Geez, this thread makes me hurt just reading it D: xD
I've never bruised a bone...as far as I know....but one fall while horseback riding led to me straining some sort of major tendon or something in my right shoulder. Couldn't move my right arm for a over a week and don't even get me STARTED on sleeping on that side....
The next fall I had I did something to my right ribcage....I landed funny on the hardest part of the arena, I think I jammed my elbow into my ribs or something and damaged the tissue. It hurt like HECK forever
! It still pains me to this day, and its probably been....oh, a couple years since then. Goodness forbid I turn juuuuust the wrong way in my sleep, or twist or stretch weird....it hurts pretty bad for a couple days at least. The shoulder sometimes bugs me too as well, but not as bad, or as often.
Another random story I thought I might add....this past summer, ON my 18th birthday(Happy 18th!), I was taking Roary(who was but a few weeks old, my little birthday present)out to go to the bathroom at 2 AM. I usually wait a little bit after turning on the outside lights(we live out in the middle of nowhere), but I just wanted to get back to sleep, so I didn't this time and headed outside. Well about halfway across the driveway to the side yard, I hear something and freeze(still holding puppy). The ferns at the edge of the forest on our property start to move.....and OUT POP AN ANGRY HERD OF RABID SMURFS!!(JK
The bushes did move though, but we wrote it off as a raccoon, which poke around once in a while. But I like the idea of rabid smurfs attacking better) Turning abruptly, I made for the house, but I tripped on my loose sandals in my haste and fell on the concrete, still holding little Roary, but I stuck out my free arm to catch myself, determined to keep her from getting hurt. At that point I panicked, screamed, got back up, and ran inside just as dad ran out with a large stick to beat back the smurfs.
Roary was perfectly fine and safe, but I had torn my favorite Eeyore PJs, scraped up both my knees and my left hand pretty good.
I still have scars from the indecent, over 6 months ago, and my right knee still hurts occasionally.
