JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't. Lily: not at all padilla: No Dawn: No I got along with all of the inmates. I minded
my own business while I was there. there was some
arguments between other inmates but i was able to
avoid confrontation. I was able to get along with
all of the women that came and went.
JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates? Lily: stay quiet and mind my business padilla: No Dawn: Had to keep my mouth shut really. If there was
confrontations I didn't feel the need to fuel the
fire like some of the women in there did. There
wasn't a lot of problems with the women in there
majority of us got along pretty well. we played
cards, read books, built puzzles.
JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change? Lily: yes! padilla: No Dawn: no I didn't get to choose. i ended up sharing a
cell with a woman who snored like a man so i
eventually asked if I could be transferred into
the general area.
