JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Ellen: I mostly kept to myself. But there was one that
just thought she was going to try and be a bully.
I kept walking away I tried not to bump heads
with anyone since I was pregnant.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Ellen: I walked away, I asked to be put on another
floor, and they refused too. They said since I
was pregnant I had to just try and stay put. I
have a temper that I was not trying to bring out!
It was getting more and more impossible to keep
my temper under control
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Ellen: I was never allowed to choose my cellmates. I had
quite a few cell mates in the time I was there.
Some where mean and some where actually
manageable to stay with!
