Our expert says:
You sound like a very nice person, who has managed remarkably well despite physical handicaps and problems in life. Your husband sounds massively insecure, over-controlling, and unable to trust you because he has such a pathetically low opinion of himself. You are not worthless at all, but gosh, he has worked hard and long to convince you that you are. Yoou DO deserve love, respect and trust from him. That you haven't is because he can't give it, to anyone, not even himself, but because there's any reason why you don't deserve it --- you do. Feeling worthless himself, he tries to cope by pushing that awful feeling onto you. Counselling could help you ; he's probably too insecure and scared to be able to dare to face counselling himself, even though it could help him, too.
