Default Intro--Broostine from the United Kingdom

Hi everyone,

I'm completely new to being the 'prisoner's wife' and it's a very scary and lonely time for me.
It's nearly been a month since my husband was sentenced and sent to prison and, so far, I think I've been coping really well. I am 19 years old and I have a flat to look after and a kitten (at this point and time I'm so glad I don't have the responsibility of children as I would just buckle under the pressure of it all).

Please introduce yourselves to me, even if it's just to say hi. It really helps to speak to someone who knows what you're going through.

Hi, I'm Gina and Im from the UK too. I joined this site today for the same reason as you - support! It's comforting to know you're not alone. Im 9yrs in with my partner and we've still got another 15-18yrs to go!
Sorry to hear you're finding things hard right now and I hope you find some comfort and strength here x

Welcome to Prison Talk. Having a loved one in prison is hard, especially at the beginning. Stay strong and remember that this will end. Good luck.
