Not really....he knows I have done some card swaps in Elsa's inmate card projects and does NOT like it . He thinks I'm tough and can handle this on my own. I wish lol. I probably could, but it makes time pass much better knowing I have a comfortable place called PTO

Yes he know but it was kinda weird for him to understand how many of us talk about anything all he said was "try not to get too involved in someone elses problems, cause we already have our own" lol but he's glad I can talk to someone and express my feelings besides him I love PTO!

Yes he knows , I don't think he realizes how much I'm on it though . He doesn't like me reading ones after the relationship is over , he says it feeds into my worrying lol .

My husband knows and Likes that I get support. I talk about things I have learned and what we talk about all the time. I even plan to show him the site when he does get home.

I just told him today and at first he thought I was emailing other inmates. Haha but once I explained it he thought it was kind of cool. He just said not to let everyone else's problems bring me down

It's good having and giving support and he totally agrees. Several of us wives and/or mothers have touched base with each other by scheduling our visitations on the same day at the same prison or accidentally bumping into each other on visitations and then come home and find a note on PTO from someone who understands the shoes you are walking in. You Ohio folks ROCK!!! My loved one appreciates this site as well due to the good resources and help that has strengthed us through our family ordeal.

LOL Tell him Prison Wives is the TV cable show. Also they are on yahoo and you can talk to some of them online as well. Very nice women....and one man. Normal average folks going through tough times just like the rest of us. We are all here for each other. There is always strength in numbers and knowledge.

We don't hide anything. He knows that i post on here and that it has a great place to ask for help and to brag. He knows that I have also met people (other women) on here that I talk to regularly, on and off of PTO. He is supportive.

totally agree with this one! I put "sort of", because I told him a TINY bit about some of the forums I go on, but I don't say the name. And that's because he's still in county and so I can't talk about his case, and on here try to be as really vague as possible by not mentioning the details of his case. Even still, I don't even want the prosecutors or anything coming to this site to see if there is anything that they could find guilt in. Do NOT wanna take that risk at all! I'm sure once he gets to prison though, I'll tell him specifically the site. But he is glad too that I talk to other women about this. Also I watch prison documentary shows like Lock Up on msnbc to help me feel closer to him. =)

i told my fiance' that i found a support group online and i go on and read what every1 talks about. he was glad, happy & said he loved me. then when i joined the other day, i told him now i'm a member so i can reply to posts and make my own. he laughed & was even happier. told me he loved me again. he's sooooo cute. lol

Yes, but he doesn't want me talking about him personally as he doesn't want any information about his case out here in case he gets an appeal. I can understand that and told him I don't talk about his case, just that he's innocent

Oh, yes. Marty knows all about PTO. And, what a small world it is when the ex finds PTO, too. It's all good.

Mike Knows. and Is glad that I have a place I can go to for the support that I need that I'm not getting from my family exactly. He also asked me to bring him on here when he gets out so he can check things out.
