Visiting my partner is stressing me out. Talking of money, I just can't afford to see him as often as I'd like to. Firstly I work full time and secondly I am paying our debts off single-handed which is tough going. I suppose you get a lot of these emails and when I read other articles about how important it is to maintain contact, I just laugh otherwise I'd cry. How easy it is for those to say go and visit your loved one in prison as much as you can, yet not one of them weigh up situations like mine. I am deflated with the lot of it now to be honest with you. Prison's are making it harder and harder in my opinion and by doing so, they clearly have no intentions of standing by what they say about maintaining these so called family ties.
