Do this to help get rid of the financial stress. Think of the most awful and scary financial situation that might happen and write down the solutions. That way, you get it out of the way and also, the scenario you've worried about will most likely not happen but you're ready for it if it does. I know how awful it can be (long, sleepless nights) but it will work out. It takes more energy to stay in an abusive relationship than it does to leave. And yes, a shelter can help you find financial resources.
If it doesn't feel good, don't do it twice.
