Gnarliest Injury

Fucking hell I don’t think I’ve finished reading one of these posts. So grim.

Once rode my large trike (aged about 7) into a prickly bush. Got some prickles on my arm

I did this nearly 40 years ago now, climbing up the side rather than the ladder bit of a rusty slide in our back garden. Turns out the aren’t so stable if the weight is distributed like that and it came crashing down on me. I nearly lost my eye and my skull was visible. More than a dozen stitches, back in the days before stitches dissolve.
