I am trying to understand the following behavior in a adult. Can it be related to mental illness
*attention seeking behavior (banging objects to get attention, intense starring and other weird behavior)
*over dramatising events and being very excitable/emotional
*very nervous behavior (jumping about, shaking, stuttering etc)
*Erratic behavior/attitude to others
Also how do you deal with such behavior, which can be stressful, challenging and confusing for others (such as myself)?
