You can understand the loneliness that we who are incarcerated can feel. I thank you for looking on this website with the possible intention of helping someone relieve their lonely feelings by offering your friendship. I hope that someone is me.
I have been incarcerated since 1983, at the age of 19. It has been a very long and lonely 30+ years. I am nearing my release date, less than two years, and I am extremely nervous about getting out. I am very aware of the enormous changes that has happened in the past 33 years, which makes me even more anxious. It is a very intimidating thought.
I have accomplished many things while incarcerated and will share them with you when you write (smile).
I am seeking sincere friends who will offer emotional support, encouragement, a sense of guidance, etc., as I deal with my emotional anxiety of reintegrating back into society.
Sincerity and honesty are two qualities I can offer and I promise no head games. I ask the same in return.
The photo is of me and the service dog I am training. Her name is Freedom. This is the fourth dog I have trained for America’s Vet dog program- each dog is trained for about 14 months, teaching them approximately 55 commands/tasks. It is a very rewarding experience to “give back” to our wounded veterans who served for our wonderful country so that we may enjoy our freedom and safety.
