User :   My wife is always suspicious of me. We met a Psychiatrist an year before, we had 2 sittings, taken medicines aswell. She became allright.After 2 sittings and medication, she refused to go to the doctor. We all thought she became allright. But again she is becoming the same. She is alleging that Iam having affair with females. Whenever I go outside to restaurants, malls, driving etc, she keeps fighting with me for looking at females. Even I cannot look at Television programmes which are having female anchors. Whenever I step out of the house, she keeps monitoring whether my neighbour s door is open or not. She doesn t entertain any guest coming to our place because of females. I have suggested to consult a doctor which she is refusing. Life is miserable. Kindly suggest what to do in this case
