I recently had a person I really love dearly go to jail. He is probably going to be there for long while. I try to do other things to keep my mind off of it but, it neverworks. My head is constantly going in circles wishing there was something I could do. I have to make myself eat and I have begun to fall behind in my photography classes. I just can't get my mind to focus on my classes. I sure don't want to fell then all the loansI have to pay back would be for nothing. My heart is so broken and I don't know how to put back together the pieces. Has anyone else had to go through this and if so what should I do do get my life back together on the right track. Since I can't seem to get it done by myself I figure I might try something others have tried. Thanks in advance to all that respond. All comment arre greatly appreciated.

i have not been to this situation(and hope to never in this situation). i think i do not have much to share to you, but i will just have to let you know that you will have to show your support to him and to let him know that you can get over this trial in your life.

I remember what it was like when my brother went to jail. It was heartbreaking. I was far away because my husband was in the navy and my step father is a jerk and wouldn't let my mother get him out. He left him there to "teach" him. All that happened was my brother ended up getting beat up because he wouldn't give some guy his meal and milk! It was a stupid mistake that he could have gotten nothing but community service. I will pray for you that you can somehow get on with your life. I know you are heartbroken!
