Thanks for the warning on your gross ass wrist.
To be honest though, wearing wrist guards (depending on the style) a lot of times just applies the all of the pressure of the fall into one spot which will cause a break higher up in your arm.
Right? And you're welcome!
I would much rather the break to be higher up. The wrist is a nasty place to break, and I can no longer supinate the full range of motion, so even minor things, like holding my baby, can tweak it just enough to make it swell for a few days...the original injury was 6 years ago...
