Prison Connection

How do I connect with others who date an inmate? I’d love to build a community of strength with other women/men and I’m not sure how to.

I want to support one another. Validate the pain. Discuss DOC and rules and regulations and the rights of the inmates.

I just don’t know anyone else interested in this topic and I don’t feel strong enough mentally to pursue a “start-up” of a new “group”. What do you even call that – a forum?

All I know is that I go insane some days with the pain and grief that I experience from missing him. It has been 2 years, now, so I try really hard to not talk about my pain with him… but he senses it in my voice. Damnit. Busted. He’s my priority so my social life and I have taken a step back from hobbies.
