Hmmmm, that's interesting and I'm really sorry to hear that. From afar, here in the U.S., I would have thought China was a happier place, but your post got me seeking the latest happiness rankings:

I dunno how accurate these rankings are. I would have expected the U.S. to have plunged quite a bit over the last few years, but it lists us as #18, ahead of Spain, Italy, France and Slovenia, which surprised me.

But China was way down at #94...hardly ahead of Venezuela and the poor African countries. I didn't know.
