Default Reception time 45 days? 4-6 months?

I finally got a chance to go see my girl last Sunday. It was a HUGE relief. She is doing great for her situation and although she is still in reception, and behind glass I was glad to get the time with her. I did get confused though. I am seeing and hearing conflicting time frames depending on who I talk to about the reception length.

Is the time to get "over the wall 45-180 days or is it 4-6 months?

It's always one or the other it seems in all my research.

Whats anyone's experience with the time it takes to get classified? She doesn't have a serious violent felony. I heard those are definitely longer to classify.

Thanks

It just depends on when they have a bed open up.
One that has her *level*

I know its different for the women, and everyone has a different answer but the real answer is...whenever she's been *classified* and they have a bed available for her.
Sorry not much help here.

Most of the women I've known have gotten "over the wall" in 2-3 months. 45 days is possible but is a bit faster than normal in my experience. 6 months is an extreme and usually is more the case with high-level men than with the women.


2-3 months to get classified, sorted, and put in her "home prison" is most likely.

I would've thought women would get through it faster. I advise men that it's 4-6 months because of the volume and staff turnover. I was hoping that wasn't true for the female side.

Are you back Stateside yet? Planning an oh-so-lovely glass visit?

Itís walk in Sundayís only.

Iím there at 7:30 and wait in a line of cars at the gate. Then we park and wait standing at some stupid wheelchair ramp.

Then till 9 we wait outside the office in chairs.

Then till 10 we wait inside the office in chairs

Then we do some search and sign a book.

Then walk to the visitor building and wait at the window.

Most efficient one so far she was at the window 10:32am

So all in all itís 3hr shuffle to get to her. I could come later but I donít wanna be back in line as it would cost me time anyways. Iím really learning patience these days. I wonder how the DMV will feel now that I have this new superpower of waiting.

***I wonder how the DMV will feel now that I have this new superpower of waiting.***


LOL. True!!


Interesting that the visits for reception are just walk in's. I had to try to make an appt. VERY frustrating. I only managed to get into see him while he was in reception for like......2 maybe 3 times?
then he went mainline and was over 5 hrs away.
So glad this crap is over.


And its true. You learn to be patient.

Yeah the first time I went I had made a vpass appointment for Saturday. They took me aside and said that they don't do Saturdays. I'm sitting there with a confirmation number and paper, they said go home and just do a walk in on Sunday. You only get Sunday for 1 hr behind glass.

I want to get her past this stage so bad, It is tough, I have been 4 or 5 times I cant remember now. Were both really tired.

My stress is max. I keep thinking that it will slow down and get regular. Nope. Just so damn severe. And now I'm far past the point I can even talk about it without disgusting myself. I am now almost to the point I don't even want to post or write about it anymore.

Damn. That REALLY sucks. I don't want to count days at all. But I haven't had a hug or held her hand in a year now. Its just tough as it gets! I am knowing that the more time goes by the less chance they are going to give her a program like fire camp or CIW. I gotta force myself to stop worrying, its not easy. She has a MUCH better attitude about it than I do. She is a freaking soldier. I'm some kind of cupcake.

Look at the positive - she's in good spirits and you can still see her.
I wonder what my man looks like these days..
Its not easy to not worry but I'll say the words I hate most from my man "It is what it is" Why worry over something we simply cannot change?

I am a super logical guy. In my "real life" i live in the absolute logical. I find security in making choices that side with reality and gravity and science and logic. I find the shortest path, the most workable solution, everything is based on efficiency. I am meticulous in my daily decisions based on all that. But one thing that is a Achilles heel for me is this situation. Nothing about it makes sense and its like all the logic goes simply out the window. I don't know what the hell but its an uncontrollable aspect of my life. The pain and stress and everything just I cannot manage it. I have been trying everything. I went to a counselor, drank, hobby's, overworked, travel, EVERYTHING and its like nothing works. I tried good and bad things the same and nothing helps hahaha

I'm settled out of bad things and just became a work-a-holic really. I also have a sort of fear that when she comes home I will be so entrenched with work that I will not be able to loosen the strings on that and our relationship will suffer.

**"It is what it is"***
Yep. I have a *decorative wood plaque* that says this and its proudly displayed.


**Nothing about it makes sense and its like all the logic goes simply out the window.**


EXACTLY. I got that pretty quickly, but the problem was trying to let the stupid crap go. To try not to obsess over it, to try not to get angry or upset..To understand that it wont make much sense, its not *fair* and I dont get to make the rules.
Hence, the IT IS WHAT IT IS, mantra.

Yeah well spoken.

Crazy thing is she’s still in reception but her date moved 13 months early to feb2020. Now I bet they don’t even want to bother taking her from reception. So I am wondering if I will be behind glass another 5 months.
