I understand I should contact womens aid directly but everytime I think about doing so, i get a surge of anxiety.
So all I’m after is your opinion please as it will in still some courage within me to take the next step.
I have a (detail removed by moderator) and his father and I are no longer together although we visit for him to bond with baby.
Currently I am living with my parents who have a very traditional mindset and my son is born out of wedlock. Everyday with my parents is torture, the emotional and mental abuse is unbearable for me and I want to go.
Today I am at my son’s fathers home and due to go back tomorrow however my mother has called me and given me an ultimatum that I either break all contact with the father or I break contact with them.
At this point I do not want to go back to that he’ll hole and the father does not want me here too.
Will anyone help me? I want to run away somewhere away from these troubles altogether and start new. I need a roof over me. On these grounds, can I get into shelter?

Welcome to the forum. I hope you find it a supportive place to be. Every refuge is run individually and they make decisions on whether they can accept someone into the refuge or not. Domestic abuse is abuse from a partner or family member and you have described the abuse from your parents. The National Domestic Violence Helpline can help you look for a refuge space, you can call them on 0808 2000 247.
Take care and keep posting
