Is he having any medical illness? Is he taking any medicines?
Has he been seen his doctor recently?
A month and a half ago, he was having constipation problems. He wasn't able to pass faeces for weeks. He started getting extremely confused and dillusional. He was extremely anxious and stressed. He has seen a doctor about this, and he has been give Konsyl-D to resolve this problem.
He also went to see a doctor about his mental stability, my father does not communicate well at all. The doctor deduced that he was very stressed, and gave him Lorazepam. He started taking this for a couple of weeks, but he says he doesn't feel well after taking them and has now stopped.
Stress and anxiety issues?
When we ask him what he is worried or anxious about, he says there's nothing he's worried about. But when we ask him to do things such as go out for a walk, or to go out shopping, he says he doesn't want to and just wants to rest. When we persist that he should he gets frustrated.
He looks and feels stressed and anxious about doing anything else other than to sleep or eat. But he denies that he is.
Though he has never seen a doctor about this issue, I believe he has always been an anxious person. He is constantly worried and which may be a reason why he refuses to do anything. But he hardly expresses or communicates himself to us. He may not recognise that this is not a normal feeling either.
Is he eating well?
He eats when he is hungry. He will eat meats and vegetables.
No sign of weight loss. However he has become much less active.
He keeps saying that he is too tired and has no energy to do anything, and just wants to rest.
Any history of joints pain?
None that has been diagnosed by a doctor, sometimes he says he feels back pain.
When we try to teach him things, he doesn't remember things, and he gets confused easily. He also gets irritated very easily. He does not like others to disturb him when he is resting on the couch or bed.
