Unhappy Intro--LyndonBee from Colorado

Hi all!

I'm new to the forums and to this life, I guess.

My older brother was sentenced last week to 4years to Life for a SO but it sounds like it's highly unlikely he'll ever get out. I have a lot of mixed emotions right now-- as one of his former victims I feel he deserves to be in there, but I am absolutely heartbroken and devastated for my family, and feel guilty for feeling like he deserves it. I have been looking for some sort of closure on this situation my whole life, but this is never what I wanted or expected.

My brother also has some developmental delays that I fear will make prison very difficult for him to survive- he's in the DRDC right now and I can only hope they will place him in the best possible facility to keep him safe and appropriately medicated.

Anyway, I'm glad I found these forums as I am looking forward to a community of support and other people who might understand the complex emotions I am feeling right now. Thanks for having me!

Welcome. I see fbopnomore sent you to some of the other helpful forums already. I think you'll also find that so many have "issue" with resolving within themselves that you love someone but hate what they did. It is something only you can learn how to accept and come to terms with. I'm sure you'll find some help here!!
