    Have you told him how you feel?  You say that you have hurt him emotionally, and he has been let down by others.  If the relationship is to survive you need to talk to him so that you can work through your problems and move forward.

    Regaining love and trust takes time, sometimes they can be regained, but not always.

    shepemum ive told him how i feel i have severe anxiety and i do know that he can't help what he says but the thing we have both said have cut deep im on a low income and he expects me to buy him blu rays all the time and when i buy things for myself he flies into a rage cos i dont tell him if i buy something for myself .

    i have a home to run too as well im on benifits due to ill health and mental health issues plus im visually impaired. i will talk to him but i dont know how to deal with this whole situation

    May be come up with a budget where you buy something for him and then something for you, or leave it until you can afford something for both of you.
