Hello everyone. Sorry for not being on here lately. I'm really busy with school so I won't be on here for days or weeks at a time. I wanted to give you all an update about my LO. I was informed by another inmate that knows him that he's ok but he's in the hole awaiting transfer to another institution. He's still at Big Sandy for right now until they move him. Here's an update about me: School has been stressing me out already but I'm trying to do my best to make it through. It's already the 2nd week of the semester and I have 14 assignments from 3 classes that I have to do. I'm getting headaches now and it's really bothering me but I'm going to make it through this semester since I'm not going to drop out again. After this semester, I will have 4 classes left and then, I will be done with my 2nd Associate degree either Fall 2018 or Spring 2019 but I will keep you all updated. I haven't written my LO in a long while due to school and I know he must be very worried about me by now. Please keep me and my LO in your prayers especially me since I'm doing the best that I can but I really need motivation and prayers from you all right now. I also have health problems and it is not easy but I keep telling myself to think positive and to push through daily. I really hate crying every day and night. I'm 25 years old by the way. If you would like to reach me, PM and ask me for my email since that's the best way to reach me for right now. It may take some time for me to reply back but I will.

Hi ladies,
I wanted to post on the last few subjects... beacuse I have kind of for the first time ever been having problems too. I've always loved to write as I explained about the email and ya'll can tell LOL, so I frequently write very long letters, upwards of 16-20 pages sometimes of its been a while. I never had a problem ever until this last lockdown and they sent one back I had spent a long time on saying it had something on it. Just to let you know I would NEVER take the time to write a 17 page letter or anything for that matter and do something dumb. I find it so frustrating when they do that becuz ive always assumed they test every paper for drugs etc however I understand that there are new substances that are problematic and this is the reason why all this security with mail. So now i do understand that most all letters and cards and pics will just be photocopied. And yes 25 pics seems the limit with really no limit to a letter. However my fiance notices that people using pigeon only or other online services that print and send for you seem to still get color photos while others just get copies. I have signed up for pigeon just to try, although one of you said it was goving you trouble? I am truly hoping this is a temporary situation as pics keep us all close to them, but these services may be the wave of the future.
I also noted some of you havent been getting regular correspondence, and I've had same problem..he had mentioned many lockdowns thru the say and often at night. For me its really hard to not get a goodnight, I don't sleep well. Will any of you post if you don't get goodnights as well, at least Inwill put my mind at ease earlier maybe? Teamwork will help us a little during these times of lots of lockdowns and lots of rule changes. To add to it they've been snowed in one or two days with staff unable to make it up the hill to relieve shifts so that can add to the half day lockdown issues and as I said they fight terrible morning fog this time of year too so lots of little reasons we may not hear from them! Take care and keep their health and well being in our prayers and each of yours peace and sanity too) <3

I used pigeonly in the past and I liked it. Do you know if their customer service center is open today? I have money in my wallet from a while back before they switched it to monthly only and I was going to see if I can use the money in my wallet to pay for the services monthly.

Hi! Unfortunately big sandy is notorious for lockdowns..tons of mini lockdowns for a few hours and then extended ones for a few days or a week..the last 1 seems to have been the longest..about a month or so. When my husband was home before being transferred we got at least 3 emails a day and sometimes 7+ calls a day lol Now itís really hard because itís 1 or 2 calls a day & same with emails..on top of no visits because heís so far. No good nights definitely hurt..I couldnít sleep at all during the first
Month of him being gone out of state..as my husband would put it ďits Very activeĒ at big sandy therefore the cause of so many lockdowns
As for correspondence, I would assume since thereís different sections & stuff maybe some have more Day room time? Or some inmates in programs vs gen pop get more privileges? I donít know how it works..just throwing stuff out there lol
I know itís hard & is definitely lonely at times but thatís what this little BIg Sandy family is for
