    17 Struggles People Who Always Get Injured Will Understand

    I don't always roll a joint, but when I do, it's my ankle.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the biggest struggles of being clumsy. Here are the painfully relatable results.

    1. First of all, nobody even bothers asking if you're OK anymore when you get hurt — they just sigh and shake their head.

    2. And falling in public happens so often that it almost gets less embarrassing every time — almost.

    3. When you’re always tripping over everything, no one trusts you to carry out everyday tasks without getting hurt.

    4. And you can't be trusted to carry anything fragile, because you'll probably drop and break it.

    5. Your medical bills racked up over the years are higher than your student loans.



    6. You know that no matter how hard you try not to, you’ll always bump into something that'll leave a scar.

    7. And when you're in a hurry, your clumsiness increases by roughly 200%.


    8. You rarely wear white or light-colored clothing, because you know you'll ruin it.

    14. You have a glorious collection of casts, crutches, and splints from over the years that you can whip out when something hurts.

    16. Being around pretty much anything valuable is your personal hell.
