Hi. So I'm doing some research for my fictional story where one character gets her eye stabbed out. How would that be treated?

Hi. So I'm doing some research for my fictional story where one character gets her eye stabbed out. How would that be treated?

Read Shakespeare: This occurs to Gloucester in King Lear. A good place to start. Is the eye stabbing in the midst of a fight or with a restrained, helpless victim. Or is it a simple accident at work or play?

Best of luck. ...Read more

Besides being a character trait, is there any mental disorder that could be related to being an extreeeemely sore loser yet not having a big ego?

Besides being a character trait, is there any mental disorder that could be related to being an extreeeemely sore loser yet not having a big ego?

Passive aggressive: behavior may be what you're describing. Society teaches many of us to repress anger so we're reluctant to speak up when we feel offended. Like a chemical reaction, this always produces resentment, holding it in but expressing anger indirectly, often unaware of it. A sore loser views losing as a big deal but is it? Learning to speak up & to work thru defeat are good therapy topics. :) ...Read more
