Hi Andrea, I'm sorry he is hurting you. Sometimes the old saying "we always hurt the ones we love" really does ring true. He is probably venting all his anger, sadness, feelings of being helpless for his mum, fear of the unknown with her diagnosis etc all on you because he deep down knows that you will in the long run, be there to catch him when he falls, and forgive him. I hope he finds it within himself soon to start treating you a little better, but for now I'd say he needs some "time out" and space. Txt every now and then to let him know you are there,, that you care and are there to listen. He will come around. But it will also be an up and down rollercoaster ride along the way, so don't expect him not to vent on you again. Lots of love and Luck. Mihalo
