    I've been on crutches 2 other times,

    and now this is the third time. I actually have a question though. since I can only wear sweat pants, I have no pockets. sweat shirt pockets are too shallow to hold my phone so I can listen to music. does anyone know how I can crutch along places while listening to earphones?

    Three Times

    I was on crutches in grade school for several weeks with a severely sprained ankle, 8 weeks in high school when I broke my leg and once in college when I tore the ligaments in another ankle.  If nothing else it's a good way to build upper body strength.

    So Did I.

    When I was about 10 years old I went through a glass door that was shut in my face on purpose and I didn't stop in time. Glass and blood everywhere as my left leg at my shin was sliced open and I could feel the cold going into my leg. I was in hospital for a few weeks and many...
