43-year-old Debbi Wood has a rare neurological syndrome called Othello Syndrome, which makes her so jealous that she forces her husband to take a lie detector test every time he leaves the house.
For the most part, the media is portraying Wood as someone worthy of the Maury Povich Show, but the reality is much more complicated. Othello Syndrome is often triggered by traumatic instances. In Wood’s case, it was an ex who was addicted to porn.
Not only does Wood make her husband Steve take lie detector tests, she spies on his banking, his phone, his emails and his laptop.
In this video below, it’s clear that Debbi and her fiancé are in love. She has a captivating laugh and she seems to be working hard on her problems.
She also suffers from body dysmorphia and bipolar disorder. All can be helped by medication, but getting the right mix can take time.
In the mean time, Debbi and Steve are adjusting:
“Sometimes, I get nervous and the lie detector test results come back inconclusive because my heart is hammering, which makes Debbi doubt me. I just have to tell her I haven’t cheated and pray she believes me,” he told the Mirror. “I’m willing to put up with it, because I know we’re soulmates. She’s so special to me and a bit of jealousy here and there won’t change that.”
