When I was a freshman at soccer practice, I dislocated my knee cap. Hyper extended the muscles/ligaments/tendons around the area. But I'm not a little bitch and I popped it back into place on the field. I'll admit I did that on accident though. 😂 My knee still bothers me today and it feels like someone is wedging a knife in there when there's a storm and the air pressure changes.
What's the worst injury you've ever gotten?
And also, have you ever had to see a doctor for an injury and they ask how bad the pain is from 1-10 and you have no idea what to say because you don't know what 10 feels like? I have a high pain tolerance. I've never said anything above 7 lmao. And I'd feel like a dramatic little baby if I said 10.
I got cellulitus in a really small cut, and it got bad. And it became an open sore, and the doctor took a sample with a swab that was just the smallest amount of cotton on a hard plastic stick. And she had to open the wound further. She did it twice, and I was shaking after she did it. How about you?

Worst injury I've ever gotten was during track. The track went around a soccer/football field, so while the track runners ran, my school's horrible soccer team practiced. While I was running with my teammates, we got into some weird discussion about how it'd be difficult to break a bone in track.
Shortly after, I was running and a soccer ball went outside the field in the middle from the soccer team's practice. My friend decided he was going to kick it back to them and be friendly (I was still running). He kicked the ball, it landed under my feet as I was running, and I tripped and broke my wrist. Oh, the irony :/
I totally pokerfaced through it, kind of like "Oh, I'm sure it is nothing ice won't fix. It's just a sprang" but every time anything touched my wrist, intense pain shot up my the bone of my arm. I never want to feel that weird feeling again-- it's like the inside of your arm just got zapped.
That and the surgery afterword were awful experiences. I still tried to play drums with a cast on but it got really difficult. The night out of surgery was the only night I've ever spent without any sleep, awake from throbbing wrist pain and the bone of my arm still having that weird zappy feeling. D:1

When I was 10 I was riding a horse (I'm a pretty natural rider) and the horse I was on decided to show off to his girlfriend who was the only other horse in the arena. He suddenly sidestepped mid canter and immediately took off over a fence. I had never jumped before, I was still nailing cantering. Anyway, the combination made me lose balance and I fell off. Unfortunately, I landed on the jump on the small of my back and I bent myself backwards over the pole. I was paralysed for a week and a half. I couldn't even lift my arms above my waist.
Other than that... I broke my wrist and a year later had to have exploratory surgery. Turned out there was a small bone fragment irritating my bones and had to have it removed.1
