 I broke my big toe when I dropped a metal cage door on it when I was a teenager. 

When i was 18 I broke my nose. I tripped over my foot on one little step hit a metal flower pot and slammed my face into the deck. I actually knocked myself out.

When I was pregnant I fell down some steps and broke a bone in my ankle. How I walked away with just a broken ankle is beyond me. Because I put my hands out to try not to land on my stomach.

A few years ago, I walked into a hand weight someone left on the floor and broke 3 toes. So I have now broken every toe but one on that foot.

Oh, and I fractured my pinky when it got shut in a car door.

I've broken all my toes multiple times. Don't remember how each time, this last time was kicking the end of the bed in the middle of the night trying to get back to bed after going to the bathromm.

When I was 7 I broke my right forearm "skating" on bubble solution.

I've broken my nose twice. The first time when I was about ten, my sister put her knee in it full force. The second time a ball was thrown at me and my face caught it.

I broke both wrists being a stupid teenager and jumping on the trunk of my friends car and she took off and I slid off.

And lastly I broke my right ankle when my foot rolled and I fell. Damn MS :-(

I broke my right elbow when I was 5. I was skating in the house, fell, and hit my elbow on a piece of wood.

My right ankle right before I turned 8. I was pushed off a trampoline at a birthday party and fell between the springs, landing on my ankle wrong. The mom was an EMT and instead of looking at it, just shamed me and told me to walk on it. I had to be carried home (3 houses down) bc I couldn't walk. When we went to the hospital, they couldn't see the break (bc stupid bitch told me to walk on it) and sent me home saying it was sprained. 3 yrs later, I was taken into surgery to have a bone chip removed that was cutting through my nerves in my foot. I have very little feeling in that foot and from the age of 10 till 18, I was in the hospital almost once a year bc I would fall and could not tell if it was broken or not. There's a good possiblity that I've broken it at least once in the 15 yrs since the initial break.

My nose was fractured with I was about 13. My dad and I were play fighting and I was on the floor, grabbed his leg and he stumbled, stepping on my face.

I've broken a few bones in my hands. Most of them from stupid things like falling, punching walls, etc. Also broken a few toes kicking things.

I've also dislocated multiple joints (shoulder, knee, tailbone, and a couple fingers), had 3 mild concussions, and a severe case of whiplash which has caused my spine was a strange curve. Like my spine in my neck is like its supposed to be, then jerks to the side then is straight down again. -.- I'm actually very accident prone and most of these injuries are either from sheer stupidity or falling. Lol.
