Can anyone give me any advice on how to get into a refuge?

Emotionally abusive relationship, ( has been physical on occasion) but for some reason I can't stay away from him.

I need a clean break, I need a fresh start. I need help sad

Are you safe at the moment OP?

thelaststraw123 Mon 18-Jun-18 13:46:47

I think so as he's disappeared off in a huff again because shock horror I said I didn't like the way he treats me

I’m glad you’re safe, and I’m glad you’re making plans to get away from him.

i just feel so upset that it's come to this. I've tried so hard to be what he wanted and he still treats me like shit. I've been with him for 3 years. Lost family, friends because of it and I still stayed with him. I feel so stupid

Have left a message with the helpline. Hopefully they'll call back soon. I just want to get on with it now

Do you have children? Have you any family you could stay with instead?

thelaststraw123 Mon 18-Jun-18 15:05:17

No family to stay with. My children are currently living with their father as it was deemed unsafe for them to live with me. That's why I am doing this. Been a real wake up call and I need to get away from this situation

Well done for realising you need help to get away
