is he seeing a therapist because one specializing in this area would be the best thing for him. always try and put everything into the positive. try never to be bossy and try and put everything into a positive. for example, don’t eat that! could be turned into, when i cook this and add spices, you’ll really enjoy it. stay calm and repeat yourself in the same tone, if necessary. never raise your voice, thinking he can’t hear you. processing is difficult for them and sometimes they get stuck.

Dear Delia, Thank you very much for your kind response. I’m really frustrated with his condition. He is studying Math at a very strict university and I think this causes his illness to become worse and worse. He loves studying and he says I will not stop trying to learn. He only consumes pills and doesn’t believe in therapists. Oh, you know, I think no one can understand how much my family suffer from his problem…. He is only 24 years, but he is not energetic and he is always sad and very worried about his future.
