Thank you
Hello Dede, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints often speak for themselves must be explored further. If talking to yourself looks like talking to an object that clearly does not exist it could be a hallucination. In some conditions these complaints can be accompanied by a variety of other complaints (for example, like being alone or angry without cause, like leaving the house without remembering the time, and some of them) forming a collection of symptoms. The collection of symptoms experienced by your wife can be caused by various conditions, including:
Acute psychotic disorders
Delusions, and so on
Because there are so many reasons that may be underlying, then to distinguish it must be examined on your wife. It is also intended to find out whether the cause of the complaint is purely due to a psychological disorder or caused by another medical condition. That way the handling can be more precise and directed.
For now things you can do are:
Make sure your wife gets a nutritious and healthy food intake every day
Give enough drink
Make sure your wife gets enough rest
Invite your wife to communicate and tell stories
Create a comfortable atmosphere for your wife
Invite your wife to pray and get closer to God
With the symptoms that are so complex in your wife, it is advisable to immediately see a psychiatric specialist in order to get further examination and treatment.
So, hopefully useful.
