Last winter. Slipped on a slippery hill the tree branch punctured my face. I had my face glued together-close call 1 eye Willey... 2 days later I showed a Santa Cruz home.  One could not tell the difference today.

You mean REAL, have to go the (#@%$#) doctor injury?
Age 17 . . .
The worst recent injury was when I tripped on the dog and bruised my tailbone 2 years ago . . . but I go to the chiro every 2 weeks and have acupuncture a few times a year, so the abuse I heap on myself thinking I'm bionic is somewhat mitigated.

Knees are a big deal.  The moment you tweak you have to stop.  I did that a month ago, and worked with my acupuncturist.  It was miraculous, that and rubbing ARNICA on both knees.  I was fine in less than two weeks.

A broken arm that my doctor insisted was just soft tissue damage.  It was a long painful rehab to get my arm "unbroken" and working right again.  I should have sued his a$$.  

Hope your knee gets better soon, Nathan!

Sorry to hear that, Nathan. Hopefully it's nothing too serious and you'll be in the pink soon. My latest injury was about a year ago when I missed a couple of steps in my garage and took a tumble onto the concrete floor. Luckily didn't crack my head or anything else, but badly sprained my ankle which blew up double its normal size in about 40 seconds. It was black and blue for months.

Depends on how you define injury. I have only had one injury surgery in my lifetime, but probably cancer in 2008 was my last one where surgery was required.

3 years ago, I broke my foot.  That wasn't fun as I couldn't walk nor drive. I blogged about it on here.  I did, however, have some really good things that came out of it, including a better diet (thanks to my mom) w/ more protein that really helped my autoimmune disease and so did the extra calcium/Vit D pills, so I continue that now.  And, I did a lot of blogging and marketing from my bed as I was healing so that helped a lot.  And, of course a different perspective on things and helping others.

Got rear-ended by a drunk driver who just broke up with a girlfriend. I was sitting at a stop light waiting for the light to turn green.  BAM!  According to the witnesses, the guy was going over 75 mph!

 

Worst part? He was able to take off (hit and run) ... but then had two (2) -- yes I said two (2) -- more Hit and Runs before he got arrested while driving into his driveway -- Thanks to one of my witnesses who used his cell phone and took a picture of the vehicle and license plate and gave to the police.

I developed over the years a big toe issue and had surgery on it 3 years ago. The surgery was a temporary fix, but the foot is starting to bother me again. I also had a cronic injury in my arms due to my fitness classes I teach. During my 3 month rest while my foot was recovering after the surgery, the cronic arm issue got better!

I was helping my son install ceiling fans in his new condo.  Got my arm stuck in a 4" hole trying to fish a wire.  While trying to get my arm out, the ladder slipped out from under me.  I came crashing down on the ladder.  Fortunately, my arm came out without any damage.

A trip to the emergency room revealed only bruised ribs and thigh.

We did get the fans working.

Nathan Gesner Nothing recent. A while back I was sparing with someone in a Okinawan Dojo and delivered a death defying blow to his mid section when he blocked it and killed my little toe. The first time up to then and since that I had broken a bone. Luckly we both lived to tell this story.
