“It’s an emotional rollercoaster you go through”


It’s B___ or ____ is my nickname. I’m currently in Durham Co. Jail and tell you the truth, I’m getting my life back in order. I’m in here for a simply assault & damaging property. This is my first charge in Durham (if my boyfriend doesn’t show up for court). But not my first time in jail. Since you want to know what goes on in the inside, I’ll be happy to share my experience.

When you (or 1) first get here, it’s a emotional rollercoaster you go through. I cried for the first 3 or 4 days when I got arrested. If you don’t get bonded out, you have to wait to see the judge. So my bond is $150.00 with a bail bondsman & I’m waiting to see if my friend can get me out. (The one I got the charge for.)


As you sit in here, time goes slow & you have a lot of time to think about things. On my part I choose or GOD choose me to get back closer with Him & I did, it feels good too. So I read a lot of the Bible and have bible study with my cellmate. And we laugh & joke & talk about the way we’re going to be when we get out. So it has been a positive experience for me this run & I’m going to stick to it.

The down side of being in there is, you have lockback if a person does something wrong. It’s not enough food if you don’t have $ (money) on your books. So all you think about it is something to eat. (Like me, I have no $.) You can’t sleep because it’s uncomfortable with the mat you sleep on & 1 cover they give you. It cold in here in the winter time. Also people fight & it can get overwhelming or for real it can be exciting. It can get boring because of the same routine everyday. We play card for entertainment, watch TV, talk on phone, & to each other and sleep.

So now you know what it’s like, but it’s really what you make it. GOD show me a lot being here within 1 week. Sometimes, it’s best to sit still & pray for the better. Good change is good for you. I’ll be out of here soon, next month 2-26-18 or when I get $150.00 for my bond.

Thank you & Hope you write back. I’ll tell more or come see me.
