Yes this site has helped me as well. Itís easy to come on here and vent lol. Your correct when you say being with my wife 15 years then all of the sudden she has to go serve time for some BS. My wife could have pled and received probation however she wanted to prove her innocence at a trial (What a Joke that was) and then catches almost 3 years..... Either way, Time is running out, we have 22 days left and sheís home free! Cant wait to get back to living and putting this roadblock behind us. Itís easy to say coming out of the other end of this but going into it was much worse.. Stay the course and watch time fly. Best thing is the clock never stops ticking..

You're good company here. Nobody's going to tell you you're crazy for sticking with your lady.

Glad you're at the end of it! You must both be on cloud 9! Wish we could be on it with you. "Trial" - A legal proceeding in which 12 people with no legal training decid which side has the better lawyer.

It desn't seem like mom did an outstanding good job of choosing guys for her in the past.

Default Youíre right Wilkes...

Cristina left home at 13 and was living on her own from then on. There was poor homelife before that. The mom is at least back in her life and they’re rebuilding their relationship. It’s a positive thing but I don’t believe it’ll ever be what I’d call excellent. Cristina and I broke up but we’re still good friends. She got very mean and demanding and it became too much for me. I still send her enough $ for shampoo, bathroom products and coffee but not like i used to. I visit about monthly and she appreciates having a stable relationship with me albeit not romantic. I’m enjoying our friendship as it is now and expect we’ll be friends for life even though the romance didn’t go exactly as planned.

I'm sorry it didn't work out the way you hoped it would. Still having you as a supportive friend has to mean a lot to Cristina. Best of luck to both of you.

Couldn't be happier for you (or more envious!). I hope her freedom's perfect for both of you.

I'm not a guy, but my spouse is in prison and the men are generous enough to let us drop in their threads now and again.

Default New worries

Have any of your ladies become ill inside? We had a real scare. My wife found a lump in her breast. It took forever for the doctor to examine her and a while for them to get her to the hospital. It's cancer but "tubular" which is apparently not a particularly dangerous type. They did a lumpectomy and sent her back. No plan for any follow up except a mammogram in 6 months. I was pretty much panicking while I waited for them to take care of her. I've never felt so helpless and useless in my life. I'm worried that she may not have received the best care. Has anyone else had that sort of thing happen?

I doubt that she is receiving appropriate followup care. She should be able to get a copy of her tumor biopsy, which you can then take to a real cancer facility for a second opinion.

Every case is different, but my wife had both chemotherapy and radiation after a successful operation. The treatment plan was done based on the probability of more disease, even though the margins were clear.

The care's generally lousy from what she's told me.

Thanks. I'll see if the hospital will let me have a copy. I'm expecting the to deny my request because (1) The information is property of the state and/or (2) HIPPA laws forbid disclosure of medical information to family members and everyone else who won't benefit from it financially.

I'm sorry your wife had to go through that. Glad she's OK now.

The HIPAA law specifically allows her to name you as someone who is authorized to have access to her medical records. The records are owned by the hospital, not by the entity that is obligated to pay the hospital. If she signs the authorization, the hospital/doctors will have to honor it, and the prison will have no involvement in that decision.

Thank you for your concern. My wife has now been cancer free for 7 years.
