    Oh also Elldren I didn't get to reply to your post: yes, taxes in the game.

    I get all fired up whenever someone randomly decides to try Elona. The game is so spiteful and wrong.

    And migraines suck.

    What kind of migraines are we talking about?

    Migraines like mine where they're maybe 3 or 4 hours once a month or two? Not a big deal.

    Three-day disabling affairs every time you anger God by daring to eat the wrong food? That would be pretty terrible.

    well when i talked to my doctor about it (well, and an ophthalmologist) i was like 'so if it does degenerate to that point, what are my options', and when i proposed 'well, what about managing the pain'

    and he kind of laughed and went 'yeah... if it gets to the contraction-based migraines, pain management won't be an option. you will need to address it surgically'

    What are the risks of surgery?

    i didn't actually have a comprehensive evaluation about it- so i dunno

    also i could maybe still be in the early-enough stage that the lesser surgery (going in and snipping muscular connections) is still a viable solution

    because while this headache is fucking lame, it's nowhere near 'unendurable, life changing misery'

    so i am gonna try to make an appointment in the morning... and see if i've neglected it for too long already, or what

    The pain is lancinating or boring/drilling in quality, and is located behind the eye (periorbital) or in the temple, sometimes radiating to the neck or shoulder. Analogies frequently used to describe the pain are a red-hot poker inserted into the eye, or a spike penetrating from the top of the head, behind one eye, radiating down to the neck, or sometimes having a leg amputated without any anaesthetic. The condition was originally named Horton's Cephalalgia after Dr. B.T Horton, who postulated the first theory as to their pathogenesis. His original paper describes the severity of the headaches as being able to take normal men and force them to attempt or complete suicide. From Horton's 1939 paper on cluster headache:

    "Our patients were disabled by the disorder and suffered from bouts of pain from two to twenty times a week. They had found no relief from the usual methods of treatment. Their pain was so severe that several of them had to be constantly watched for fear of suicide. Most of them were willing to submit to any operation which might bring relief."[6]

    Indeed, cluster headaches are also known by the nickname "suicide headaches".
    yeah, i actually knew a guy that committed suicide because of migraines.

    Ok ok

    HEAR ME OUT CHU.

    You need a glass eye, and a patch. The patch will have mechanism that will lower it off of your face like a hatch.

    This mechanism will also function to pop your glass eye out of its socket and it will roll down the track of the patch and land on an indentation staring directly ahead.

    Then when people ask you WTF. You say, "Well, I am rather....eyecatching."
    No.

    He needs to replace his eye by a small boxing glove propelled by a very powerful spring, covered up by an eye patch.

    Then whenever someone pisses him off, surprise knock-out punch.

    Honestly, I would go in and find out what the possible long-term risks are from surgery.

    All surgeries carry some risk, there's a small risk of having an adverse reaction to anesthesia that they have to inform you about, but outside of that I'd talk to them about long-term complications.

    If the risk of long-term complications is low, I would find a way to get the surgery. Which, in your case, might involve getting printouts of all your relevant medical records and taking a flight back to Israel.

    I'm glad I just got the minor version. I didn't have to scream or anything; I was just holding my head and squeezing my eyes shut to prevent my right eye from being pushed out of my skull by a spike. Because that's what it felt like.

    Seems I outgrew that; I rarely get them nowadays. Happened a lot in my teens.

    They have a mixed system where basic care is free and anything above basic care is paid for through private insurance.

    Those brain surgeries that they do while the patient is awake, so they can talk to him/her and make sure they haven't snipped something important?
