Husband is controlling. History of alcohol abuse which

Customer Question
exacerbates his emotional/verbal abuse....
husband is controlling. History of alcohol abuse which exacerbates his emotional/verbal abuse. Currently he is sober and attends a court mandated DV program, and things overall are much better. Yesterday when we were out in public with our two young children. He said I was making eye contact repeatedly with a male. He gave me the silent treatment the rest of the day, and then got angry about it later. I knew what he was angry about before he said it, because this happens at least 50 percent of the time we go out in public. I feel as though I can't speak to men or look at them because he will get mad... so I do my best not to. (Which I understand is not healthy, and makes me feel so defeated and just not myself) But it's better than getting him upset. And yet... he still gets angry with me, if a man looks at me or God forbid I make eye contact.
JA: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?
Customer: My long distance vision is not great and I lost my glasses three months ago
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?
Customer: nothing relevant to my problem

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
