Oh, Daisy. I wish you hadn't asked that. I wont be opening this thread again. Glad I am first!

Wish we had a "hide this post" option......

The only scar I can think of is one on my boob.  I had a chicken pox that wouldn't. stop. itching!  lol  Scratched and picked and it scarred.

I guess my worse scar that someone could see without me being undressed is my chin.  As a child (3rd or 4th grade) I was a hoola hoop queen and I was "jumping rope" with it and somehow ended up falling face down on concrete hitting my chin.  Had over 20 sutures in it but it is kind of hidden unless I point it out. 

Next would be the scars I have from having my port placed for chemotherapy.  They are on my chest and sometimes if I have a lower cut shirt on you can see them.

When I was 6 years old I thought the glass storm door wasn't latched, but it was.  I thought I could open the door by placing my hand on the glass and pushing.   It didn't go well for me.   My hand went through the glass.   I got stiches down my right wrist and it looks like I tried to kill myself by slitting my wrist.   People that know how terrified I am of blades would laugh at that.   But I am very sensitive about it.

I have a scar below my bottom lip. I was 5 and running full speed down a hill right into a barbed wire fence. You can see where the stitches were.

My parents had two plexi-glass storm doors installed right after that.

Thanks Daisy - I just count on Q&E being a happy place - and political discussions get in my head and I get pissed off and judgmental. Already the technical issues piss me off, so I really don't want any additional aggravation from iVillage!

I have a scar on my shin, I got out of our car and went running around to the other side and hit the trailer hitch on the back end of the car. I went down hard and fast with that one. It wasn't a lot of blood, but it went to the bone. No stiches, no insurance when I was younger.  My dad wouldn't work and keep it on us, so I have more scars then I should since I never went to the ER for stiches.

I also have one on my thumb and the fleshy part of my palm right next to where the thumb is attached. My cousins and I were playing in the back of their dad's old CJ Jeep (you know, pretending we were teenagers out driving around LOL) and I went to get out the back end and it was rusted and I sliced my thumb open, My aunt cleaned it up and put some gauze on it and I was out running around. Again, needed stiches, but didn't get them.
