Hello my friend..
Well, I'm sorry that you're going through such a crisis. I know that's hard. I'm going to offer you just a bit, because I don't know much about
your situation, but I'll offer what I can. Firstly, go to the Bible. I don't know if you're a Christian, but the answers truly do lie within.
Secondly, if you think you might end up going to jail, I would highly recommend getting a book called WE'RE ALL DOING TIME by a fellow named Bo
Lozoff. He is sort of a modern day guru that felt a calling to help prisoners with their time by trying to allow them to understand that you actually
chose the time you're spending, so instead of thinking of your time as forced imprisonment, you view it as a time of spiritual respite, and instead
of thinking of yourself as a prisoner, you view yourself as a monk. It has helped a lot of people, and instead of coming out of jail worse (which so
often happens), people have come out MUCH better than they went in; spiritually advanced, at peace, helpful to others.

2) Minimize your TV watching and NEVER care about what is on the tube. If you choose to watch TV, just watch whatever is on. The TV is a point of
3) Never gamble in jail! Never! Nuff said.
4) Don't trade food, eat what you're given and be satisfied. Trading food gets slippery, and never find yourself in another person's debt.
These are just some pragmatic considerations. Hey, I'll keep you in my thoughts. Remember, this too shall pass.
