My mother doesn't want to use lights at home, I think because she thinks someone can see her, so we live in complete darkness. The room is only lit by light from TV or PC.
There is also an issue with certain locations in our apartment, where she can't go. She doesn't want to go near windows, and one of these places is bathroom. She can visit bathroom only once per day, when she wakes up, which is enough to take a shower, but when she needs to use bathroom during the day, she doesn't. She urinates into a bottle in a kitchen and then use sink to get rid of it. It is worse with defecating, rarely she visits bathroom during the day, other times she does it in kitchen, then pack it up in paper and throws in trash. But this is also rare since she can visit bathroom when she wakes up.
The last major issue is with new things in our apartment. Whenever we buy something new, be it for us, or gift for her which she wanted, it can't be in her presence, until she accustomes to it. This is usually never so we end up putting the thing in away or selling it.
Does anyone have such issues? What could it be and how to deal with it?
