as a result of martial arts, i have recurring knee and leg injuries:
  • torn my harmstring a few times
  • rolled ankle
  • hyperextended my left knee
  • torn a muscle or ligament close to the knee
  • tendon problems of both knees & right elbow
  • almost tore my right pectoral muscle
  • lower back problems

and to top that off, i've jarred every finger over the years due to ball sports

I sprained my wrist 2wks ago just when i landed back in Australia from my 3wk holiday in NZ. I went to lift my backpack from the baggage carousel, but it only weighed 15kg, lighter than i started off with, but it was due to that repitive lifting it weirdly.
So yeah doc told me to take 2wks as light duties at work, and when i rang work, they said i cant work, coz being a nurse there aint light duties. Id have to be able to do CPR and stuff....so eyah had to take 2wks off as annual leave so i was bored as shit! Went to byron for one night, so yeh.....

I just got weak wrists. lol. I still cant put weight through my hands whcih is strange..

broke my first bone early last year, trying to grab basketball hoop, just git it but slipped off and broke my wrist <---- i didnt want it to be broken so i tried pushing it back in place... didnt work but i think i made it worse because it still hasnt fully healed

and early this year i had a head clash in a soccer game and split my head open, i got 5 stitches

Ive pulled every single muscle in my back, as well as my shoulder muscles, neck and hamstrings/quads in one huge rowing stroke. Needless to say my spine is now out of place and i couldn't walk for 4 weeks. I'm never rowing again, *the injury was caused by bad posture caused by rowing*, and i'm basically permanently damaged. Maybe i should sue my school for negligence.

No injuries and breakages so far in my life, however i have had illnesses and little sprained ankle, but nothing too disabling...

pneumonia at age 11
hyperthyroidism during high school (that got taken out at the beginning of year 11).
some colds and flus.
mild scoliosis (thoracic)...noticed that at the same time as i got pneumonia...
a few mild sprained ankles...
