And I told wife to start applying for PR. We are leaving.    Except I can't bring myself to leave.    I don't wanna sound like one of those posters, but I really didn't come here f

Only imagine, sitting on a plane back to Europe, or elsewhere?   When we are getting older, nothing is as it once was.   Sex perhaps once a month? And if so, with chemical help?

I suppose if I had unlimited finances, I would probably leave. I despise the government and immigration here, and it does feel like the nation is moving backwards. But, considering the fact that I do

OP - Some things to consider; Do you have property here that can be liquidated for moving funds? (most property here is "family owned" so would/could present issues to sell) Do you have property back in Canada? (if not then you'd be citizen refugees) Are you both too old to live off the grid or do you need a city? (buying land and building your own homestead is not that expensive if done correctly)

If your current occupation is reliant on covid being fixed then you have another 6 months to a year to wait for that.

When I settled down 19 years ago, I was confident that my ashes would be thrown into the ocean once I'm gone. 


  Now I'm not so sure what the future will be. Thailand has changed a lot, but of course, so have other countries.


And of course, we also change........


 But once the OMS pops in ( Old Marriage Syndrome), the end seems to be near.

I don't get it. He's only been here 7 years. He's not mentioned any actual real illness's. The covid has hurt his finances. 


You should be writing this year and next year off. So that means you got 2 years to figure out something new or learn something new.

I do not know  , I had a neighbor when I was living back in France , he was a nice guy , always occupied with repair jobs on his big old house and the garden ...

One day he said that he is too old for this now ... he sold everything and moved into an appartment where he had nothing to take care for anymore ... within 3 month , he died ...


When you need help to live your daily life , where will you get the best standard ?

In a home for old people in Canada ?

Or , may be , if you just stay in your home here  and find or employ somebody who looks after you ?

Maybe I am overthinking everything and I should just stay.


BUT I am also worried when me and wife get old. Canada gives free money to people over 65 and also free healthcare. In Thailand it will be hard. I have a place paid off in Canada, so at least housing will not be an issue. For those not familiar with my life story I didn't even grow up in Canada. I am an naturalised citizen, perhaps this is why  I don't feel anything towards the country, just trying to think logically.
