Missing My Man Whos In Prison

My name is Tracey, I live in Brisbane, Australia. I have been going out with my man for almost a year and i love him to bits. All i can say is that Fate brought us together. I found out about his past within 3 months of being with him but thought nothing of it until 3 months ago he told me he is going in. When he went in i was so depressed and didnt know what to do but now im coping with it alot better. I dont get much support from my own family but his family is so supportive. He has been in remand for 3 months so far but it feels like a lifetime. I'm coping well with him being there but somedays i get so depressed. I write to him all the time and visit him as often as i can. I just want to talk to some people who are going through the same experience so we can support each other.

My baby just got locked up a 2 weeks ago. It feels like hes been gone forever. Hes only got 9 months but hes my best friend the only person i have to lean on. I dont know how to handle this I dont want to be around anyone cause i dont want to listen to what they have to say about it. It gets old having ppl tell you to leave the man you love. All i wanna do is sleep and dream as stupid as that sounds. Hes in my dreams and I feel like hes back with me. Even when he gets out its still hard cause hes an addict. We've been fight this for 3 years and when I think its getting better I find out that hes lyin to me and using again then he gets thrown in jail. Everytime he does it just keeps getting longer and longer. I love him cant live without him but hate him at the same time all the lies an secrets idk if itll ever stop if hell ever get better and never go back to jail and leave me again. Pretty much in a no win situation and dont no where to go from here :( plz help me

thanks guys for all your support. i dont know how long he will get but i juts hope things work out. im coping alot better now :)

Hang in there! My man's been in Remand for 45 days now and he's looking at 3 years. We've only been dating for 4 months but we have the strongest connection and have been through hell and back together, so I know I want to be with him for the rest of my life. Three years seems like nothing in comparison to eternity, but it's still so brutal to have to go through. We're currently not allowed to talk to each other according to my bail conditions, which makes it harder [but my friend recieves letters sometimes, thank God]. I write him every night too whether I'll end up sending the letters or not and it really does help. I'll often lie awake and talk to him likke he's here because it's so hard to sleep without him. I'm trying to stay strong for him and myself too, but there are times when it gets so hard and I break down. I'm currently planning to get our affairs in order, and he made me promise that both of our names would be on the bills when he gets out. Sometimes I wish I could just sit down and talk with someone else in the same situation, because although I have a couple friends to support me they can't really understand what I'm going through. Plus my family is against me even being with him. I miss John so much. Ahh. *tear*

I know how you feel. My man is just a few minutes away fro me and I can't visit him until they move him again. I haven't seen him in over a month or even talked to him over a month. My man got 4 years at 80% =(. I miss him terribly and this to is so new to me. I write him every day believe it or not it helps. It makes you feel close to him in some points. Keep doing what your doing and try to keep busy as much as you can. Most important stay strong for him, they need to know that we are strong. How long is in for?

It's good that you can visit him, I wish I could visit my man. :(<br />
