Seventy-eighth Question

Do you have any scars on your body? If so, what caused it (or them)?

    I have too many scars to count...some big, some small.
    I have a scar that replaced another scar from when I had my second c-section delivery. That's probably the biggest. I have a scarred up knee from running up the sidewalk steps at my house in highschool barefoot and falling down. I have a scarred up finger from where I shut it in the car door and tore it off. They were able to reattach it. I have a lot of scars left by my compulsion to pick at scabs. I have a lot of scars from "cutting". I have a pretty decent scar on the back of my leg from putting on a bathing suit at Gadzooks when I was in highschool -- the security tag had come apart and the sharp part was exposed and grazed all the way up the back of my leg when I pulled the suit up. I have a scar on my ribcage from someone's hair clip in cheerleading during my younger years. I have a scar from my navel ring that is no longer there. I have a scar on my hand from a dog bite.

    It's amazing how resilient our skin is!

    I have a little indent on the right temple area from chicken pox. I have a few acne darkened-area type scares on my face, but I'm lucky I don't have more... I had terrible acne and still get break outs.

    A pink dot on the outerside of my left pinky finger for as long as I can remember. My father said I pinched it in the door when I just learned to walk.

    A white scrape the length of my right pinky toe. I've also had that for as long as I can remember.

    Numerous faded stretch marks. Because I'm so friggen pale, they ended up turning a white color and you can harldy notice them now. For that, I'm grateful. The only time my lack of color has done me good.

    Let's see... Not exactly scars but marks on both my legs, left pretty much permanently (haven't faded in two years) by fetishfootwear. Scar shaped like Japanese symbol on my left hip, made with a razorblade. Horseshoe shaped burnscar on my arm, made on purpose too. "Regular" scar on my left palm, no idea from where. A cutmark on my left indexfinger, too sharp knife and a slippery tomato when I was about eleven. Scartissue inside my lower lip where my teeth went through when I was in an accident. A faint scar across my nose from being punched to the face. Scars behind both ears, cosmetic correction operation when I was fourteen. Right eyebrow has a scar from being hit by a swing when I was four. Left eyebrow has a scar from being hit by a motorcycle.

    That's all, for now. More will come when I take my piercings off.

    I have a scar on my stomach from when I got the chicken pox in 2nd grade. At first, my mom thought it was a pimple or something and just put a band aid over it and now I have a scar.

    That is the only scar that comes to mind.

    Numerous small scars, mostly from picking at pimples or bug bites.

    I guess I'm a "cutter", but I do it with fingernails. Sharp objects scare me. Probably due to my fear of needles from when I was very little.

    I don't have a scar, but I still have a dent in my forehead from when I walked into a pipe sticking out of a wall. I was probably 9. You really can't see the dent unless I raise my eyebrows... then my forehead wrinkles around it.

    I probably have scar tissue on the inside of my mouth... but it gets chewed away. Which is how I have scar tissue there... continual nibbling due to stress. :)

    I have two small scars on the back of my left hand from 3rd grade. My class was going out to the playground, and this freaking hick of a classmate named Kyle Urban went to push past me, and gouged his fingernails into my skin. It bled like a banshee, so I ran in to see the school nurse to treat it. Then my teacher finds me and yells at me for not telling him first where I was going.
    MORONS.

    i got it when i was 16 and my older brother threw a clog at me...it was back in the day when they were made out of wood...

    the odd thing is through the years i have developed a line shaped like this ( next to my left eye...so now it looks like my eys are closed in by parenthasis...i guess all that yoga is really balancing me out in all kinds of ways...

    I have an inch long scar complete with stitches on my left shoulder. Melanoma scare before they removed that stuff with lasers.

    Lower Right calf - Older brother dropped me while lifting me over rusty barbed-wire fence. My parents saw fit to get me neither stitches nor tetanus shot. It is silvery in color.

    Right index finger - a little thinner than the left. Meat slicer accident when I worked at a deli in high school.

    Lower abdomen - bikini incision from an oompherectomy...left tube and ovary.

    Lower back - half moon shaped scar from a bath tub spigot. I had been kneeling, and when I stood up I scraped. I wasn't alone ;>

    Left elbow - Kaluah brought back from Puerto Rico. Rain. Slick concrete boat ramp.

    I have so many scars. Most of them are self-inflicted and mostly on my forearms. I have a big scar by my left elbow from a "sissy test" in the 8th grade where they took a pencil eraser and rubbed your skin until you bled. If you couldn't take the pain, you were a sissy. I wasn't a sissy. Also on my hand I have a scar where my hand was stuck to the top of a 600 degree pizza oven. I have a tiny scar under my right eye from a beer bottle and a chicken pox scar on my nose. Also I have a C-section scar. I also have scars from having a hernia repaired and my apendix removed. I think thats it but I am sure I am missing something.

    One under my chin from falling off some type of rocking horse toy as a toddler. One on each of my knees from arthroscopies as a teen, one on my upper chest from a nasty cat scratch, and at the rate they're healing, I'll have three funky ones on my lower right leg from dog scratches.

    i have a scar about 7 in long on my back. i had scoliosis surgery when i was 12 (10 years ago) and they put a titanium rod in to hold my spine in place in order to prevent it from curving any more. they also used part of the marrow from my hip to fuse some vertebrae and i have a scar from that. i also have a scar on my upper lip from a bike wreck i had in '96. my braces went through my lip and caused a nasty gash. i also have several other scars from that accident.

    big scar on my leg from horseback riding in Jamaica. It's old and really fading, but it used to be a big purple ugly mess. (my leg got caught behind a fallen tree - quiet ouchy)

    I have a scar on my knee from a head on collision in New Hampshire. It was Ford Explorer Vs. Volvo Station Wagon. They were both knocked out in the first round.

    I also have two scars from my breast implant surgery, but they are extremely minor and hidden in the folds under my breasts.

    Other than that, nothing major.

    I have a scar on my right wrist from surgery. I also have misc. scars from the cats and dogs scratching me.

    I have a scar on my left wrist from my one and only surgery to remove a cyst. Several chicken pox scars on my back, thigh and forehead near my eyebrow. One on my palm from trying to break up a snow cone with a steak knife and going through the paper cup and one on my thumb from a glass salad bowl that I dropped and cut myself on trying to catch it. There are several from assorted cat scratches, in varying stages of healing.
