Partner facing jail
My partner struggled with an ice addiction for about a year and a half.
He is now clean and has been for around 6 months, he's doing really well now and I'm proud of him.
However he is still dealing with the mistakes he made while using the drug which included some illegal activities and almost destroying our relationship by being unfaithful.
We have managed to work through everything and are in a good place but the legal ramifications are ongoing.
He may be facing jail and we are both terrified.
I wish the judge could just see he is a good person who made a mistake, he pays for that mistake every day and will never go back.
I understand that there are consequences to all actions but i think jail will be a backwards step.
I'm really stressed out about it and cant imagine what i'll do if he does go.
Has anyone ever been in this situation before?
It is great you are seeing a psychologist already.
I do understand how important and meaningful it is to be able to communicate with people who have had similar experiences.
It must be tough having to think about the what ifs and consider what may happen at the court hearing. In some ways I understand our partner not waning to face up to the possibilities ahead. It must be freighting for him.
All the best to you both. I like Tony's idea of future plans too.

As I've not been in your situation, I can only imagine how scared you are both feeling.
Hopefully you will be able to get help and support along the way.
Please know this is a safe place to share how you are feeling. If you want to just vent and let it out, that is okay. Knowing that someone else cares can make a huge difference to how we see ourselves and our troubles.
Despite all that is happening, I hope you are both able to find things to do together to help ease some of the tension. Build up some lovely memories now. Make time to enjoy today if you are able to.
