What’s the worse injury has someone had?

I’ve not broken yet (touch wood) plenty of black eyes from falling face onto bathroom sink or kitchen side. Cut knees when I’m out n my legs give up and I fall to them. Bruises on legs, arms. Kicked small toe up. Cuts to fingers when preparing food. Wots next I wonder………??

My usual is to open the door without getting my foot out of the way quickly enough… I am usually bare feet at home and when I do it it bloody well hurts!
I have done it so many times I’ve lost count

Last year ( when I was a bit more mobile) I was stood on the chest freezer, with a 2 gallon tub of wallop painting the ceiling, tripped up and fell off, thought I had broken the leg, but it was just so badly bashed and bruised, still got a bruise 10 months later, as the doc says had I been 18 instead on 61 the bruise would have gone within a couple of weeks. Took me 6 months to clean the paint off the floor, good thing it wasn’t gloss!😘

Prior to diagnosis I had a fall where I fractured my knee, not nice at all, even managed to do the splits as I hit the pavement, nice.

My mum had a really nasty fall a few years ago. She fell in her bedroom onto the bed post and fractured her sternum.
Very very painful indeed. We’ve since made her bedroom a bit more fall friendly if you know what I mean.

I think that since my diagnosis I have become more risk and falls aware, because since then I have had only minor small bruises.
Before, multiple fractured ribs, fractured skull, grade 3acj injury, broken wrists, internal injuries, I have an unstable pelvis due to a fall, shattered teeth, broken nose, every single toe has been broken at some point.. .. all due to my HORSES !!!!
