Get support 1st: Leaving an abusive situation takes some planning, and you need support for this. It's very common for people who are being abused to feel they deserve this, and to be reluctant to seek help -- but this tendency is not your friend. Check out http://www.Helpguide.Org/mental/domestic_violence_abuse_help_treatment_prevention.Htm -- lots of info there & at the bottom are helpful phone numbers, etc.
