Feel free to ask questions. Lots of knowledge here. I don’t know anything about his unit but I’m pretty familiar with the outmate side of TDCJ

I miss my boyfriend so much haha I am glad to have found someone to relate to as well. Not many of my friends are actually supportive of me in the long term. Iím hoping that you and your BF have a wonderful holiday!

My main question is how to cope with him being inside. It hurts to leave after a visit every time I do get the option to see him. I donít know how to distract myself from that pain I donít want to leave him there, but I assume itís like that for everyone. What would you suggest to maybe keep myself busy with for him besides the letters? I do volunteer work on the side of my actual job just wish I had more of a handle on this. Thanks for replying and I hope you and your family have a happy holidays.

Thank you!. I hope you and your bf also have a wonderful holiday!!. Well I only have two friends that are supportive of me and my bf one because thatís her brother and the other my bf found her a pen pal in there. But my other ďfriendsĒ donít really much approve. I understand where you are coming from itís so hard to leave there after a visit it feels like they are on your mind even more!. I also found my self needing a distraction from that feeling, that I ended up getting a gym membership thatís 24/7 and it does distract my mind at that moment. Do you and your bf write letters and phone calls? Me and my bf do both I enjoy hearing him it gives me lots of comfort to hear from him.
