A relative is displaying odd behavior with symptoms of chewing on their fingers to the point of bleeding, paranoia, threatening others and drastic mood swings. Could this be a type of schizophrenia? This person has always had a behavior pattern of doing things to get attention in the past, but these symptoms are new and it's getting worse. Thanks for your help.
