Default My MWI is on lockdown at FCC Victorville

Got my call today which has me wondering when I will hear his voice again, said going on lockdown so dont worry and just remember I love you. Anyone else have mwi or anyone at FCC Victorville? Now I am pacing the floors, I know that alot of gf and wives dont get to talk to theirs much and some none at all, I have got to learn to prepare for or learn to accept it happens and could be worse.

is it just him that's going on lockdown or the whole prison? if it's the whole prison you can always call & they MIGHT be able to tell you around how long it will last, depending on the mood of the person who answers the phone or if they even know.
just keep writing letters & lots of them :] when my fiancee got moved he was on lockdown for almost 4 months. we were still allowed visits(non contact). i just made sure i wrote him lots of letters, made him pictures, my son would color him pictures from coloring books, sent him cute song lyrics or quotes i would find. whatever you can do will help make it easier on both you & him.

I am sorry.. lockdowns are the worst! It does give you a chance to get creative with mail. You can send puzzles etc... We have some wonderful creative ideas on the site

It sucks. My fiancé is on lockdown 24/7 u till he gets out in August. It's been this way since sept. We have only been able to have 1 phone call and it was for 3 mins on speakerphone while the CO sat there listening to the conversation...it sucked. I cried for 3 hours after. Hopefully ur man gets out of lockdown soon.

Aaaaaw, been there, done that and it sucks! My BF was on lockdown for ten days or so once, but I kept emailing every day and he said he got so happy when they finally let him out and he saw all my emails. I also sent him emails and cards but he didn't get them till the lockdown was lifted! So yeah, you should write away, I'm sure your BF will be so happy to see how much you thought of him during the lockdown. And you're lucky, at least your BF could give you a heads up, right?!

I don't know if it varies by state but i know where i'm at it's illegal for them to hold an inmates mail over a certain amount of days. even if there's something inappropriate they have to tell the inmate & ask them whether they want to return to sender or throw it away.

Very rough day, and just thinking it could be so many more and I know there will be, I went to bed at 11, well I layed there, finally decided at 3am to go ahead and get up and finish letter. This is the first time I havent talked or heard from him since Oct and I feel completely lost, wondering whats going on, if he is ok. Him being ok is all I want to know, but when I called all they said was call back tomorrow and it could be canceled. I wanted to redial so bad but I dont want them to get ill with me and take out on him. I feel like I cant function, I went to work earlier thinking maybe I could find something about why on lockdown, hell I stayed looking for something for 8 hours nonstop and didnt find anything. Why dont they put something saying when it happens? I know I am over reacting, maybe, but I am new to it, I am tired, had no sleep, I did close my eyes for about 30 min and told myself I have to stop stressing out, he was preparing me for it so I need to do what he said to dont worry he will be fine and just make sure I keep sending him letters, cards, or whatever, to ride it out and not forget him. I think he knows I will never forget him. I thank you all for your support, it helps so much.

I'm sorry I know it hurts. I just been through it. I just talked to him last night for the first time in a month because of him being on lockdown. Even though they say don't worry it is so hard not to. We wrote letters to each other during his time in the hole. Stay strong for both of you. Im giving you a big hug ((HUG))

Thanks MsBlondie, I am trying hard to be strong, I tried to put little laughs in his letters last night and today, and tried to in the 100 email I sent last night until now, everytime I laughed but then just had to cry, I try ti hide it from whoever is around me but I dont think I did so well today. But thats just one day. You had a month, I hope that I can be as strong as you with completely falling apart. Thank you!

You are strong and have more strength than you realize. I had my moments when I felt I could not hold it together but I did. I would think of talks we've had that made me smile and I would look at his pictures. Hold on to the good thoughts and know he is thinking of you too it helps.

My babys prison been on lockdown for about 2 months now. But they are starting to let them out of their cells more often now. He can go back to work now too. We can do mail of course. They just recently started letting them use the phones when they are out of their cells. They get out for about 2 hours each night. So I get 1 to 2 calls a night.

i know it's easier said then done but don't worry about if he's okay or not. he is fine. he actually has more chances of being fine during lockdown because he is away from general population.

I keep telling myself not to worry, I try to keep myself as busy as possible, and email and write to him nonstop, I know he prob has atleast 150 or more emails, he is going to love that, lol. I think I have slept a few hours since he called and told me. Your Sunshine has been lockdown longer so I know it worrys the crap out of you, but I did call and asked if anyone was hurt and they said no nothing to worry about so thats good news, and said should be cancelled this week.

I try not to worry... but can't help myself. As much as they say no one is hurt.... would they really say if someone was???
I sent him emails everyday... long ones... short ones...he will be bombarded with all kinds of emails!!! lol
I just hope that they are all safe & that we get to communicate with them soon. ... I just been on edge all week I need to relax!
