    I really am, In gym we were playing basketball and a rebound jammed two fingers on my left hand. And without thinking i screamed at the top of my voice "NOOOOOOOO!!!!! NOT MY FRETTING HAND!!!!!" cause it really hurt bad. the whole gym full of people stopped and looked at me. Looking back at it it is pretty funny. I should have added a "WHY GOD WHY!?!?!?!?!?!?!" at the end. Now that would have been funny

    :rofl:

    That's hillarious, but, I do have a fear of severe hand injury, in the sense that "man that would REALLY suck."

    But I don't freak out about it :lol:

    "They took my squeezing arm. Why my squeezing arm? WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?"

    I freak out about it whenever my arm acts up again. I've had carpal tunnel issues several times due to being a drummer, but when the full arm starts feeling weird as n "not good", you do kinda panic. Especially when it's the right arm, and you're right-handed...

    I used to be quite cautious about that.. and wrist injuries and such. I never was quite paranoid, but even my worries about it have ceased in recent years. Come to think of it, in the recent past, I've made some pretty serious errors with power tools that could have seriously fucked up my hand (though, luckily, I wasn't harmed). I didn't think "Oh shit, that could have taken off my finger and I wouldn't be able to play guitar anymore!" In fact, it was more "Oh shit, that would hurt. I wonder if I could still do all of the EMS skills I need to with missing fingers"

    I wouldn't consider myself paranoid. I just try a be a touch extra careful compared to non-musicians for most things. With the exception of knives which I am excessively careful with, for obvious reasons.

    I juggle with knifes so I can't agree with you there.

    When i was in my first band when i was about 16/17 i was trying to put spikes into my army boots (LOL) so i was stabbing at leather, with a knife.... twat! It slid through and sliced my middle finger on my fretting hand, 3 hours before a gig. It absolutely sprayed with blood and i thought that was it, my guitaring days were over. It was so deep, but alas, i played the gig with a stupidly huge bandage wrapped around it 50 times, i even pulled off a pretty sweet solo.

    Then, 5 years on, only last year, i was preparing a salad on one of those fancy slicers where u just slide the cucumber or whatever through two blades, and the cucumber got really low, and THWACK!! i hit my finger on it, and did this

    Hurt so bad, and... ITS THE SAME FINGER!!

    I now do anything to do with blades with my right hand lol. I really worry about it a lot actually, i'd hate to do some permanent damage

    Recently I've been thinking twice about doing stupid things where I could mess up my hand. (leaps of faith, roulette) etc.

    I refuse to go ice skating because of the paranoia of someone skating ove my fingers and then having them possibly sewn back on.

    I sliced my thumb a little yesterday on a sharp piece of metal. Nothing worse than a very bad paper cut, but it hurts, and since it's a long cut, it curls to the bottom side of my thumb where I rest my pick!

    :scream:

    Not that big of a deal... But it sucks.

    I get pretty nervous thinking about things that could happen. I'm pretty careful with most things involving my hands. I can't imagine how much it'd suck not being able to play guitar.

    You have the same fear as I do man! It's a scary thought. Especially Ice Hockey skates that have quite the edge...

    I used to skateboard, and I stopped because I was afraid of injuring myself and not being able to play anymore.
