      Admin JoJo Matthews Well you are doing the number one thing that most of us will tell you and that is keep busy. Really right now all you can do is have little mini countdowns to certain things like visits or phone calls. If anyone knows anything about time its me and my hubby as we are lifers. I have bad days and good days, been doing this for almost 5 and half years and I still can’t believe this is our life. I’m your down time the time to yourself it’s important to do things for you, like watch a funny movie, take a bubble bath, go for a hike whatever your fancy. As hard as it is you have to find your new normal. You will burn out if you only revolve your life around him. This isn’t easy by any means and never gets easier but you do find a groove. I don’t recommend a count down until he comes home yet as you will get depressed. Like I said small things visits, phone calls..

    Has anyone ever had problems getting funds into JPay? I have been trying for days to no avail. My card quits declining for no reason I called both JPay and my bank and on both accounts they can’t see an issue. Curious how it got resolved.

      Kienast Girl I always use Western Union, the money gets transferred in 1 hour and for me less issues. JPay kept refusing my card as well Western Union (knock on wood) hasn't given me any issues it is super simple to set up an account only takes roughtly 5 minutes

      Sunshine Hello ladies, I am feeling so hopeless and depressed. I met my loved one at the facility I worked at, we connected and began a relationship. We came under investigation and I eventually resigned. I now have visiting restrictions indefinitely. We have to appeal but I am Just so discouraged and sad. We do have the phone and letters. I am not proud of the things that have happened in the way they did but I love this man with all my heart. So many issues I am struggling with... waiting to hear if they are going to press any criminal charges, seeing if I am going to lose my license, and now the issue with the visits. Has anyone been through anything like this ? Also, has anyone ever had their visits restricted and then allowed to go back? Looking for support please I am heartbroken. No negative judgments please, I am doing that enough on my own!

      Kienast Girl Back when my Husband first got to Pekin I was not alloud to see him for several reasons the biggy was he put me down as his wife and we are not legally married so that a big red flag put on me and I lived with my mother and step dad at the time so the last names were different. As someone who studied criminal justice I honestly can't tell you about charges because every case is different. From what my understanding is as long as you wern't doing any illegal activity or having sexual contact or any contact (other than for your job) I don't see a reason why they would make a fuss about it especially since you took responsibility and resigned. When my Husband got locked up in Brown Co Detention it took 3 weeks to even get my paperwork processed he put me down as his girlfriend but since I was the only one with my last name living in the house I was living in major issues came up. Just keep your chin up I always tell people who critisize my husband or me "Sorry I can't help who I fall in Love with" and it usually shuts them up

      Kienast Girl Personally I don't see the point in judgeing none of us are perfect we are here to bring eachother up not beat them into the ground and like I said "you can't help who you fall in love with"

      Sunshine Absolutely and thank you! We are all in difficult situations as women. I wouldn’t trade my love for the world as I am sure most of us feel or we wouldn’t be doing this! There is an investigation still open pending closure once the DA reviews if they will pursue charges or just let it go since I resigned! I am very nervous... have never been in trouble in my life!!

    Hi all I hope maybe someone can help me out. I found out my husband is going to be away intel Feburary 6, 2026. Now everyone tells me the best thing I can do is not think about how much time they have left. I tend to keep realy busy, journaling, working two jobs and writing letters to my love. It is when o have down time that I find myself obsessing over that date. Does anyone have any suggestions on coping this. I know this is the absolute worst thing I can do. But still being new to this, I don’t yet have the skills to not.

    My fiance was incarcerated on July 18 2017 by false accusations that my sister had started that has crushed me and my household. As his preliminary hearing is approaching in 12 days I am doing nothing but praying for the best. I am praying the truth will be revealed and he will be set free. I know nothing is to big for my God. I am doing all I possibly can and it's so hard. I'm getting all the evidence up and communicating with his lawyer, supporting him in all the ways I can, and homeschooling my son and now the bills and everything is on me. But most of all even though its been almost 2 months since hes been in jail, I just can't get past the fact that he's not here. Words can't express how this has made me feel and how this has ripped apart my family. Please pray for me, my kids and my fiance and I will pray for yall. thanks and God Bless!

    There are 2 specific females that i consider friends but theyre always talkin abt oh i hope u waiting for him is worth it. Or always trying to get me to think hes messing up. Like i need them to just let me live my life. Hes been in since april 2015 the month before our son was born, and ive been nothing but faithful and loyal to him. Like why dont they want me to be happy!

    Just need to vent. So I dated my l.o 25 years ago and a year and a half ago we reconnected. We were talking every day for 6 months before he went in. Since he has been on the inside we have started dating and I'm happier than I ever could be. The only thing is my closest friends keep telling me that they don't think he will call me anymore once he gets out. He is up for parole in Oct 2017. I went for a visit (which was a 22 hour drive to see him for 5 hours) two weeks ago and I loved the time we spent together. I love my friends but then telling me things like he won't wanna talk to me when he gets out, how do I know he will be loyal to me ( we live in different provinces)just makes me over think. What can I say to my friends to get them to stop saying this stuff and making me over think.

    August 2nd-2017 will be year that my hubby got locked up... I'm beyond lost don't know what to do or where to go. He's doing an 18 yr sentence!!! For stealing a weed eater and guitar and pawning it... U'd think that he's been in ALOT of trouble to of gotten all that time. Nope!! In fact he'd only been in trouble once before. I just want him back so bad it physically hurts...

    Having a tough day, my bf is facing yrs in jail bc someone lied in their statement to avoid arrest. He is depressed and I am too, it seems so unfair that his life is ruined bc of someone else's bs. I am trying to be strong but today I just want to cry, I love n miss him so much and just want to hold him. We fought last wk bc the lawyer is a jerk and I didnt want to be the messenger anymore. This is so stressful and sad I have never gone thru this before and I'm not sure what I can do to make him feel better :( I havent been in love in a very long time and dont want to be with anyone but him. I tried leaving him and we werent together for abt a month when he got arrested, when he called I was so happy and scared bc I didnt know how I felt abt him-but when I visited him I got butterflies and felt like a teenager it was crazy! People warn me about jail talk and he is an addict so the stigma of an addict in jail makes everyone I talk to make me feel like crap for wanting to be there for him. I may be played like a fool, he cld die from his addiction, or we could work through this together and I am trying to prepare myself for every possible outcome. But I know that I have to follow my heart because there is something about him worth fighting for, I have kicked men to the curb for much less than he has put me through. I think he wld be an amazing father and husband, I want to spend the rest of my life loving him and building a happy life and family. I get scared I am delusional and have been hurt so much in the past I realize I have alot of work to do on myself as well. We are both messed up in our own way but it results in a level of understanding and forgiveness I have never experienced. I am in a PhD program and told him before his arrest that I would be ok with focusing on school while he does his time. I have been single for many years and am used to being alone, he is worth waiting for and doesnt believe me that I want to wait for him but I guess time will tell. I just wish I could do something for him and feel so helpless :( my life has been difficult and I am sick of struggling and misery-sometimes I feel cursed bc this all happened not long after we first started dating. I have known him since high school and he has always been sweet and I have had a crush on him for 20 yrs. after his warrant he started using and turned into a diff person, I think thats why I got butterflies when I saw him bc it was the man I fell in love with. This is torture, and I know its worse for him. What adds insult to injury is everyones judgemental and rude comments! Why do girls like bad boys? Hes just using you! He only cares about drugs! They don't know him and are making snap judgements, he is incredibly sweet, caring and has a huge heart. Basically just making it much worse for me, when i need love and support. Many of these ppl I have been there for no matter what and it hurts that it is not reciprocal. Love isnt easy to come by and logically this doesnt make sense but I have to at least try </3

    This week has been the hardest since my husband went to prison. He's been so angry and depressed and Tuesday night he told that he was refusing his insulin. Wednesday I tried to talk him into taking his insulin, and he said he'll think about it. I haven't heard anything from him since then and I'm really scared that now he's in a diabetic coma or worse. So upset and scared and feel so utterly helpless, and I feel like I'm on the verge of a nervous breakdown. I love him so much and don't want anything bad to happen to him.
