    New to me

    I have been with my boyfriend for a year. Prior to meeting me he has a long, sad history (criminal and personal). The worst of which is he's on Megan's Law list because when he was 25 yrs old he picked someone up in a bar and turns out her ID was fake. He has had a rocky history since. The last of which was for tattooing a minor, a friend of his girlfriend at the time, they both lied about her...

    My fiance just got transferred to prison..

    I feel so empty and so alone. My fiance has been incarcerated since March of this year. He got sentenced to 5 yrs DOC in August. Today they transferred him to DOC. When he was near me it was a little easier, now that they transferred him I feel like he's been taken from my again, and my hearts been torn from my chest. Does this get any easier, when does this pain stop.?

    Hi, I wanted to share what's been going on with me. Last month my fiance had a psychotic episode in which he shot and killed a woman.
