Adult fear of sleeping, doors must be lockedHello everyone,
I would like to assist a friend that has a fairly common phobia but with an unusual twist.
The women in this case is a balanced young professional in her early 30's. She maintains a healthy diet and does not suffer from any other illnesses. There are events from her past that directly correlate to her phobia, which I will discuss later. Below are the list of symptoms.
-She has a fear that someone will break into her room, thus she locks the door.
-The door must be locked, not just closed. This is in her own home.
-No one else can be in the room. Recently, she's been able to have her boyfriend stay in the room but he must sleep on the floor. Most often, he sleeps in another room.
-She does not require the lights to be off, only to have the door locked.
-Her sleep is inconsistent, often waking up 2 or 3 times during the night to use the washroom, only to realize that she can't go (urinate)
-She suffers from mild depresson and anxiety which are both amplified during menstruation.
Her mother died of cancer when she was 10. Thus, she has a real fear of cancer. This fear and irregular sleeping patterns started in her youth, shortly after her mother's death. There is no other traumatic event from her childhood that correlates to this fear.
Ideally, I would think a psychotherapist would be better suited to helping her. She's explored that route without success so I'm hoping that others here may offer some insight thru homeopathy.
I appreciate any input.
