Dear Prison Widow UK. In response to the post from Volunteer, when my partner was released from prison, that is where the support came to a grinding halt. For want of a word, visiting and writing to him in prison was the easiest part. When he came home and tried to find a job and stay off the drugs, that's where everything went pear shape and the only support probation offered was another ride in a prison van for breaching his licence. He's back inside again and I am losing the will to continue with the relationship. I think families who have loved ones with drug addictions need a lot of support.
I don't have much more to add to my email to be fair other than I feel deflated and pretty much lied to in to believing that my partner would be a changed person when he came home. Anon.
