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 achieved a spectacularly middle class injury at a friend’s house. I was twatting around in her kitchen and slipped on a boden parcel that had been left on the floor. I smacked my arm on the Aga, leaving myself with a dislocated elbow and black bruising from shoulder to wrist.

Outing...Pokemon go....walked into a tree at speed in the very dark park nipping to the poke stop on way home from pub. Grazed all my face, and was a bit concussed. Took ages to heal blush

I did the bead thing at about 5 too.

Not me but my carer - not sure if this is ridiculous or ...

OK he was opening champagne with a sword and the glass curled into the air and landed on his forehead - he was left with a Harry Potter scar for ages.

For anyone who hasn't opened champagne (wow that sounds twatish) with a sword you don't uncork it, the top of the bottle flies of with the cork still in situ.

I've only ever broken 2 bones. Both were toes broken in Cornwall.

Black eye from being punched in face by Bearded Collie while administering belly rub

Too many to type out, but my favourite choice few are below:

Most recently, sneezed and gave myself a herniated disc in my lumbar spine, felt like a total knob explaining that one!

Laid on the sofa next to my dog, someone slammed a car door shut nearby and for some inexplicable reason the sodding dog bit me on the nose in fright! Still have a huge crescent scar on my nose!

Tripped over the leg of my overalls at work descending some metal stairs whilst doing a risk assessment! Grazed or bruised nearly every part of my body, and gave myself a black eye with my clipboard grin still not lived that down, don’t think I ever will.

I had a blister in my sinus that caused such bad headaches they MRI scanned me to look for a brain tumour.

I slept funny once and pinched a nerve in my shoulder that was so painful I thought I'd broken my neck. I've done it a few times since; honestly it's so painful it wakes me in the night and takes my breath away, I wake up feeling like my lungs have burst. Tad dramatic

Multiple babies have head butted me, left me with black eyes and bruises.

Broke three toes stepping off the pavement to cross the road. While sober, and wearing trainers.

Broke 2 ribs and got a carpet burn on my right leg from toe to hip when I fell down stairs while putting up new curtains at the landing window. The carpet burn was almost as painful as the ribs, I basically skinned the outside half of my leg.

Dropped a box file on my face when getting it down from a shelf and broke my nose.

Lots more, I am super clumsy. DD unfortunately takes after me.

Also took off a hand sized patch of skin off my forearm when I knocked over the electric steam inhaler onto my arm when I had the flu. It took me a couple of minutes to register what had happened, and stagger to the bathroom to get cold water on it. The skin sort of slid off like jelly, it was truly disgusting. Hydrocolloid dressings are great inventions though, it healed up really quickly and I have no visible scar at all.

I tripped in my heels on the way down a steep path to the tube and broke my finger and ripped up my tights and knees. I was judging some awards so had to keep going - to a pharmacy to get some huge plasters and new tights. My knees hurt like hell.

But it took me two weeks to go to the clinic to have my finger checked. It was very painful. I had to wear a bandage and finger guard and have physio.
