Since I arrived in Mineo, all I do is walk in circles. It’s like we’re in jail here. For two months we’ve been told that we should get our papers soon, but nothing happens. Time is passing by and I don’t even know how my family can feed themselves or survive without me. I can’t stop thinking about them and it makes me really ill. Sometimes I am so worried that I can’t eat.
