    Default having problems..someone PLEASE help..lol


    ok well heres a little good news. i got my plane ticket. i leave this thursday morning! i have a hotel and everything else worked out, i see brian on monday and fly back that night (i have a lot to take care of up there between fri. and mon.) anyway i have some bad news. as some of you might know by my postings, im still in college. ((paying for it myself)) and have been living in my own apartment. ((and paying for a nice car)) this all adds up, right? so im moving back in with my parents for the next year, so i can save up some money.

    problem: they hate brian...

    so pretty much, as of right now, he can no longer write to me. i was talking to him and unless i find a way to have him mail the letters to someone else, then have that someone take them out, put them in a new envelope and mail them to me..im pretty much screwed. brians devistated. we talked about it for a while tonight. i need some ideas...a solution. i need something. PLEASE help me guys...

    leave me something here, or you can always email me at xxuntilf0reverxx@aol.com

    i really appreciate your thoughts and suggestions!

    Hi Elizabeth,

    do you have the possibility to rent or buy a post office box? Or maybe he can write the letters post restante and you can take the letters from the post office then.

    So go to a diffrent post office.... where there is a will, there is a way. I feel your plight, but dont be discouraged. As hard as it may seem right now, things will get better, and of course, not everyone is going to be accepting of your relationship, been there done that. It is harder though, when it comes from people you care so much about. I wish you the best, and of course, think of how great it will be to see him on your visit! *smiles* Take care of you, and try not to get too discouraged.

    Maybe you have a good friend, someone you trust, who can receive the letters for you? Or is this a real stupid question??? They don't even have to send Brian's letter to you, you can just pick it up at your friend's house...

    All of the post to you are full of good advice. I might add that here in CA, not sure about elsewhere but the sending of mail to another from an inmate can cause mail from you to be cut off. Ever heard of mail box etc, postal place?? There are other places to get a mail box.
    While your family may hate the man you write, mail addressed to you to the house is your right to receive and it is a federal offense to tamper with mail.
    Am sure you love parents but you are an adult and need to talk this out or at worse rethink the benefits of living under thier roof.

    Another idea is if you don't want to go to another post office in fear of your uncle having friends who work at the other post office is this. Why not go to a place called "Mail Boxes etc" and there's also another place called "Mail and More". These 2 places rent out post office boxes there and you can have your sweetie mail his letters to you that way. This will be alot easier to do than trying to find somebody else to intervine between letters or using the regular post office and having your uncle being on your case about it.

    thanks for all of your posts. i appreciate all of them. but pretty much this is how it goes. before i moved out we had been doing this. he was sending the mail to a friend of mine and she was forwarding it to me. he was doing it for over a year, so pretty much im guessing in michigan you can do it. as for rob's reply...they dont "tamper" with it..they just throw it away. and when they have had numerous restraining orders put on him in the past 3 years, they can pretty much do what they want. i'd have to explain it all for it to make sense, but i dont have the time and im sure no one wants to hear it. there is no "reconsidering" about moving back in with them. sure, i can stay in my apartment...and drop out of college. and that idea just isnt flying for me. anyway im giving a few friends a few days to think about this, i pretty much told them i would send them money for stamps and envelopes and all that good stuff...so yeah. other than that, im out of ideas. oh, and the idea of the mail box etc was a GREAT one...i looked it up online, nothing in this area. IM HAVING GREAT LUCK (LOL)

    anyway im still accepting ideas, and appreciate them greatly. who knows, perhaps one of you guys could help me. lol. take care everyone.

    Don't give up your home and education for this man. He and his family sound like real losers.
