Apathy and sugar cravings

Hi any help would be much appreciated.
I am36 years old, skinny as a child, been gaining weight since age 18.
Even when skinny had large bottom (before Jo Lo made them popular !)
Not at home in body
Don’t feel at home in my home
Slovenly, house is a mess, have stopped taking care of appearance
Have no sense of purpose, despite having 2 adorable fun joyous children and expecting a third.
Wander about looking at things that need doing but doing nothing or spend time looking for a miracle cure for me on the Internet.
Filled my time between pregnancies and before with vast quantities of tea and wine.
When not drinking tea and wine crave sugar.
Love bread and have tried to give it up but can’t
Love chocolate eaten with salty potato chips
No willpower as if I don’t believe I’m worth anything.
Loads of good entreprenurial ideas but unable to get anything started
Despair that I’ll never feel better, looking for someone to save me.
Find it hard asking for help like this.
Tired all the time, rarely refreshed and energetic
Thnaks very much

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Sugar cravings are Psoric.

The untidiness speaks of Sulphur
Do you get hot feet in bed , dislike wearing woolen garments

Are you blond , easy going until pushed and then stubborn , dislike rich fatty foods .

In which case pulsatilla may fit .
Check them out.

Me again
Reading other posts made me think of this.
15 years ago I caught scabies which was treated with an ointment from an allopathic doctor.
8, 6 and 4 years ago I had threadworms which were treated with something from the chemist.
Hope this helps

I tend to wear socks to bed and take them off later, I have trouble getting warm then can't stand being too hot.
I was blond as a child then went mousey, can agree with easy going till pushed but I like rich fatty food, that said Pulsatilla used to help my PMS.

Since Passkeys reply I've done lots of reading about Sulphur and Psora and these seem to cover me very closely. I understand that Sulphur is one of the main remedies for psoric symptoms too. I have started taking Sulphur 9 as that is the dose I had at home.
For a deep lasting cure what dillution should I try?

I am but a student, so take what I say accordingly.
Also, are you taking any sort of supplements or vitamins while you are pregnant? This could certainly help with your vitality, especially with 2 other children!
Homeopathic sulphur is wonderous stuff!
My best experience with it in the LM/1 potency, though it works well in other potenties as well. I have read other threads discussing various potencies and the pros and cons of them, I use mostly 6c or LM/1
occasionly 12c or 30c. When I took Sulphur LM/1 for the first time, well, the best way to describe what I felt was...like I had been asleep my whole life and I woke up that day. I felt refreshed, alive, vital, energized, alert, and this was about 2-3 hours after 2 teaspoons from one cup dilution, each teaspoon was about 2-3 hrs apart. My husband noticed the difference later that evening and asked me what I took that day! I was a little surprised by his remark and told him all I took was homeopathic sulphur and he replied that it looked good on me! I could feel it on the inside too! I noticed later in the passing weeks, my house was cleaner, I lost about 5-6 lbs without thinking about it, bread and what to put on it lost some appeal, so did many other minor nagging things.
Now, all that said, it doesn't affect everyone the same way, at least not in my experience. My youngest daughter responds to Calc Phos, the way I did to Sulphur. She's been helped by Sulp. in the past but still it did not 'work' for her that way.
Hope this helps you in some way.

Hi Jade,
Thanks for your reply, its very encouraging, I'm glad it worked so well for you. I've just ordered sulphur 10M I didn't feel I could go as high as LM and wanted little white pills rather than liquid, I don't know why.
I'll let you know how I get on.
I'll start taking my multivit and mineral again now that I've stopped throwing up, they irritated before.
Thanks again

Hi, Suzanne,
I have studied with a ND, Robin Murphy. He teaches that Hahnamann used LM's nearly exclusively in his later practice. When diluted in H2O it is more gentle that taking potencies like a 10M without the typical aggravations. And that is what I have experienced personally and with others.
Sometimes dilutions can be taken out to two or more cups before taking if one is super sensitive. I'm very interested in the results of the 10M for you.
