  1. I support SA’s measures to protect us from Covid19. That said, I am not coping AT all with cold-turkey nicotine withdrawal, both mine and my husband’s. He suffers from PTSD. What about mental health issues under these _extremely_ stressful circumstances? I don’t think I can cope any more. Better if I just end it now.

    • You end it now then what? Solution to life’s issues is not death. Death is your worst enemy as you can’t choose to change your circumstances after that. Choose wisely live today and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour. He died on the cross for people like you and me who are beat up by our choices, circumstances and life. As much as I may not understand your position at least I know this there’s life after death and that God desires we spend eternity with Him. All we have to do is surrender our struggles n sufferings to Him. He loves you more than anyone can ever love you. I wanted to end things at some point of my life I couldn’t deal with the consequences of my choices they were too much to bear under severe depression. One day I gave my life to Christ and I was never the same again and glad am I that I made the choice to live so that I can tell someone about the Good News of the Saviour Jesus Christ. I am that witness that Christ can change your life no matter who you are, coz Jesus Christ is not for the perfect but for the lost, weak, hopeless, n imperfect people like me.

      • Itu, that was the best message you could give to Heather the salvation message bless you. Take hold of what you have just heard Heather it’s the best news you could ever
        get and peace will fill you as you do so.

  2. To believe that these figures are a true reflection of the virus being managed would be an extremely simplistic view with a lack of ability to see the bigger picture, understand our history over the past 25 years and question deeply.

  3. He is the God our Healer just believe…keep the faith and trust Him as He is in control and He knows what is best He is a God of a second…third and fourth chance and He loves us all as He created all of us. Jesus now more then ever!!
