The emotional pain of false arrest, imprisonment, or even just being accused is intense. During the first few months of the ordeal, you are especially vulnerable to physical distresses, as well. Anxiety can weaken your immune system, making you susceptible to many types of illnesses. Common ailments can include insomnia, sudden loss of weight or hair, ulcers, diarrhea, rashes, and loss of interest in sex. Some people drink or smoke more and/or become irritable, withdrawn, and isolated.
What you must do now is to develop an understanding of the injustice that has, and may, occur (step by step) so that you are no longer puzzled or distraught by it. Accept the fact that the system operates in practice differently than the way it is supposed to work in theory, or differently than the way you believed before this happened to you. Try to patiently explain and show others so they can eventually see the injustice.
These injustices can put an understandable strain on your family. Pressure may be put on you to take the easiest way out, no matter what the truth is. This is normal. Be prepared for the pressure so you can react constructively.
