Hello. On the face of it, all these behavioral changes are significant & concerning. They are pointing towards some addiction (alcohol, opium, heroin, smack, marijuana or similar which is evident from stealing money & behavioral changes) or onset of some form of mental illness (which is evident from senseless talks, aggressive behaviors) you should seek psychiatry consultation as soon as possible to help your father recover or you can revert back to me with a detailed description of his behaviors so I can help you further. Good luck.

Understanding Autism.


Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects 1-2 people out of every 1,000 people worldwide. It is a wide spectrum disorder, so no two people with autism will have the exact same symptoms. There are those who function easily, those who are impaired and struggle to live normally and then there are others in between. Difficulties in communicating, social impairment and repetitive patterns of behaviour are some of the major symptoms that characterise autism and the related autism spectrum disorders (ASD).


Read the following articles to gain a better understanding of this condition:


Diagnosing Autism

In order to create awareness and combat this problem, early diagnosis and social acceptance is necessary. Here's a brief on what we can do to recognise autism.

 

Decoding the Symptoms of Autism

Although there is no scientific cure for autism, its symptoms can be worked upon with the help of a communication or behavioural therapist. 

 

Treatments for Autism

In this article, we chalk out the main treatments and therapies for curing autism in children and adolescents.

 

In conclusion, it’s important to treat these conditions not as disorders but to accept them as differences. Accept them in the same way we accept people of all races. These conditions are not caused by any disease or injury but because of genetics andenvironmental factors. Science suggests that neurological diversity has helped humans throughout their evolution to survive in the environment. It’s possible that those affected might just come up with solutions for problems that might escape those with normal brain wiring. Not because they’re necessarily smarter, or better, but because they think differently.  So it’s necessary to accept, respect and accommodate those with such conditions.  To care, not repair is the outlook we should have for the betterment of mankind.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

We often blame low libido to stress. Yes it is a very common cause, but in this mode of thinking, we might be missing some organic biological medical cause of what is now termed as erectile dysfunction. You need to undergo a series of blood tests and physical evaluation to rule out any definate cause of your'weakness" please shed your inhibitions and go to a urologist or a sexologist (qualified) and I am sure your days (and nights!) will be better.

I smoke cigarattes and i drink alcholal frequently by that my face is changing into dark what precautions ishould take to make my face little white. Thank you

The action of cigarette smoke on the skin is to make it age faster and to wrinkle it up, soon. This will give it a darkened appearance. Alcohol consumption too causes damage to the liver and can reflect as dark patches on your face. But you would have had to drink for many years for this effect. So it may not be because of your drinking but I would still advise you to give it up for all the dangers it can pose to your health, career, marriage/relationships, and the mental disturbances it can cause. As far as I know, there is nothing that can whiten your skin except bleaches which can also cause damage to skin, and some prescription drugs whose side effects can cause whitening, again with some bad impact on your health.

Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you want to quit smoking, a normal human takes oxygen into lungs 15 -20 times per minute (15 - 20 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen that spoils blood and our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day.
