Thoughtful Thursday #12 – Worst Injury

What is the worst injury you have ever sustained?

Expecting a gory tale with multiple fractures and a prolonged recovery process?  Sorry to disappoint.  Broken Bones = 0, Stitches = 0, Concussions = probably 0, although I did fall off the back of a chair sometime before my 2nd birthday and “crack my head open” (Yep, that explains a lot!)  I have, however, despite my very moderate inclination towards physical exercise had 2 or 3 bouts of annoying tendonitis.  Not worth writing about – mild chronic pain is not amusing but it is also not a tale worth telling, unless you want to provide context to a fellow sufferer.    Broken hearts ? = 1, or maybe 1.5, again not exciting, educational but not exciting.  Injured pride = Oh yes, too many times to count.  Sometime after age 45 – 50, in my case at least, one’s pride has toughened to the point where it does not injure too often any longer.

So have I lived a charmed life?  On the physical injury side you might think so.  I am inclined to believe it is more the result of much caution and the law of averages.  Limit your risk taking and you reduce the chance of injury.
