What Is The Illness That Causes A Person To Not Be Able To Remember His Own Objects?
Night doctor. I want to ask. I have a sister-in-law who often wears things or things that other people have. He also did not remember which one he had who was someone else’s. Weird indeed. His own property even he does not remember. Does someone like this have a disorder or how? The solution for people like this how? Thank you for the attention of the doctor.-Cut Masrurah-
Good evening Cut Masrurah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. In the world of psychology, there are conditions where someone likes to use or take things that do not belong to him, and are called kleptomania conditions. Such people have the satisfaction of taking an item, even though it is not valuable and does not provide direct benefits for him. He feels pride and calm when he can take something that is not his.
But what happened to your brother-in-law, does not seem to be included in this disorder. Because usually people with this disorder do not forget the goods. He still knows what belongs to him and what is not, but he still takes it. If what your sister has is more about forgetting, forgetfulness should not be specific to things, but can also forget what he or she hasn't done, forget someone's name, forget about activities and so on.
If your brother does not meet the two conditions we have mentioned above, chances are he has no abnormalities whatsoever. His condition now may be more on the one who lacks concentration, or doesn't rule out the possibility, he is actually joking. Because if he forgets, it should not be specific to the goods, but also to other things as well. If it is specific only to the goods, it is more likely if he really does not want to think too long where the goods are, and only uses what is nearby.
Even if your brother-in-law is serious that he is experiencing this limitation, we suggest checking with a doctor to be examined and find out more about his condition. Because this is still unclear, first check with your doctor. So, hopefully answering your question.
