My mother is in jail. However, she deserves to be there, so I do not think I could offer much in the way of support!
My father has also served time, but cleaned up his life a long time ago and stopped breaking the law. Unfortunately my mother never did.
I do not have any issues admitting to this, I grew up with the stigma as well, and I just decided early on that my parents faults would not define me.
I am sorry if you are having a hard time coping with your loved ones incarceration. Hopefully, even though it's a weight loss centric website, Sparkpeople can offer you what you are looking for.
Just keep reaching out. Even if there aren't many people in the same situation, I am sure many will be able sympathize.
