I have been in an abusive relationship in the past. Abuse fucks your brain and makes it harder and harder to leave the abuser. They undermine your executive function, making it hard to make any decisions in life, creating a generalized anxiety around everything. I know you may be in a situation where you can't leave now, but may I suggest that you start making plans to leave? You are feeling like you aren't good enough to get a job because your brain has been hijacked by abusers. If you can get away, your brain can heal. I personally wrestled with the same feelings. Once I got away, they began to go away. Probably took 5 months. You can do this. Just do it safely and be kind to yourself if it takes you a while.
