Is there no family that could help you get on your feet at all? Either way, he will have to pay child support if you split and with the little you'd be making, you'd qualify for assistance. You might even qualify for assistance in getting that GED.
In the meantime, since he is making no effort to help you reconcile, please read about the 180. Start looking at your options and getting your ducks in a row. Don't give up on trying to better yourself. If you have some employment services places in your area, go in and ask for help. Some places will do placement testing and even help you get back into school. They can also help you look at your job applications to see if there is something in them that makes you undesirable so you can reword or improve it.
You're not worthless. Don't accept less than you deserve. You deserve a husband who is transparent and honest. His continued contact with the affair partner and her family is unacceptable. Remember to eat and drink plenty of water so you stay healthy for your child. Start doing things for yourself.
