Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

  • What is your worst injury you've ever gotten?

    I am trying to think of games so here is one! Write the worst injury you have ever gotten and when people are done I will judge who has bragging rights for the best injury.

    I think mine is when I was working in the kitchen and I hear my baby start making weird coughing sounds in my room. So I ran to the bedroom but slid and my toes went right under the door crack. My big toenail came off diagonally right through the nail. How gross is that! lol. Worst pain ever..... Ok so now what is your worst injury ever? This also gives us a chance to use the gross smilies!

    car accident, january 1, 2008

    drunk driver got me head on. i understand i should not be alive right now

    it shattered my right leg. i have a rod, a plate and about 8 screws and pins in there now.
    i spent a week at the hospital- morphine is a blessing when used right

    it still bothers me hugely. it feels like i barked my shin on a coffee table all the time and sometimes its way worse. but i just try to get through the day.

    it gave me a concussion and bruised my kidneys. i was a huge bruise from collarbone to my toes from the seatbelt and the impact. it was kinda fascinating really- i was heavily medicated so things that really weren't so funny were able to seem it. watching the bruise fade was like watching a giant mood ring cool down

    i needed to use a walker for months after, then crutches for further months and now i use a canuckistanian crutch- but leaning on a shopping cart heavily or using my kiddo's stroller is like using a walker without having to actually use one!

    so that, thank God, is the worst injurious thing that has ever happened to me and its definitely not the worst thing anyone ever went through.

    i did, however drop a can of spaghetti sauce on my 'good' foot a while ago. i think the roof literally separated from the house when i screeched over that.

      Well my worst was when I crushed my t-12 vertebre when my youngest was 3 months old. I went sleding for the first time ever and I went down the same path all the kids had been going down, well at the bottom of the hill was an over turned log that no one saw under the snow, but me weighing alot more than the kids hit that log the snow impacted and it shot me up in the air and I landed bottom first on the frozen pond bellow. I had the worst ambulance ride to the hospital only to then get into life flight to go to another hospital. I was so mad that my first helicopter ride I couldn't jump out of it. I so want to jump oout of a helicopter. Any ways, I don't remember much what happend at the hospital the first few days I was there but I do remember being in the trama ward in one of those neck braces and couldn't move and I felt very sick and I and it was all over me and I called the nurse to tell her but no one cleaned me up untill much later after I was more aware and in another room. I have no idea how long it was but atleast a day or so. The worst part was they had to cut off my favorite jacket and I have not been able to find another one. I hate my winter coat now, but atleast it is as warm.

      DH's worst injury might make the men run....he did something in basic training to the nerve that runs from his unmentionables down his leg and has had to have surgery on them. He has constant pain from it and as he gets older it is getting harder and harder for him to walk.

      The most amazing thing is we both have a few thousand skydives under our belts and no horriable injuries to report from that. I have torn my meniscus from a dust devil that caught my canopy and tossed me down 50ft and DH has hit the pond pretty hard when he was swooping and broke some bones, but that is about it.

        haha, thats funny cause its one of the things i am still mad about myself. i never wear jackets- even in some of the worst cold days, but i finally broke down and bought myself a really nice one that year. and i spent more than $70 on it (usually a nice LLBean flannel gets me through the winter at around $25-$40) i'm cheap. So the first REAL coat i buy myself in 20 years has to be cut off me
        aLso, when they loaded me into the ambulance i had a franc n mu pocket that i had found the day before, it fell out and i heard it roll under the equipment. that bugged me too.
        anyway, its funny what we choose to get annoyed with when these things happen!

          I haven't really ever been injured but I've had quite a bit of surgery, so I'll use that as my injury. Anyhoo, two years ago in summer (I think the end of July) I had some pretty bad pain in my right side. Also, whenever I would bend over and stand back up it felt like something was moving inside my chest. I had an x-ray at the doctor's office and went home. Shortly after, my mom had to leave work to come take me to the hospital because my right lung had partially collapsed. Apparently there are tiny air-filled blisters on our lungs called "blebs" and when they pop (which usually happens to tall, thin people (like myself) because they don't get much blood flow to them) air leaks out of the lung and into the chest cavity. It's like a balloon deflating in a box. Luckily it was a partial collapse so it wasn't an emergency, but they still did surgery right away so it didn't collapse more (and to prevent it from happening again).

          The surgery went well and after spending a few days in the hospital with a tube coming out of my chest cavity (it's truly a weird feeling when a tube comes out of your chest cavity ) I went home and recovered nicely.

          Fast forward to the summer of 2010. This time, a few days before school ended, my LEFT lung partially collapsed and they had to do emergency surgery again. And actually, I was having some pain last Friday so I went in to have an x-ray. My regular doctor said everything looked fine but we wouldn't be 100% sure until the specialists looked at it. Well, my doctor called me at 9:30 that evening to tell me that my left lung partially collapsed again just a little (like 1%). Now, it's okay because the surgery prevents it from completely collapsing but I still need to go for an x-ray next week.

          Good thing humans don't have three lungs or else that one would probably collapse on me too.

                The trick is to just *have enough chocolate*

                Actually I do have an injury I suffered when I was 13...... a dog bit me in the face. I lived in *tiny town* Canada and we had no hospital, and the only ambulance was already in use. So after the town doctor wrapped my face and shot me full of sedative my dad and uncle drove me 3 hours to the nearest city hospital in a logging crummy (it's basically a heavy pick up truck with a crew cab). I don't remember much about the trip but I do remember the flurry of activity once we got to the ER. They called in a plastic surgeon, put me to sleep and I woke up later with my face swollen beyond recognition, eyes black and blue, and 120 stitches in my face. Oh, and I had packing *in* my nose, a plaster cast *on* my nose (because it was crushed) and almost lost my right eye. Stayed in the hospital for 10 days, but it took a full year for all the swelling to finally cease and the scars to start disappearing. But the doc did a wonderful job, a few years later you couldn't tell it even happened.

                ps.... yes, I am afraid of dogs!

                    Yep. I actually found that jacket at a second hand store. It still had the tags on it. It was pink and black, my favorite colors and was two jackets that zipped together to make one warm jacket, or you could unzip them and wear them bythemselves. I got it for about $5 and the origanial cost was $120 according to the tag. The one I have now is two jackets too but both are all black. I got it at Walmart and well the feathers from the innerjacket pokes out and they hurt, but I have to wear them. Although this winter isn't too bad this year, so far.

                    Oh I forgot the major one thing that hurt me the most about my acciedent. I had to stop breastfeeding my DD. I breastfeed all my kids and this hurt me terrriablly. I got really REALLY depressed over it. Plus I had no idea how expensive formula is WOW!!!

                      Some of yall have heard my story, but here it is. I was 3 months pregnant. Walked into a building and the floor was wet, slid and fell against a wall. Went to the doctor. She told me that my sciatica nerve was irritated and that since the pain was so bad I should go on bedrest. After having the baby I finally went a doctor, he told me I had a torn labrum in my right hip, but since it had been so long it healed itself. Had several shots of cortizone and various prescriptions meds during this time. The next doctor found Tarlov cysts and attributed my nerve pain (my right leg and down into my foot) to that. The next doctor wanted to operate on my hip. After a pain management doctor finally took x-rays of me sitting, it was discovered that my sacrum and my coccyx rubbed against one another when I sat down. Finally (after 2 years of living with pain levels around 8-10 daily) I was sent to a physiotherapist in a neighboring state. He was able to tell (and I still don't understand why the MRIs and x-rays didn't find this) that my hips were rotated 20 degrees (from east to west), my tailbone was dislocated, my pubis bone was pushed in and back (into my bladder) and my right hip was indeed hypermobile. (The labrum tear was healed and I have calcified muscle deposits hanging around in my hip joint). Finally the ligament that stretches from the front of my right hip down around to the back of my right knee was severely damaged. Five days of intensive 2 hour therapy sessions and my bones were back in place, but it may take another year for me to regain full control of my muscles. I do home exercises and go to the gym regularly - always praising God for allowing me a miracle - my little boy was born just fine and my witness of God's power has never been stronger.
                      If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have charity, I am nothing. 1 Co 13:2

                        I am right-handed & in the 8th grade I broke my wrist on a skateboard. I was going backwards and hit some gravel which threw me off. I landed with force on my wrist. I had to have it in a cast for about 6 weeks so I had to learn to do things with my left hand.

                            When I was a child (in Russia) I lived in St. Petersburg but every summer my family would rent a house in the countryside about 2 hour drive from the city so that me and my sister could enjoy the outdoors.

                            Well when I was 8 or 9 we were renting this shared house, and our neighbour always left his axe in the front yard sitting in a tree stump. Being a curious (and stupid) child that I was I decided to investigate it one time, I took it out of the tree stump... with all my friends watching, examined it and then decided to put it back into the tree stump. What I did not realize was that I put my foot on the tree stump while looking at the axe (having ADHD sucks ) so with all my might I whacked the axe into the tree stump and of course hit myself on the foot. All my friends gasped... but I didn't want to cry in front of them (I fancied myself as a bit of a tough girl ) I told them I was ok and went home.

                            My mom was horrified when I told her what just happened, when she took my shoe and my sock off blood was everywhere, when we cleaned it up a bit we saw that I have a massive cut at the base of one of my toes, I cut down right to the bone (but didn't actually cut into the bone luckily)... the next day my whole foot was mega swallen I still have a scar on that toe, but to be honest this whole story could have ended far worse!
                            I was going to be a Calvinist, but it just wasn't meant to be!

                              I once pulled a muscle pretty badly in my neck when I was about eight. My sister was just a baby and we had this toy she crawled through and I tried to do a flip off of it and landed badly. It freaked my mom out to no end because at first I couldn't move and she thought I'd broken my neck. After a while however, I realized my favorite TV show was coming on and managed to scoot myself around to I could watch it from my position on the floor. Took a few days to heal, but I was fine.

                              That's kinda ... pathetic compared to the other stories here. But I was bored, so I decided to share.
