I've been wondering this for years
When I was 7, I broke my arm, and as crazy as this sounds, I still don't know how. There has to be a logical explanation. I was wondering if anyone had an idea?

I was at the playground, and I was crawling across the monkey bars [I don't know what everyone else calls them, but more or less its a horizontal ladder with legs]. And my arm just literally broke--both bones, mind you. I didn't slip, fall, twist it, bend it in an unusual way, or anything else.

4 Things of note

~The motion of my hand/wrist- My arm and hand were in a pretty straight line, but at the moment of the break, my hand was slightly up (as if doing as pushup, but more towards the straight side.) After the break, though, my hand was pointed down in a really grotesque-looking way, and it hurt to much to even try to move it out of that position. Eurgh!

~ I had some sort of hallucination when I heard it break: I saw the bar that my hand was on break and my hand go through the rungs, then it switched back to normal. The only actual/physical change was the hand/wrist, mentioned above.

~ I the breaks were about 2 inches below my wrist.

~ I was not overweight--at all, so I think we can rule that out.

Anyone have any ideas/theories? If you do, fire away =)

Thanks for reading, and I'd really appreciate it if you take the time to respond. =)

(Oh, and the doctor never said [to me] how he thought it broke. He may have to my mom, but when I asked her a little bit ago, she said she didn't remember)

Unless you have some kind of bone disorder or were seriously deficient in calcium, nothing immediately comes to mind. For what it's worth, I chipped my elbow when I was about 12 and still have no idea how I managed it.

Children's bones aren't all that solid at that age, it's probably a perfectly normal accident.

Hmm, no bone disorder that I know of, and I'm not sure about the calcium deficiency. That's really weird though. Did you know when it chipped, or did you discover it after the fact?

I'm guessing that it was probably very normal; I don't think it was anything supernatural or whatnot. I just can't figure out how.

Thank you both for responding =)

I discovered it after I had x-rays taken when it swelled to the size of a large orange and hurt like hell <!-- sTongue --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- sTongue -->

Re: I've been wondering this for years
Unfortunately, unless there's a really good doctor on board it's tough to even guess from that info. In the UK, everyone has the right to see their medical records - can you ask if you can take a look at yours? Might be some more details in there!

Yikes Sera, that must have really hurt!

And I'll have to check into that, Archer. Thanks for the suggestion =)

Re: I've been wondering this for years
I have to disagree with this being what most people would consider natural. The part about the "hallucination" with the rung breaking and your hand going through is what's unusual. I think you might have shifted from a reality where the rung did break off and you fell to the ground to one where the rung didn't break. As to why your wrist broke in this reality (if you haven't shifted since then) I can only guess that when you shifted you were partially in both realities when you hit the ground in the one. This is just a guess based on what you wrote. If you have anything else I'd like to hear it.

Re: I've been wondering this for years
It's an interesting theory, HannaTrinity.

If this were concerning someone else, it might be more likely, but I've been prone to hallucinations for a long time. Although they didn't happen quite as often when I was younger.

Oh, and note too: when I had the hallucination of my hand going through the run, I didn't fall in it.

Thanks so much for your input =)

Let me get this right.

There are two options.

One is that a young child fell and broke her wrist and misremembered the details and/or had a stress-induced hallucination/confusion over what happened.

The other is that a young child jumped from one parallel universe to another, broke her wrist, and jumped back again.

And, given everything we know about the fallability of memory, especially in children, and especially in times of stress, and especially with a time lag of years . . . you actually think the Sliders version is not only possible, but actually more likely?
