DeKaaskpp, I would suggest a lot, and a lot more contemplating it but not going through with it. It is actually very difficult to kill yourself. It is going to hurt! I despair at what I see. And there is NO end in sight. Why cannot private enterprises buy a vaccine? Will not cost the government anything.

Sad indeed.Wondering how many people in Thailand took their own life because they lost everything because of some stupid draconian measures taken to fight Covid ?
