Let's see...

I've been stung multiple times (approximately 13) by bees at one time.

I've nearly drowned on three separate occasions.

I've had a bum offer my mom two sleeping bags in exchange for my brother and me.

I've fallen out of a countless number of trees.

I've fallen through a frozen ice creek three miles away from 'room temperature'.

So there's five of the many more things that I'd rather not go through again.

Not painful memory, but one of my fondest memories was when I was a kid and I went to a friends house. While he was outside playing in his sandbox I threw his cat out the second story window at him. Man you should have seen the kids face when the cat hit. It was priceless.

most physically painful as a child was when i was 10 or 11 and i was at an after-school basketball rec legue paractice. i was running after a ball, dead sprint with one other kid and the chinup bars on the side were still set to 6-year-old height. i was looking down at the ball and my head went right into the side of the chinup bar. totally didnt see it. feet kept going, smacked down square on my back, blood coming from the scalp.


good times ;-D

Do you mean the most physically painful memory or a painful image etched in my brain.

Physically
I was in Kindergarten, so I must have been around 4 years old. I was riding my bike through a puddle over and over again. This puddle was at the bottom of a hill near a stop sign. This old man in a station wagon came barrelling down the hill. I guess he didn't see me. I'm not sure if he actually hit the bike or if I fell down on my own. The rod of the bike pedal went into my knee. There was a hole the size of a quarter in my knee all the way to the bone, strands of flesh hanging out and blood gushing at a very fast rate. There were tire tread marks on my shirt. I came inches from being crushed. I still have the scar today.

Mental Anguish
My parents were on vacation and "Aunt Dottie" was looking after us. She wasn't a real aunt. Just some 65ish year old lady who was our live in baby sitter when my folks went away. Anyhow, I walked into a bedroom to ask her a question and she was getting dressed. The image of this old wrinkly lady stark naked has scarred me forever. I want to vomit everytime I think about it.
