We've just about all been subjected to pain by others and most guys have taken a shot to the privates but what have you done to yourself that really, really hurt? Sorry fairer ones, but that rules out childbirth, even the Most Blessed One had some assistance getting to that point.
My Story - The most painful injury memory that I haven't permanently repressed went like this. I was standing very near the top of a step ladder (supported by the wife) and trimming tree limbs with a pole saw. One limb fell into the high-tension lines which immediately began to arc loudly. Self-preservation instincts kicked in and I threw the trimming pole in one direction and jumped backwards in the other. My landing on one foot on the concrete patio was accompanied by loud popping sounds as each metatarsal joint rotated under me and excruciating pain set in quickly. Within minutes, although miraculously no bones were broken, my foot and ankle were about the size of my knee. Ten years, therapy and orthotics not withstanding, I still can't stand/walk for extended periods of time without pain.
What's your story?
