They Took My Everything From Me

March 18 2012 my world was turned upside down. My boyfriend was caught with a gun in the state with the strictest gun laws in the country. I've been with this man everyday for four years. He is my other half our apartment is empty without him. On top of it all I recently found out I'm about two months pregnant. I'm not showing so I've kept it a secret from my family, he is the only one who knows. There is this aching sore hollowness in my chest. He's looking at about 4-6 years. I just managed to scrape enough money to hire a lawyer because i couldn't afford his 40,000$ bond. His preliminary hearing is this Friday and I'm just praying for the best. In a time we're supposed to be celebrating I find myself not wanting to even wake up. I don't even care about taking care of myself anymore.

yeah I found a great attorney he might just do a year. Six months with good behavior hes ganna be in there for another month until his next court date so this time he does goes towards his sentence. Im visiting him today and I CANT WAIT! Monday is the only day i can see him and just for fifteen minutes but they've become the highlight of my week. Ugh im so miserable without him I didnt realize how dependent and how my happiness relied on him

i'm sorry to hear that, my bf has been in jail for a week now, he could get out in may or could be there for a few years. I know exactly how you feel. When I wake up in the morning I just want to go back to bed. Life really sucks. is there a chance he will get less than 4 years?

im so upset and mad. I feel hopeless. Hes such a hard working good guy with stupid friends

OMG 4 to 6 years just for having a gun. im so sorry for you but i agree you need to take care of yourself and your baby i know its hard to care now but you have to stay strong. it will get easyer with time. i hope for nothing but the best for you and your baby.

Sweetheart you have to be strong for ur man in Jail and for ur unborn child. You have to take care .of urself. Its hard it definitely hard but you can do it. Just take it one day at a time. Write your man and stay busy to keep your mind of thngs abt him..Keep ya head up!
