I think the whole thing is hard on everyone. It's hard to have a girl when you're locked up and it's just as hard to have a man who is locked up. It's hard on both people in different ways. Some people choose to handle it and some do not. Everyone is different. Either way it's not easy.
Tina is spot on! My husband knows how to do time...no denying that, he knows how to live in prison. But learning to live in prison worrying about a wife and family at home was totally new to him and a very hard new way to do time.
And sometimes a good woman sticks by her man for years while he's inside, writes and visits and send money...and he leaves when he gets out anyway.
Brandon, what was the point of this post? Where were you trying to head with it?

It can be hard having a girl while your locked up. Sometimes they drop off on the writing tip, sometimes they don't visit. Yet, sometimes they're waiting for you the day you leave them gates behind.
Now talk of a blog aside, this would be my question to you....
What can you share here, specifically, about being a man in prison having a relationship with a woman (man as Inmate as opposed to outmate) and what that's like for you?
Posted here in the forum, please, and not as a lead-in teaser to a blog post.....

Brandon Wright. Where were you incarcerated and for how long? I have been with my lifer for 3 years now. I am totally in love with him and he is totally in love with me. It is hard everyday. Expecially now that we are both older..in our late 40's and we tend to think about things differently. I worry about him every minute of everyday. I think the hardness part is the feeling of such helplessness.. the helplessness with so many situations.

Brandon, you might try coming back and responding for a change. Looks like most of the threads you start are abandoned by you. My experience is that if people ask questions, and the OP never responds or returns to the thread, people will eventually tune you out / ignore your threads in the future.
Just food for thought. Actual paragraphs don't hurt either..
