I’m a 37 year old mother of 6

Hunt, Rosalinda



I'm a 37 year old mother of 6, wife of a institutionalized convict. Married 11 years he's been home 2-3 years of the 11 years. I myself just recently began to rebel now I find myself here in the Fresno County Jail doing 16 months for posession of a firearm. I now fit the quote "Your not doing time alone". Meaning my husband, considering you feel like your locked up, if married to a person who stays incarcerated. I married him knowing he was a criminal, with the hopes and of course that prison promise of one day changing. I never put him down and was his support as long as I could bear his incarceration/vacation times. Our children still see him as their super hero because I never down talk him. He's daddy and he's awesome. Until now..... The tables have turned I am no longer that hard working 2-3 job holding mother and wife I once was. I am now a convicted felon facing a prison term for the first time in my life and to my surprise the convict in my life is calling me names even to our children, like you ain't shit, you fu**en dumb ass so on and so forth. Mind you he's finishing some federal time and close to coming home. My question to you the reader and the rest of the world?..... How should I respond? Do I? Or do I continue my everyday living and act like what he says doesn't affect how I feel? When the tables have turned..... What would you do?..... How would you feel?
