I have Two scars on my head and cheek.
I went to School one day, feeling under the weather. I was limping slightly due to a minor injury to my right foot, which meant that I was wearing trainers instead of my shoes. The incident happened at Mid day on a typical School day, I was walking to my next lesson on a busy congested stairwell, where I had lost balance due to being pushed but not deliberately. I fell and hit my head onto a sharp corner of a radiator. My friend was in close proximity when it occurred, and I was rushed to the Medical room, on the way I noticed a pool of my blood on the floor and my shirt was drenched in blood.
Since this incident, I have become extremely careful and I try to avoid injuring myself as this was one of my worst injuries I have ever experienced. It has left me feeling self conscious about myself both in the way I look and making sure I am safe at all times.
My family and I were in the process of moving house from North London to Essex, but on one of the packing days I was helping my Dad move some furniture and while moving a large cabinet there was a piece of metal which slid off from the back of it and it impaled me in left cheek. It was extremely painful and I was rushed to the doctors to get stitched.
It is permanent reminder of my move from North London, it sometimes makes it difficult to shave as the area is very sensitive. I feel squeamish thinking about it and makes me feel uncomfortable. People sometimes ask me, but I avoid talking about it, and say its just a scar. I guess it has affected me psychologically.
