Re: how do I tell him I'm leaving?
I am sorry to hear that any woman is being abused physically or mentally. You have explained this nicely, so read your explanation again and LEAVE him - don't turn back. You will be able to care for your child much better if you feel better. He is pulling you down to the point where you feel worthless and useless. You must love yourself, but you are not when you are allowing him to treat you in such way. Don't be afraid that future will be hard - it may seem that way, but you will be able to get on your feet and feel better. Trust me. I've been through similar situation. The longer you wait the harder it gets to make your move. Be brave.
