I've got several scars from being stubborn when I was younger. I was like one of the boys.. I play street games, run here, run there.. And I remember when I had my first bike, it was actually quite big for me the time I got it.. I never stopped until I learned how to use it.. Then I got this scar on my knees because I keep on falling. Well I got all the motivation of learning how to bike, and it did pay off.. Less the scar though.. I also have a scar on my right brow, it was funny cause I got it when I had my chicken pox back in HS, I pricked it, which I thought it was a big acne.. Not until I realized that it wasn't when it was too late.. I've got some little scars from other clumsy stuff.. I can't remember mostly of those.. But you know, although I realized while I was growing up, that I could have more careful of myself.. But then, without these scars, I wouldn't experience those good memories of learning new things..

I have many scars I was an accident prone kid that time. I got my first scar on my chin when I fell in the double deck when I was 1 yr. old.I'm very lucky that I don't have serious injury on my head my guardian angel save me. I have 3 stitches on my body everytime I look at them it reminds me how michievous I'am that time. Up to now I don't know why I still accident prone.

Most of my scars come from riding bicycle while still at school. I could never just ride normal, I always had to try and do something.Riding normal was boring. I got to school many time full of blood and then had to go to medical to get cleaned up. One day I fell from my bicycle, because I tried a new stunt, and landed on my face. When I got to school my face was covered in bloob and two teeth broken. When the teacher saw me she nearly fainted. She send me to medical and although I was fine, they kept me there until school came out. I had a nice rest and missed all classes. The rest of my scars all came from operation, 13 operations, big ones. Enjoy the memories, Blessings

How about most of them? Had chicken pox last February and I'm still ravaged by scars albeit a bit faded now.

One of my scars which is on my left forearm, was from making an apple pie at school! Someone called my name as I was taking it out of the oven, so I turned around and the plate tipped and fell on my arm. Another on my left ear is from my ear being pierced wrong. It split! Hospital stitched along the bottom of ear, but sprayed something on which I just had to pick off! In turn this pulled out the 3 stitches and split a little more, ended up with another 10 stitches.

I got one of my scars from a motorbike carburetor. My leg accidentally touched it while it was still hot and I got a second degree burn from it. It looks really bad. But I went to the dermatologist just the other day and she gave me some cream to put on it to at least make the scar look better.

I can remember how I got every scar that I have, but that probably has a lot to do with the fact that I don't have too many. I have one on my chin that I got when I was about 6 years old. I was swinging in the doorway and my older brother came behind me and tried to hold me up. I ended up falling and hitting my chin against the corner of the bathroom sink, the result, several sticthes and my scar. I have one on th einside of my upper arm from being bitten by a pitbull puppy. I was playing hide and seek with the kids I was babysitting. They couldn't find me, so, they got the dog to help. They didn't know her would bite, and I don't think the dog did it out of meanness, he was just playing. I have one on my lower back from having to have back surgery, and one right under my belly button from another surgery. I can even remember how my kids got the scars that they have. I think I remember theirs because they bothered me when the incidences that led to them happened.

Hi and hello there! ^_^ I have one on my forehead. I got this when I was 3 years old. Me and my playmate are playing like I'm her baby and she's my mom. She tried to carry me like a real baby but, because she can't carry me on that way, she drop me and my forehead bump onto the edge of our stair. OUch!

I have a scar on my knee from when I was about 8 years old. We had like a yard lining wall around our front yard that was made of concrete. I was walking on it like a balance beam one time, and I stopped paying attention when one of my brother's friends came over, I was talking to him and I mis-stepped and fell down and knocked my knee in to the concrete. It was a big narly cut, and turned in to a huge scap that got infected. It was awful and the scar still remains on my knee to this day.

I got mine back when i was 2 or 3 years old. We went to our aunt's place. Me and my sister were playing on a foldable table and it kind of flipped so i fell on the floor hitting my jaw on an open pipe. Sister called for help then there i was being brought to the nearest hospital. Nearest means 20 to 30 minutes. I don't know but i don't remember crying when that happened. My shirt was a bloody mess. lol! I surived of course but it left a scar. It's not really that distracting but as i grow up i think it's moving near my chin. lol!

Wow, I have a few stories to chose from too! lol Umm, My biggest is from a motorcycle wreck when I was 8 years old. Still have no idea why my family let me on a motorcycle, but lesson learned for me... I was going around a corner and lost control on some gravel rocks. When I slid sideways I fell over and the was caught under the bike, it was laying on top of me and the muffler was laying on my leg. I ended up with a third degree burn on my leg (about 6" long). It was so bad that I had no feeling in my leg because the nerves were burned so bad. I will never let my little ones on a motorcyle ;)

One of my scars resulted when I was running really fast and fell on my left knee on the pavement. It left a deeper cut than I originally thought it would, and now, six years later, I have a lovely scar. Two other scars--one on my right knuckle and the other on my right inner forearm, just below the wrist--resulted when I was really ticked off and put my fist through my bedroom window, demolishing one of the panes. It was not a pretty sight. lol

Hello smooch091784 , I have some scars on my legs and knees. I got those scars from playing outside when I was younger. The first scar I got was when I was a toddler and I don't even remember doing it but I was jumping on the bed and I fell off and hit my forehead on a corner of a night stand. It is not too noticible but it is something I always remember having. The last scar is from my emergency appendectomy I had to have while I was on vacation in San Diego. I got to San Diego on a monday and by thursday I was in the hospital, thought I had food poisoning but it was more serious. It is a little scar maybe about an ince and a half long. I'm glad I didn't have to be cut in half like what they had to practically do before their new procedure.

I have a scar on my left forearm which is shaped alike a question mark. I was a youngster, perhaps 14 years old then when i climbed a drumstick tree to pluck a few drumsticks for dinner. Drumstick tree is very fragile and as soon as I stepped on one of the branches, it gave way and I came crashing down. The question mark now keeps asking me why i climbed such a delicate tree.
