Are Symptoms Like This Schizophrenia
I have a 30 year old brother, over the past 3-4 years, my brother has started to be closed off from social and family, even when my parents reminded me to worship, I rebelled and was angry, often hitting my mother with the palm his hands, often laughing to himself, talking to himself, when watching tv his eyes are bulging like blank stares, his daily routine is just smoking, drinking black coffee, and eating but with unreasonable portions of food like when I have lunch at 12 o’clock set 4 in the afternoon eat again, then in the evening eat again, night often begdang, and often also behave like a child when there is my mother for example it often sleeps near the mother’s feet, and once slept with the head in the position of my mother’s feet. This is a bit long for me to tell to be a data of my Kaka’s childhood experience. So in the past I was often alone and rarely communicated with my parents, I was afraid of my father, if you want to eat, you have to swear without being noticed by my father and it happens more or less 10 years, often you are scolded as a result of rarely worship disobeying your will, basically My brother and father are like enemies. But I have never fought a bit from my father, so there I wonder if my brother is one of those who lacks affection from my father / no? Then in the past 3 years, the behavior was just like the one above, the hallucinations were very high, often hitting my mother, speaking in a slightly loud voice, and the volume of her voice was like shocking others, including me, her sister. Oh yeah, forgot to dock, there is additional data, then I also had a love relationship with a girl for about 5 years, then one day when I asked to marry her boyfriend, but at that time my condition was that I was unemployed and finally I was banned and I was told to do it for college, well starting from there also kk I look depressed, thinking a lot, dazed. Then the last thing I want to ask is whether the data I mentioned is a symptom of schizophrenia? Then how do I invite my brother to be examined by his psychologist?
Hello Adawiyah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Reading an explanation of your sister's current condition, the condition can indeed be a symptom of a psychiatric disorder such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or severe depression with psychotic symptoms.
However, psychiatric disorders in your brother can not be established without a clear examination of your brother's psychiatric status by a psychiatrist (psychiatrist). Therefore, it is very important to bring your sister to a psychiatrist directly. In conditions such as those experienced by your sister, it is quite difficult to arrange it to a psychiatrist so that it is necessary to give an understanding from other family members to your sister that she might experience a disorder.
If it is difficult, as an alternative, you can use the chat feature with specialist doctors, including psychiatrists, on the HealthReplies.com application to help check your sister's condition to the doctor without the need to bring it directly.
In the meantime, don't force your sister to go to a psychiatrist or a psychologist because it can worsen her condition, try to give an understanding that this consultation aims to help develop herself for the better.
I hope this helps.
