Ct laws when one is totally disabled

I have been totally disabled since 1991. We have been married since 1985. He has been having an affair since June of last year. He said he wanted a divorce but would not file. I dont think it is fair to me I have given him every chance in the world to change his mind. Seeing he wouldnt file for divorce, I did, but cant afford an Attorney so I am doing it pro-se. He hasnt given me any money since the beginning of March, I have been stuck paying all the bills and now am becoming totally broke. Will I be stuck selling the house? I received a settlement from a car accident a few months prior to purchase, I paid off bills, put money down on the house and put a lot of money into fixing it up as it was a foreclosure and needed a lot of work. No one tells you anything, I have filed for him to give me some money but it was only last wk. I thought when I filed and asked for alimony, that meant right away, until I was told I had to put in a motion. (he is if not already trying to settle a w/c injury, arent I entitled to at least part of this seeing we had to take out a 2nd mortgage because of that as well as a few other things we wanted done to the house.)
