Interview with Katie

JM: Did you find it difficult to get along with other inmates? Please give examples to explain why you did or didn't.
Katie: I found it very difficult at first to find any peace at all and getting along with others was something I had to get used to. I have never been in trouble before and I was one of the very few that was able to say that at my age(then I was 29). Most of the people you would see were in and out repeatedly and always making jokes about how good it felt to "be home".

JM: What types of things did you have to do to avoid problems or fights with other inmates?
Katie: I learned very quickly to keep to myself and keep my thoughts to myself. I would allow others to say things that I otherwise wouldn't have because I was scared to get into more trouble...(not to mention a nurse broke down the stats on just how many people are contagious and I should be careful)

JM: Were you able to choose an inmate as your cellmate if you knew one? How often would your cellmate(s) change?
Katie: In county I was given a single cell because I have ocd and I couldnt take the filth that was being cause around me in the four man cells. I could choose to have a cellmate if I wanted one but usually didn't have one
