I find myself getting hurt a lot. I have had eight casts on my left arm, two casts on my left foot/leg, three casts on my right wrist. I have had to get stitches like seven or eight times. I have spent the night at the hospital several different times for head injuries. I've had several horrible burns and bruises. The thing is, now that I've been thinking about it, I think in a way I've been causing it myself. I guess you could say that I was subconsciously harming myself. I take greater risks than others, and I like it when I'm hurt. For all of my injuries, it was completely possible that they were accidents, but I am pretty sure at the time they weren't. I keep getting hurt with poor decisions. Some examples are: ~I broke my arm for the first time when I tried to do a cartwheel on a balance beam. Before I did it, I felt I would get hurt, and it made me want to do it more. ~About three weeks ago, I had to get twelve stitches in my right forearm because I "accidentally" slashed open my arm with a chopping knife while I was helping out in the kitchen of my aunt's restaurant. I don't think I planned on it, but it didn't really surprise me. ~I broke my foot and leg at the same time when I chose to ride a young mare (female horse) who wasn't broke (not ridden). She tried to throw me, but my boot got caught in the stirrup and she dragged me for about a hundred yards before I got free. Is it possible for me to be hurting myself intentionally without knowing it?
