  • When I was 17 I was in a really bad car accident. I had bleeding in the brain, crushed nerves at the base of my skull, broke bones. I was in a coma for over a week and in a wheelchair for almost a year.

  • A dislocating knee cap-- I did have surgery on it but that did not help as it still dislocates sometimes. The doctor says I should have that knee reconstructed, but I am putting that surgery off for as long as I possibly can.

  • I'd have to say when I busted my foot open slipping on a wet floor, had a few stitches. It wasnt that bad, but its worst I've endured

  • Worst injury I guess was a broken arm while doing a front handspring that went horribly wrong when I was in 4th grade at cheerleading practice.
    Worst illness was 5 years ago, I had an incarcerated hernia/small bowel obstruction and had to have emergency surgery. I was bleeding internally and was told if I had gotten to the hospital even 15 minutes later I would not have survived. I was only 30 years old.

  • My knee. I tore my meniscus, ACL, and a chunk of cartiledge off the back of my kneecap, plus bruised the bone all at the same time. I slipped on my dress dancing at our wedding reception. The doctor put me on crutches, into a brace, and into PT. Eventually I will have to have surgery, but we're putting it off as long as possible. I still wear the brace a lot of the time, or else it falls out of place or buckles very easily. It's been 2.5 years since it happened.

  • I had a broken jaw.  it wasn't the most painful experience I had but it was tough sucking apple sauce through a straw for 6 weeks when everyone else was eating BBQ steak and corn on the cob.

  • either breaking my arm or getting a big gash on my head. the first was from falling out of a tree, the second from a car accident.
