Default It's not heartache forever.

This website has showed me a lot, and all the support and advice.
My little brother is in prison, all though it's not what I want it's our new reality. It doesn't get easier but it becomes easier to deal with. I hurt everyday, but getting those phone calls, and letters mean the world to me. This saved my brothers life and we both realize it. Thank you to prison talk for helping. It helps me to know there's lthers that feel the same way.

its not ever easy but it does get better. Truly.
And I'd agree, phone calls, letters, cards......all help a great deal, as do visits if possible.

Your brother will have opportunities about how he serves his time.
Hopefully he will spend it productively.
It sounds that he's getting some of that by realizing he was going about things all wrong, and hopfully he will change.
Im so glad that you can keep in contact. It helps everyone deal.
Your a great sister. He's a lucky guy!

My little brother is in prison also. He's a lifer - signed a plea agreement for 112 years to keep his wife from getting arrested and kids put in foster care. It's hard - he's been in the SHU for 2 months now. He's close enough now I've been able to visit every month, but he will be moved somewhere sometime in the near future (he's in SHU pending transfer). It's so hard to leave him at the end of visitation. Good guy just made mistakes and was young when he signed plea agreement. I miss him everyday and pray for him several times during the day.

Some things never really change when it comes to the prison life. I've never gotten use to it, I just knew that I had to accept it and make it a point to see the good in the situation each day. I say that regarding my older brother, Vernon,who has been inside for 31 years now in California.
In a way, it's harder for someone who has never been to prison to cope with the situation of a sibling being locked up. To some degree it's a matter of being on the outside looking in. Fear of the unknown can plague your thoughts on many days.
I have to learn to take the situation one day at a time and stay in the moment, the here and now.
