as we have had serious injury , what are some ridiculous injuries you have had in your life before?

i would say slipping on some ice outside Bargin Booze and not being able to walk properly for 3 days afterwards , not fun times.

I broke my leg showing off to my kids on a skateboard. Didn't realise and walked around on it for a week before having it xrayed and potted up.
Decided after just 3 weeks to remove said pot because I had to move house and carry stuff. I poured boiling water into it ( ouch) that didn't work then sawed at it with a carving knife cutting myself fairly badly in the process confused

I was late 20s and an obvious idiot hmm

I shoved a bead up my nose when I was five, just to see if I could. We had to go to the hospital to get it removed
That's not too bad, as I was five but I did the same the ten years later (just to see if I still could) blush

"Just one last snowball fight" begged the DDs.

Stupidly I agreed and ended up with a broken wrist game after a spectacular fall 🙄

Someone rolled over my foot in Central Park as she fell off her rollerblades and broke my ankle... I was just walking innocently on the sidewalk eating and ice cream

Broken baby toes running away from someone chasing me with a worm. (Terrified of worms) whacked the toes off a door frame.
Hooked a coat hanger in my eye when I was about 4, can only presume I was dancing around with it,probably using it as a mic.

I'd had the wooden floors polished in my old house (including my bedroom) and had to have all the windows open because something they used absolutely reeked.
The house had a really strange layout and my bedroom was the size of the whole of the downstairs, really, really long!
The room had been previously used as a self-contained flat (without cooking facilities.)
This is relevant.

It was November and absolutely freezing, so I went to get some fluffy socks from one side of the bedroom (you can see where this is going), put them on, took one step and went arse over tit skidding from one side of the room to the other on my backside.
Both cheeks were black for weeks.

I fell down an open manhole cover. Bruised and battered for a week. It wasn't as funny as you'd think it would be!!

At the moment I'm nursing some horrible bruising from trying to master a unicycle that was bought for me as a Christmas present. I'm rubbish (and I thought a fifty year old could master new ricks) and close to giving up.

At about age 10 with hair down to my bum, I decided to see what would happen if I dangled some it into the electric food mixer thing, while helping to make a cake.

It was not a good idea shockgrin To this day I have no idea what possessed me.

I was standing on a bed showing my partner my ski technique (have never skied in my life and am also dyspraxic) he was copying me and we both fell over each other. He ended up giving me a black eye by sticking his elbow in my face

Black eye sustained when my dog punched me in the face with her mahoosive paw while I was tickling her belly

A few years ago I slipped down one step and completely snapped a metortarsal (sp?) in my foot. The worse thing was it was the first day of the summer holidays and I had 3 dc under 10. I couldn't drive and we had a caravan holiday booked and lots of day trips. Was a tough 6 weeks!

When I was about fifteen, I was walking to school and a car came speeding round the corner and missed full on hitting me by literal centimetres, my arm hit the car quite hard but I was fine. I was so shaken about how close a call that was, I then didn't pay attention to where I was walking, tripped on the curb and smashed my other elbow into smithereens 😂

The back of my leg somehow managed to stick to the varnished wooden chair I was sitting on and when I pulled it away I ripped a layer of skin off and it was red raw and bruised for weeks!

Then there was the black eye from walking into a glass door. I had that corker for nearly a month blush

My cat and dog were fighting and crashed into me, busting my lip.

I broke a couple of ribs digging up the garden.

A tiny spider bit me (UK) and I couldn't walk for several days because my leg doubled in size. 🕷 Apparently I'm allergic to spiders! 🕷

My toe was so badly infected and had a huge hole in it because of my two year old. He simply stepped on it everyday for weeks and the trauma caused a serious infection.

Somehow fell head first down a flight of stairs at a doctors surgery. No one saw but everyone heard the massive crash.
They all ran to help - I picked myself up assured them I was fine and walked to my car.

Spent 1/2 hour crying in my car it hurt that fucking much. Every part of me was bruised, it took 2 months for the bruises to go.

gobblers shock you bloody idiot grin

I hit myself over the head with my own hockey stick once in primary school, I slipped mid practice in a muddy puddle and chucked the stick away to free my hands to catch myself and somehow managed to through it straight up where it somersaulted and came back down onto my head... ouch. Didn't help that the teacher was trying desperately to not laugh whilst checking if I was ok.

This is probably a bit outing and to be fair I didn't actually damage myself but it did hurt and it was ridiculous.

Trying to wax my lady moustache but not having the right technique

I managed to sprain my little and ring fingers trying to flush one of those button flush toilets.

My grip still isn't right after three weeks....

Total rupture of Achilles in plaster for almost 4 months

Celebrating having cast off with a few Vinos....tripped over my newly acquired air cast boot which was propped up in kitchen....and broke my toe....sad

When I was a student nurse I once managed to jab a big intramuscular injection needle through the nailbed of my thumb instead of the patient's bottom.

I once tore all the ligaments in my neck and across my shoulders just zipping up a tight pair of jeans.
