Unhappy Intro--wedtodarkness from Ohio

hi all, I'm amanda. as of today my boyfriend has been in the hamilton county justice center (jail) for 12 days. this is not his first time in jail, he has been at butler county jail for a series of 4, then later 7 days.

I miss him so much, I depend on him in many ways. I've been feeling very stressed, depressed and stir crazy since he's been away, because I'm afraid to leave home and miss one of his rare phone calls. they could come anytime between 9am to 9pm. the uncertainty of how long he might be in jail or prison is killing me. he had a court date on tuesday but it ended up being moved to friday. all yesterday I felt so hopeless, I cried a lot. I just want some answers. of course, I would love if they could release him on probation. but even if it turns out he will be in jail for 1-2 years or more, I would hate it, but at least I could eventually fall into a routine. right now there is no routine, it's just me waiting around and missing him.

sorry, that was a bit more than just an introduction. :(

Welcome to PTO.

My husband was arrested in May and spent 10 days until he was released on bond and house arrest. He was there more than 72 hours before he saw a judge at all to know for a fact what would happen. We are going through the federal system and just a few weeks ago he signed an open plea.

Everyone here will tell you that the worse part of the whole process is not knowing what the end result will be. We have been in that part for more than five months now and have probably that much more to go. So, what I can tell you is this.... while it totally sucks not knowing what will happen in the end take things one day at a time; tackle one issue at a time. Take a breath to enjoy what you can in between. And most of all, stay as busy as you can!

Welcome to Prison Talk Amanda. Court postponements are frustrating, but they happen frequently. I hope you both will have a better idea of what he is facing on Friday.

Best advice now is to breathe and get yourself together. There is nothing you can do right now accept wait.

When times got quiet, I would tell myself to enjoy it because the ride will pick up soon.

You'll see postponements, adjournments, etc. We had court once a month. The week of was always the worst. Tried to make the other 3 weeks as stressless as possible.

It is a trauma and a shock. If you depended on him heavily, prepping yourself to have to do things on your own for a while is not a bad thing. Someone has to hold down the fort so to speak.
