We all have one or a few physical scars that we rack up over our lives either through sport, accident, injury, surgery, or perhaps even self inflicted. Do you have a scar story to share?
I have a couple scars, but there are two that are the most memorable. One is more of a collection of scars. You can see on both my elbows large patches of skin that were shredded off and now are patched over and several scrapes on both knees because when I was in elementary my dad told me not to wear my jacket about the waist b/c I might trip annnnd he was right. I was running along the concrete sidewalk, tripped on one of the jacket sleeves and ate it hard on the pavement. I tripped, bounced, and slid down the pavement scraping up everything along the way. Everything was bleeding and I had about 5 bandages by the time the nurse got done with me. The second is a cleaning injury. I had for some reason decided the best way to clean my room was to dump everything on the floor and start from scratch, so there I was in a piles and piles of junk and clothes and papers everywhere. I sat down to start tackling the storting of clothes and getting rid of old dry cleaning hangers when I stood up to hang something up, one of the old twisted hangers somehow caught me on the thigh and ripped straight down leaving me with a 3 inch long flat scar on my thigh. No more wire hangers EVER!

I was in a boat out in the middle of the lake and there were some very large waves, 2 m plus.
Anyway, some of my equipment came loose at the front of the boat due to it slamming down hard from the waves.
I crawled up to secure it so I did not lose any of the expensive equipment, and we hit a very large wave, which literally through me into the front deck of the boat.
I was unconscious for a minute or so and woke up, secured the equipment and crawled back to the back of the boat. The whole time holding my head. When I pulled my hand away, the blood flowed down through both my eyes.
I took my shirt off and held it to the wound and waited to get to shore. Once I arrived on shore the bleeding would not stop, so I got out the first aid kit. The nearest doctors/emerg was five hours away by boat and car, so I ended up having someone hold a mirror while I sewed my own 3 inch gash shut. I could lift up the flap and see my skull bone. I put in five stiches myself and used ster-strips to seal it.
I finished off my days work on the island handling poisonous snakes, kept it clean and went to see the doctor the following day when I got back. He was impressed with my handy work. I virtually have no scar because of how well I stitched it and it was along the crease in my forehead.
Needless to say it was the most painful experience I have ever had!0
