The Characteristics Of People Who Experience Mental Disorders Or Psychiatric Disorders?
Good morning, I want to consult and ask. I have my mother’s aunt or sister-in-law, she often makes stories that can be told that there is no truth or fact. Even my aunt often causes problems for my family and often exaggerates the problem. The issue that was discussed again is never finished until a new problem arises. When my mother asked him about the problem, he never admitted his mistake. He also once scolded my grandmother when my grandmother wanted to ask for money for treatment to my uncle. He was not happy if my uncle’s money was spent on my grandmother’s treatment. If I want to know my aunt was mentally ill or not?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically a person can be said to have a mental disorder or psychiatric disorder if the mental symptoms they have interfere with the functions of his daily life, for example if the symptoms experienced by your aunt make him unable to work properly (including being continually dismissed from his workplace) , can not socialize well and can not establish close relationships with others, and can not take care of themselves properly (including there is a tendency to hurt themselves or commit suicide). If your aunt does not experience significant life function disorders as mentioned above, then the symptoms experienced by your aunt can not be called a mental disorder or psychiatric disorder.
There are many causes for someone to lie (making stories that have no truth or facts). There are those who lie to get certain goals (protect themselves, protect others, get certain benefits, etc.), there are also people who lie without purpose (people lie because of habit or can also lie unconsciously). There's not much you can do if your aunt is not close to you or your family, but you can advise your aunt's husband to take him to a psychologist or psychiatrist for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
