It's me, I've been inactive for quite a while now... I've been trying to keep my sanity afloat for the past 5 months, and today I finally broke down crying and couldn't breathe. With the political situation going on here in HK, I can't help but feel like im doomed if something disastrous were to happen. In worst case scenario, I'm a 17 year old from a working class family, where am I supposed to go?
It's not like I don't care for my city, it's just I don't feel well enough to care anymore. I feel disoriented as to what home is, school has been cancelled and I feel broken. Please help me.

It is a bad situation over there. Things have gotten out of hand. A lot of factos are playing into what is going on. The protests could have and maybe should have ended a while back. The person in charge of your Country changed her tune to begin with and stopped this whole stupid idea of extraditing people to China to stand trial. That was what the protesters wanted to begin with. But they carried on protesting. They then called for her to step down as leader. This leader of yours did say she was going to step down. But China won't allow Lam to resign. It is like a double edged sword. She steps down and China might send somebody even worse than her to take her place. I can't see China sending their army into Honk Kong. The World is watching on. Other countries would step in to stop such a move. I think Joshua Wong has to make his mind up on when enough is enough. There is only so much he and the protesters can achieve. I am sure you are staying as far away as possible from the protests. That is the best thing you can do. It can't go on forever. Those protesting have to open their eyes to what could happen. They are best off with Lam in power. We all know she is been controlled by China. There is no real second option. Somebody with a harder stance who will take no BS from the protesters and order the police to shoot to kill. Leave her in power and accept that the extraditions to China have been stopped. That was what started all this off. Take that small victory and just get on with life. Because the protesters won't gain any more. They certainly won't become free from China. China will never let that happen. Without actually sending their army in, they will continue to issue orders to the police in Honk Kong about how to deal with the protesters. There is nothing else to be won.

Hi Kelculator! I am just now seeing this - we haven't talked in a while, so I was wondering how you were doing. I didn't realize you were in Hong Kong. I know it must be impossible to feel any kind of security or safety - are you hanging in there? You okay?
