No, but I can say that these posters on Nation's 'Your Say' page, shouldn't be taken too seriously.

Well Nick, you need to toughen up, regardless of any medical issues you may or may not have, that's besides the point. You overstayed and now you are paying the price.

There's obviously more to this story than meets the eye. Why aren't you working now? you say your panic attacks improved. I think you are feeling sorry for yourself and I wonder if you are expecting sympathy here. Generally there is only one person you can rely on in this life and it's yourself. I do understand fully your situation, you may think no-one does, but at 66 I lived in an old car for 2 years homeless apart from the old car, particularly difficult at my age and also I am a woman. You are a younger man, what you do with your life is up to you but to contemplate suicide in my opinion is the cowards way out. Pull yourself together and explore your options.

He told the Nation that in 2015 after being a "law abiding citizen" in Thailand for ten years that his panic attacks meant that he could barely leave the house.

he should have lived in Hua Hin. So boring there is no reason to leave the house. :cheesy:

 

but seriously i hope he gets help. maybe better to be in your own country with that kind of serious disorder.

If he got banned in 2016 for 3 years that means his ban is coming to an end this year and he can be at his game back soon.

Another narcissist attacking an inevitable differing opinion even before it's written.

As someone who is pretty well housebound because of physical, medical problems, I still meet all immigration requirements. I have no sympathy for this character. It seems he came here in his 20's and gradually became a hermit, although it seems he is able to visit a 7-11 at night for food. No mention of where his money came from in the first place, but I'm guessing his contribution to society is fleeting. 

Now, having been repatriated to his home country he still blames Thailand for not giving him a free ride. Even if Thailand miraculous developed a humanitarian visa, this guy wouldn't qualify.

He's now living on the streets, his panic disorder seems to have different parameters now.

I would surmise that the idea of "one less farang" would be a good thing for many Thais. Most Thais think there are too many of us already. That is the root of the problem.

Well, "one less farang with mental issues" isn't a bad thing.  Just saying....

I have never believed in the term "attempted suicide".  It either is suicide or not. If you really want to, it isn't difficult.  I call them attempts at attention.  Which is truly what he needed.  Some attention and help.   Next case......

Is this from your experience helping suicidal people, or the families of people who have attempt  suicide?

 

I worked with a charity helping suicidal people.  Many 'attempts' are the real thing, but the people either made a mistake, or get saved by someone at the last moment, fortunately being found and rushed to hospital for stomach pumps, emergency surgery etc.  T

 

These are not simply people wanting 'some attention'.  In fact, family with attitudes like yours often mean the person is ignored or belittled and the people think they are not really going to kill themselves and are just trying to get attention (told to 'get help' and 'next case'.  Often the next time they 'attempt' it they will succeed, much to the surprise and shock of the family or friends.

 

The story of the OP is about mental illness, however, and he can not blame Thai immigration rules for his situation.

Odd, how the term "loser" is always defined as a person who does not make enough in his home country and is doing quite well in a country with a lower cost of living.

Thats so true, a mate  went there by the new ferry from Pattaya,

He took one look at Hua Hin,  then decided to stay on board and go straight back to pattaya.
