has anyone been to a womens refuge?

Im in a very violent relationship, I have been married 11 years and my husband has gradually got worse with the control and he uses both emotional and physical violence, my only option is a womens refuge, but Im very frightened as I just dont know what to expect,I will have to leave my local town where I have lived all my life and take my children with me, some one who has had a similar experience pls help.

    No, I have never been in that situation.

    But here is an ivillage forum link that is dedicated to support for people who are leaving abusive relationships.

    They should have more answers for you.

    Best of luck. Stay safe.
