      After the city restore, I don't think you can reach it anymore.

  8. An accident is haunting me

    Thank you, you guys. I do feel a sense of relief for sharing my troubles. Because of your kind words I talked things over with my wife, and she also insists I take the financial aid to help me move on. So, that is what I will do. Thankfully the psychiatrist is a student benefit, and I will not get charged. I'm giving it a try on Tuesday. EDIT: So the counsellor insisted I call to settle my accounts and accept my parents help, so I did. I called and pleaded my case, getting approximately 30% off my bills across the board, but I had to settle them immediately. That sucked, but I'm done with that. Maybe I will spent my money on things that cheer me up for a little while. I've been assigned to keep a diary and get more exercise. I'm going to give that a try. Who knows, maybe I will be my old self soon?
  9. Hello, It's a little difficult to open up a little, but I have been having a rough time for the last six months and I notice I feel somewhat better after talking about it. Today marks 6 months since I had an accident ... I cut off a couple fingers and the most amazing surgeon reattached them for me. It's hard to imagine the shock. I still can hardly bare to think about it. I was about to host a house-warming party. I was tired from a long night cooking. I still needed to do a gardening chore. I was hasty, clumsy, and for a few seconds I did not think, and suddenly I was hurt. After my surgery I don't think I have been the same as I was. I was told I will never heal and may need further surgery in the future. For now, I am slowly regaining function and the pain is mostly gone. Rather carefree before, I have difficulty coping with stress and a feeling of guilt. I have had to use only my left hand for a few months. I am using my right hand now, avoiding the use of my hurt fingers. Playing piano was my passion, and now I carefully play simple tunes, hoping I may heal and be normal yet again within the next six months. First of all I am having a hard time dealing with a feeling of guilt. The student health care I had was good 4 years ago, but apparently the Obama changes have hollowed my insurance while doubling my premiums. Unaware of those changes, I have racked up a large debt. Three years of high monthly bills is what it takes. I am working a second job just to cover those expenses. I have less energy, less time, and less money to spend with my wife. She, on the other hand, is working harder too to reduce the stress on me. I can tell she has struggled a lot, and I feel so guilty. My parents offered to help financially, and I cannot accept, because I feel like me working harder for the next three years is necessary to "right my wrong". Secondly, I am not coping with stress. I can't deal with traffic congestion. I find myself staring at my screen when I should do work, unable to get started. I need longer breaks to calm down after doing things that seem so intensive now. I worry a lot now. I get reminded about my accident - a lot! Every week, the companies resend me the updated bills. I make steady payments, but my ambulance company sent the account to a collection agency. I don't want to deal with them, but they call me twice a day. And I can't deal with them, I was making steady payments so legally they had no right put me in collections. Because of all that, I can't let this go. Thankfully I have people that care about me, that offer their support. I have been told to talk to a psychologist. I really don't want to, but I promised I will next week. I am still hoping to make peace with myself, accept that my accident does not mean I have to torture myself for a long time to come. I want things to be as they were before. Thank you for listening.

  11. I've been waiting for public release. Is it going to be a Xmas present?


    1. Wolfox


      around 2018.

    2. DreamblitzX


      My guess is that public release might be when the spoiler lock drops

      now that you mention it...

  12. TLDR; What Mono Run should I do?

    I choose grass too. So many options to choose from, but none overpowered. I usually do not choose grass instead getting the same coverage by water+electric types, so it would be more fun to emphasize this type. Also, I think Torterra is really cool.
  13. In that case, an animation would be pretty awesome while transitioning to the new field. I think that has added value. Going underwater might show a stream of water entering the screen. Setting a grass field ablaze will have fire quickly spreading out. Etc
  14. Well, there IS so much that Patreon can do about it. That's the point of my argument. So I squarily disagree with you out there. You can easily think of a few - 1. reduce paypal fees by bundling transaction fees (like they were doing previously) 2. Find a different model to prevent double-charging. I suppose a reduced subscription pledge for the first month is one I like. 3. Yearly subscriptions. You want to pledge 1$ per month, but not pay paypal fees 12x a year? Then do a yearly pledge of $12. What a concept ... You may think of your own preference, but one thing is for sure : Credit card payments of 1$ is an expensive thing and inefficient way to support a creator. And your argument that they are growing and need more fees is true - they take a percentage of everything. So they get more funding as they grow without increasing rates. EDIT: I just read a cool idea about buying Patreon credits. One transaction for Paypal, but you determine how and how fast these credits go towards creators.
  15. I dislike Patreons new fees policy. Please let me know your opinion on my new topic
