What was the worst injury you ever had as a kid?

When I was a kid, I touched the hot part of a gas heater and got 3rd degree burns.

Fingers got slammed in a metal fire door at school when I was in the 4th or 5th grade, then a few years later I got tripped and broke my arm, other than that I was born almost 2 months premature so I had a host of issues there.

^^ fingers slammed in door too. Lost the top of one of my fingers and two others were cut to the bone but surgeons saved them.

Really only had two injuries as a kid, i buckle fractured my wrist and needed stiches on my toes.

 

I was coming home from the community pool, still a tad wet and not wearing shoes/sandals while riding a beach cruiser. Foot slipped, went into the spokes and chewed up my big toe and a few others. That one sucked because summer was just around the corner and I couldnt swim for most of it.

Went over the top of my bicycle handlebars as a kid, I think I was 10 years old, but I chipped the corner off one of my front teeth when my face met the curb (sidewalk) it hurt like a MF! and for a time I had a silver cap over the tooth, later had reconstruction done and you can't tell I am missing the corner :p

When I was about 2 I picked up a hot iron, and scalded my hand. I have no memory of it, but my mum told me about it. Other than that, nothing physical. I had an ingrowing toenail for a while when i was about 13 or 14, but that's not major. Oh, and a 240v shock when I accidentally touched a transformer in an old record player I'd cracked open.

I was a mess of a kid. Notable accidents I recall:

 

- Playing tag during a local festival, I climbed onto a tractor trailer and fell while coming down, hitting my head on a nearby rock. There was blood.

- Playing hide and seek at a friend's birthday party, I was standing near a wall and a friend run into me at way too high of a speed and I hit my head on the wall. There was blood again
- Not long after this, my cousin and I were playing around with a bicycle wheel for some reason, and he threw it towards me and the metal thing on the side hit me on the head. More blood.

- Probably the most notable one though was when I was climbing a tree, which I did a lot for fun. My grandma yelled at me to get down from there immediately, and being the obedient kid I was, I fell down. Nothing broke, but my knee was very messed up and I got a cast on my leg and had to walk with a crutch for a while. A few weeks into the recovery I was swimming at a pool and one other kid pushed their leg on my knee when they tried to propel themselves forward and it undid a lot of that recovery.

- Another notable one: I was riding my bike down a mountain trail with lots of rocks and stuff, completely unprotected. A big rock must have come up as the bike flipped over and I feel pretty hard. The damage wasn't too bad considering, but my knee bled a lot and it took weeks for the wound to heal. I had a scar for years after that, too, but I think it's not noticeable now.

Got a pretty nasty cut down the bone on the top of my right hand when I was 10 .. playing a game of UNO.   UNO was a bloody game back in the 80s.

(Actually kids outside were playing kick ball, the ball hit and broke a glass window that was up near the roof .... the broken glass came down and sliced my hand while I was playing UNO)

 

Other than that...nothing but the usual scrapes and bruises.

This reminds me of another injury I had when I was younger than 10, can't remember how old but for some reason I was playing catch with a broken glass bottle of lemonade with my cousin and I managed to slash the top of my index finger pretty bad which resulted in a pretty nasty thick scar.

 

Another one, at the same cousin's house I was swinging off the washing line and it snapped because it couldn't hold me, smacked my head on the crazy paving and I have a nice scar on the back of my head where hair doesn't grow 😛 I remember also hitting my head as we got in the car to go to the hospital Lol.

I was born with epilepsy and I constantly was busting my head open from seizures.

Thankfully, I grew out of it.
