      This is my first post.
      I am living with an emotional abuser. I can’t see a way out but I haven’t completely lost hope.
      I feel one day I will be free from the control and abuse.

They won’t tell you what to do, but can discuss your situation and signpost you to other support that’s relevant for you. You can access the chat service here:

      Hi I’m new to hear trapped in a home me and vile partner owns.. it’s so hard when people think you can just get up and leave.. it’s not that simple and then your in a tough war with your own sanity .. I deserve better I shouldn’t be leaving ! Selfish men only stay so they can control you even more inside your home. Stay strong .. we’ve took the first big step by reaching out for support.

      Hi Remaininghopeful,

      Welcome to the forum.

      You may think that there is no way out but you might be surprised.

      You have recognised the abuse for what it is and you have reached out on the forum. You are already taking the first steps towards your exit plan.

      You can try to contact your local domestic abuse charity and ask for a keyworker. They can talk you through your options, one step at a time and support you through this journey.

      Hi Remaininghopeful
      Well done, you have made the hardest step today, we are all here for you, and understand what you are going through 100%
      Eggshells is absolutely right, have a look for your local womens abuse centre too, mine is really helpful, and your GP if you feel it may help.
      Best of luck
      Take care x*x
