Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Any other specific symptoms you have noticed other than this one?
Is he suffering from any psychiatric illness or have suffered in past?
possibly some extreme self contentedness.
he has never told me of any diagnosed mental illness
usually when there is stress going on
OK, any other symptoms such as being suspicious, paranoid, hearing voices, etc
he always makes himself the victim in bad situations, has never admitted he heards anything. he says he is just thinking
but has no idea he's doing it. it is very strange
he will do it for a long time until you tell him he is doing it
This typical behavior can be normal or abnormal.
he does have a diagnosed compulsive lying thing
he saw a therapist
I was saying that this typical behavior can be normal or abnormal (abnormal if associated with other symptoms.)
ok, thank you
wait, I have not finished yet
few people may have habit of talking to themselves and they do it unintentionally without realizing it.
on the other hand, in patients hearing voices (auditory hallucination), these patients also show the similar behavior. It appears to an external observer that they are talking to someone but no one is around.
That is why I was asking, are there any other associated symptoms like being paranoid, suspicious, etc.
Usually these symptoms are also present in patients hearing voices.
yes, in psychotic illness like Schizophrenia.
DO you have any other question to ask?
no i am just getting concerned and needed to know if it could be a problem since it's getting worse. Thank you
