In terms of diagnosable stuff:

familial hyper-cholesterolemia - abnormally high cholesterol levels NOT associated with diet, but rather associated with dna, passed on by my lovely father
hypotension - low blood pressure 24/7
my eyes are larger than most - the pupil is too big and thus half of my vision is blurred.

Random other stuff:
Broken baby toe on my left foot 3 times at different times!
Broke my 4 metatarcils on the left foot

I've had numerous sprained ankles and wrists from when i was an adventurous little tyke, mostly trampoline related
i broke my hip when i was 11 from falling of the second floor level of a building (really long story). because i was still growing when it also knocked my pelvis and any other bones out of whack and made my back grow retarded, as a result it now affects my knees, cos i put all my weight onto one leg cos my back is gay and the knee that never gets used plays up sometimes. Running especially bothers it. and i have mild lower back pain that im meant to do physio for. if only i never climbed that ladder!
i broke a rib when i was 19 from falling out of a bed.
about 6 months ago i tripped over on my own foot on a slippery floor at work backwards and hit my head, giving myself both a concussion and whiplash, from which I'm STILL recovering and i had to take about 10 weeks off from going to the gym when that happened too.
oh and i fell out of a canoe when i was drunk in new caledonia and did something to my ankle, cant remember. i was on crutches for the remainder of my schoolies cruise though!

ahah this thread is wack.
muddy soccer pitch. going full pelt from beyond halfway back into the penalty area. got to the ball, kicked it. foot got stuck in aforementioned mud. twisted. acl = dead.
then I'm lying in mud, with everyone looking at me like im retarded. I start to laugh, and hobble by myself about 5m before falling over, at which point someone helps me off.
lol.

i'm sure i can beat most of you in straight-out retardedness .. i was playing netball, went to shoot a goal from like right under the net, the ball bounced straight back off the bottom of the ring and smacked me in the face, and it broke my nose. all my friends laughed at me, and i was crying and laughing so hard at the same time i thought i was going to choke and die :eek:

Wow... craziness!!!!

In light of this thread, today i dislocated my hip again.... damn dancing.... grr... it was ok.... a few painkillers.. quick visit to emergency.. which actually was quick... and its all good... crutches for a weekish and should be fine... it really isnt helping with the whole 'getting back into dancing, due to no more injuries thing'

the test doens't take that long.. they either poke your eye or puff your eye.
