist during a game of rugby.

    ....Almost fractured the growth plate by just a hair...otherwise I would have had a T-Rex arm. On the bright side, I can pop my wrist bone for as long as I want haha.

    Eighth grade. Some of my friends were over

    and we decided to try a cheer maneuver we'd seen at my older sister's practice. I volunteered to be the flyer and they ended up dropping me. Landed on my wrist wrong and broke it. Oops. Dumb move on our part, looking back.

    and I hate it because you're at the mercy of others. Having to ask for help for the littlest things. But I wonder if that's how the needy feel.

    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 should actually say I've had a LOT of broken

    bones. I've broken an arm, a foot, my collar bone, a few ribs, and all of my fingers and toes (many of them twice, and a few three times). I think I just live dangerously.
