Default How would your loved one cope if you were the one locked up?

Would it be better or worse than how you cope do you think?

I noticed that you have a lot of relational questions about incarceration. Just curious-- are you researching for something? Most of our members here have been through a lot and our primary purpose is to share support and helpful information. They are usually happy to share if they feel it is beneficial to someone else, but it's also extremely vulnerable. I'm protective of our community and like to see this sort of vulnerability reciprocated when possible. It's also PTO policy to inform members of any information that may be used for research purpose, so I'm sure you understand why I'm asking.

Honestly and FROM MY PERSPECTIVE my answer is NO, He could NEVER do what I have done, gone through etc... for the last 18 years. If I were to have behaved like him and him with my personality, HAHAHAHA we would NEVER have been. I am proud of HIM for the SERIOUS changes in his thought process and how I am personally tickled to see his smile/joy with his growth. EACH and EVERY one of us got here by bad/youthful/ignorant decisions made as is NORMAL in LIFE. I really enjoy my husband MORE now as he has matured. I have 'left' him- for him wanting to stay in the GAME HE MADE up in his mind. Watching him grow from it and become a truly NICE person IN HELL warms my heart. I am former Staff-was his 'boss', lost my job and received his "Too Much Mail bag---Catching him calling/talking to others he should not have--- 18 (EIGHTEEN) years later--- we are GREAT-GOOD & not only BEST friends/ but FABULOUS 'Husband AND WIFE'... It has not been any kind of 'easy' but THIS has sure been WORTH it ALL....

She would have forgotten my name and partied the whole time.

Next question.

Could be he's way of coping is to talk to my picture and take my picture everywhere...

but to me that is weird. borderline insanity. My picture is like his "pet rock" takes it everywhere, talks to it..i don't know its strange to me.

one time i had a visit that had to be cancelled. i was 2500 miles away. and he still got up, got dressed, and had a "visit with my picture" ....to me that is insane.

shit he says be having me wondering if he is losing his ever loving mind??

I am not sure he would cope very well at all, but then most of the time I am not coping well either. Oh, sure, the day to day business gets handled but at night the fact that something big is missing is tangible.

My mom is the one in prison. I feel like if the roles were reversed, she’d do a lot better than I have. We do the best we can, but it’s been really hard.
