    I broke an arm when I was about four years old. It happened while rough-housing with my oldest brother (nine years older) – even as a preschooler, I knew something was wrong when nothing made it feel better, unlike with most injuries. I don’t remember which arm it was.

    Oh, and I probably broke a toe around my seventeenth birthday. It’s kinda crooked since I never treated it.

    @Pinkmoon:  Add an option for those of us who have never broken a bone, please.

    My arm. I was 9 and dumb. I raced my friend up a slide that had sand on it.

    I broke my arm when I was in 1st grade falling off a jungle gym when another kid stepped on my hands.  Didn’t want to tell anyone that I was hurt so I kept going to the washroom and putting cold rags on it.  Finally, my teacher noticed that I couldn’t write to finish my assignment in class.  

    I broke my leg (tibia) falling off the crossing bars at recess in 4th grade and was in a cast for 3 months. 

    As an adult, I’ve broken my nose, my tail bone, my foot, my toe, and a rib. 

    I was a dancer.  Apparently, a klutzy one.  And maybe I should drink more milk.

    The only broken bone I’ve had happened when I was a baby. Somehow I had a broken collar bone as a baby but no one knew until I was much older

    *sigh*  Last year the answer would have been no.  And then I shattered my elbow while trying wedding dresses on.   Of all the ways! 

    I had to have surgery to rebuilding my elbow, and they had to break another bone to get in and fix the damage!  And now I have this lovely scar:

    I’ve only ever broken a toe, it was my second toe and I broke it falling down the stairs. I taped it against the toe next to it for a brace and limped around for a few days. Then I went to the doctor and she just told me to tape it to the toe next to it and wait for it to heal, lol.

    Knocking on wood here – I haven’t broken anything so far (22, 23 in less than a month).

    Why must my broken pinky toe be thrown in with the ankles and legs?  I never had the perks of a broken bone like a cast for either attention, a cool story, or an explanation as to why I was walking so incredibly slowly… just had to tape it to my foot and soldier on.  My only exciting injury minimized again. 🙁

    @sarahbabs:  oh my god.


    I fractured my wrist when I was in first grade…we used to play on this hill at my neighbor’s house (actually my best friend and maid of honor, but hey) and I landed on my wrist in a weird way.  I cried and ran to her mom, and was like, “I think my wrist is broken!” but her mom didn’t think so, gave me a popsicle, and that was enough…I didn’t care about my wrist anymore (I was a fat little kid!).  Later that day we were climbing on the roofs behind our houses and I couldn’t get down because I couldn’t put pressure on my wrist.  So we all got in trouble AND I had to go to the doctor.  It wasn’t broken badly…just a bit.

    @hiroshymatetrastar:  What? Wow.


    I broke my wrist when I was 10.  I’ve broke several toes and my left ring finger.
