In Love With "Life"

I'm new to this particular group. I belong to a couple others though
and these groups are great support.

Well just a little of what's going on in my world. I'm
homeless and living in my car. Im job hunting every day, all day.
I'm in a severe depression and fighting to keep my sanity. But, through all of this I am in love with someone in Prison, and have been for 18 years now.

Well my Andy is incarcerated in the VA DOC with a sentence of Life plus 43 years. been there since he was 16. It's been 17 going on 18 years now. I am so tired.  He's been up for parole several times now and of course he's still getting denied with the answer "The serious nature and circumstances of the crime". He has a life sentence, but I still have hope because he does get to go up for parole at least. He was incarcerated before 1995 when VA passed the "no parole" law. I know some people call me foolish, but I just think that I'm still holding on because Im a hopeless romantic and I still believe that one day I'll have my fairytale.

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello. I hope that everyone is doing well
and being strong.

Have faith you and do many other women are such an inspiration stay strong it's a beautiful thing that you are holding on to x

I commend you...hold tight to God & he will see you through..

Life is such a hard thing to deal with. I have a hard time coping with the ten years Todd has been sentenced. I admire your strength and courage. Love knows no boundaries and we don't choose who we love. The fact that you love him unconditionally means true love and anyone who looks down on that is a fool
