Ok, I am officially stressed and frustrated. Why does everything cost so much? And these are basic things at that! My daughter needs vaccines to be better equipped against diseases. I see this as a basic human need and thus it should be easier to obtain. But vaccines are sooooo expensive! I don't even know why this is so. In other countries, vaccines are free. Why aren't they free here? Another thing- food. This is beginning to be priced as a "luxury good". Imaging the cost of meat, fish, even vegetables is so high now it's no wonder there are strikes for increasing the minimum wage. At this rate, the average person will have to create a kangkong pond in their garden to be assured of some form of sustenance. It's ridiculous. I can go on and on but I think i'll just stop here. I am so frustrated!
