Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello, I am available to assist you. Welcome!
Can you tell me a little bit more about this person? What comes to mind is someone who is gullible, and or codependent- focus on others needs and wants.
Are you available to join me for a live chat?
It may help me better answer your question if I could ask a few additional questions.
gullible, can never tell the difference between a joke or not. Cannot judge that someone might take advantage of her. Responded to letter from Africa asking for $2,500 dollars
Was being harassed by the scammers so much that police had to be contacted because she felt she "had" to get the money to help them
Do you think their are cognitive disabilities? Or someone who is not very socially savvy?
Maybe a bit delusional? Cognitive disabilities, learning disabilities..
When I say delusional I mean, unable to determine if something is true, accurate- believing something that others know is untrue.
Don't know for sure but probably. Cooked a cake once at twice the heat, thinking that it would cook faster. Took cake to work. Edges burnt, center not done
Unable to determine if something is true
It may be more of a brain wiring thing- how the person interprets, problem solves.
Is this an elderly person?
That's what I mean about cognitive issues- trouble putting things together accurately to make decisions.
Are there memory issues?
no I was just wondering if there was a "name" for such issues in general. I'm actually thinking about the ND football player that fell prey to a prank and thought I had heard of a mental illness that could explain such a failure
Gotta go. Lunch time over. thanks for your assistance.
Processing disorder? Lack of understanding of verbal, or non verbal cues- that most of us understand. Oh, I heard a bit about that-
I can look a little deeper into this and see if I can find this for you.
no I gotta go, how do I accept?
Rate ok or higher- Thanks!!
