Been a while since I've been on here. I recognize a few names but a lot of new people. I'm not going to go into my back story but just know that in no way in hell am I back with James.
My boyfriends son has landed his butt in TDCJ and I've been helping them both navigate through the insanity. I figured I'd swing by here and say hi to some old friends. I'm in the process of completing my Masters in Social Work, so I am a APA format paper writing fool these days but I am good and groovy. ✌

It's already funny being on a different side of all this so to speak. I am going to put up a Profile for my "Step-son", I figure it will be a nice thing to do for him, give him a chance to talk to people he wouldn't've met otherwise. Going to spend the $50.00 and do it the right way as opposed to whatever nonsense people seem to be posting on the forum for free. He just got his Unit assignment and TDCJ # last Monday so he's barely in the system yet. He is in Beto, of all the ironic places for him to be. Thankfully not in the same Unit as dorkwad, I would have been a bit worried. He's only got a 2 year sentence Max. and will probably be out on Parole before the Ad expires. He had a chance to go to SAFP but blew that off, huge disappointment. It all revolves around his alcoholism. Me and his Dad hope that this is a wake up call for him and that he turns his life around. I don't want him to end up spending decades in prison, it's a terrible place to be. I guess we'll just have to see how it goes.

Hey Nat, I recognize you, it's ShadeyBiz here! I remember your trials with James, I'm glad to hear you've moved on from that, and you're doing awesome with your Masters in Social Work, go girl, I'm actually also in school now, 3rd year of 7 in a split corrections and criminal justice program (NO IM NOT IN LAW SCHOOL, lol)... omg APA me to death, lol...yay for us! Sorry to hear about your stepson going to prison and that's nice of you to put up a profile for him, I hope someone nice will keep him company as we all are trying to do here! Take care and best wishes!

I remember reading the thread about you and your ex before I joined the forums in the beginning of 2018. Yeah, I did some lurking around actually before joining in.

Your story, though not having a happy ending (for you it had, biut not for the two of you) was one of those which encouraged me to give WAP a try. By now I do have several pps (the first one's even been paroled by now) and I wwant you to know that regardless of the results in the end, for me it has been the openness of ppl like you and others that has been the most inspiring on this journey.

I'm sure you'll continue to be an inspiuration, in whatever form you may choose.

Take care and THANK YOU - sometimes you touch ppl's life in a way you don't even know.

Greetings from Germany,
