Beth Palmer was 17 and dreaming of becoming a singer in March 2020 when the United Kingdom went into lockdown because of the coronavirus. One month later, she was dead.
"She was a wonderful, wonderful daughter. She was just funny, she lit up the room.," said Mike Palmer, Beth’s father. "She was so affectionate and loving as well. She basically had the world at her feet. She had everything, everything to live for.”
Palmer didn’t die of the coronavirus. She took her own life.
An aspiring singer and vocal student at the Access Creative College in Manchester, Palmer crumbled in isolation. Her family states that she had previously shown no signs of struggling with her mental health. However, she claimed the mandated stay-at-home order felt like centuries.
"She couldn't finish college, she couldn't go out and see her friends. She felt as though this three-month lockdown was to her 300 years,” her father said in a video that went viral last year.
Unable to finish college, see her friends, or pursue her passion, the usually vivacious and affectionate Palmer became obsessive in her fear that the lockdown would never end....

I don't know that a psychologist can help in this case.
I almost think such a young woman needs to sit down with another woman, one who is kind of like "Gunny" from "Major Dad" and watch the original "Red Dawn" together.
You know the scene where the Patrick Swayze character tells the group to let their grief and anger turn to something else?
A discussion needs to be held about what that something else is in this case. The Brits seem to have had a good idea with their 100k plus march in London recently.
These marches have been all over the place, but rarely reported, I think there was actually one in Canada recently that had something like 500,000…but of course, it was only reported (with photographs and proof from some local stations) on random websites and never appeared in US sources or, to my knowledge, in Canadian official media.
I feel terrible for the Brits, the Aussies and the Canadians. I don’t know why all of these British associated places have been so weird, except possibly that the Brits have always been a little on the statist and officious side. Which is why we had the American Revolution.
Well, allowing MEN to steal their sports isn’t helping.......................
Forced isolation is unnatural. It forced upon people who were punished if they didn’t obey. It should never be imposed on the public again.
I guarantee this the “suicide death” number is much higher than the “COVID-19 death” number
Womankind has taken a beating by lock down, social media cesspool,gender freaks and societal decay as many go out rioting as Antifa and BLM or being Karen. Any healthy outlet for women is destroyed by the leftist ilk. Too much time on one’s hands is never good.
Clearly Climate Change is to blame. And if not, then Whitey is to blame. Wait a minute, since whitey caused climate change, I guess you can blame both.
That is really crazy.
There are places in Aus that you are the only person for miles.
CHINA & AMERICA’S CIVILIZATIONAL SUICIDE
Did you see the Roducanu match yesterday? She’s a star.
Midsummer in 2020 someone published figures for suicides in Texas by county. The number of suicides was way up from 2019. There were suicides in counties that had had no Covid cases. The fear factor and the social isolation brought on by the lockdowns is devastating to many people.
and 99% of them are prolly RATS...
Its killing them inside - mostly the girls - they already have enough issues with self confidence and self-esteem.
Social media is a killing zone and somehow there needs to be a massive effort to educate parents and encourage them to take away the kids smartphones and block the computer apps.
...March 2020 when the United Kingdom...
In 1665, London business went on as usual while the plague victims and families were the only ones quarantined.
Some were still dying of the plague, a year later, when the Great Fire cleaned out the cit.
They should still be wearing a mask.
They might infect themselves or something.
DON’T GET DEPRESSED, GET EVEN.
I agree. The online life of most adolescent girls is incredibly toxic, and the governments that took away the real lives of girls are absolutely heartless.
This is not to downplay the effects of the restrictions on boys, who have also experienced a great deal of harm, just usually with a different dynamic.
Yes, there was that unfortunate incident with the transgender athlete on TV. She had a “wardrobe malfunction” when one of her testicles fell out. Quite embarrassing.
It was not whitey. It is the Chinese and Indians causing climate change. Try visiting their cities, the air is horrible along with traffic jams and bad drivers.
