Default middle of the night post

I am glad to see when I read other post that I am not the only one awake and posting at all kinds of crazy hours of the night!! Although this isnt' a 3 am post I'm sure with being laid off, again that there will be some tonight.

I'm here all kinds of hours since I work all 3 shifts sometimes I'm up in the middle of the night working or sometimes I'm up because I went to bed at 8 pm and am wide awake!

And the times when I'm up at 5-6 am, I've noticed that our Mlynnm has been busy all night long!

Dont feel bad mylynn, I'm here day and night. I'm always finding something new that I hadnt noticed befor. I know I would have so many unanswered questions if it wasn't for this site. I wonder once he is relaesed if I will break my bond with the site? Are there lots of people still posting upon the release of there inmate?

A lot of members stay of after their loved one's come home. MrsD is a perfect example of that. I personally never plan on going anywhere. You all are stuck with me for life!!

I wish more would stay after their loved one is home! We have a lot of staff who are still here, either their loved one is home or they are no longer connected to the system, but dedicated to PTO!

We need to stay and be here for those who are still working with the system. Its always been important for me to see and hear about the things our families that are home are dealing with.

Sadly our prison life doesn't end when they walk out those doors!!

I appreciate the moderators and all the people who keep this places running I know at time it can't be easy. I know I will be around for 2.5 more years just wish I would have found this site 2.5 years ago. I know theres lots of after coming home info on here as well.

And yes once again I am up posting. My sleep schedule is so screwed up lately.

I have made some lifelong friends here and plan on being around to support them as they have always supported me. I will always be involved with MDOC if they have their way anyway because I am in love with a lifer. I used to be a middle of the night kinda girl but not too much anymore. I hope more people stay on after their loved ones come home as well. Its all about support in the end and friendships are a strong part of that.

Well all, I haven't been really active in this forum, but I am no longer with an inmate yet I am dedicated to my family here in PTO. I may not be with my original SO, BUT I have grown to love my LASO family too. So Both MIchigan and LASO are stuck with me for the long haul too. Let me know if I can help anyone with anything. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!

Thanks, sometimes it is just better to cut the ties and move on. The situation was not good for my daughter nor me. BUT we are doing very well and we will make it through this thanks to our PTO Family. I have had MANY late night and really early morning convos with members troubleshooting different things. So I can relate to the middle of the night PTO times. LOL
