3. How do you feel emotionally (I feel sad & depressed, thinking about suicide. Think about all bad things happened in the past. I like to be alone all the time. I hate being with people…..)
4. Describe your personality (I am a headstrong person, very suspicious of others, very strict about discipline…. OR I am a messy person, not interested in cleaning. Don’t bathe for many days…..)

1. What are the symptoms of your health problem :Depression, anxiety, anger, irritability, lack of confidence and enthusiasm . Consider my self hard worker but don't enjoy my work difficulty in handling work pressures sometimes leads to irritability, long work hours , constantly chasing deadlines , sleep was also getting affected when I was working, anger and irritability also has been problems both at work and home.

Heaviness/ Pressure on top of my head, mind feels dull, heaviness in chest


2. What makes the problem better or worse: 1. Anger/ irritability: worsened when over worked and stress , often think I cant handle stress, anger irritability also worsened when I am challenged and when people doubt my capabilities, lack of sleep leads to excessive coffee drinking during day time to keep myself awake , which than leads to more anxiety and than worsening insomnia . I tried ignatia 30 ccx 4 for depression and also arnica 30c x2 for hair loss last couple of weeks, in addition after reading on forum last week tried staphy 200cc 1/wk after staring ignatia + arnica felt excessive thirst and urination not sure emotionally it changed anything, today I took second dose of staphy intermittently also had nux 30 cc, today my head is feeling heavy, chest feels heavy, mind feels very dull.
3. How do you feel emotionally: as mentioned above feel depressed , hopeless about future , want to stay alone , more irritable thought
about suicide in past never acted on it, not suicidal currently, think about failures , thought of never succeeding in spite of working hard. worry excessively about public perception.


4. Describe your personality : Headstrong , would not consider myself obsessive compulsive I don't focus on cleanliness but am not messy either.
5. What occupies your mind mostly:Lately negativity, plan but don't accomplish for fear of failure .
6. How do you respond to consolation : I hate consolation.
7. Do you fight or flight :tendency of picking of fight verbally when challenged which is my first reaction but regret later on.
8. What are your fears : Fear about future, not succeeding, lifelong fear of public speaking
9. Do you normally feel hot or cold : preference for Lower temperature.
10. What foods you love & hate : Like spicy foods , sweets, like chicken, fish.
11. How is your thirst : Thirst was ok before starting ignatia/ arnica but lately am drinking more .
12. Any coating on tongue : do not see any significant coating on tongue .
13. Any skin problems apart from dandruff no other skin problem.
14. Any problems with respiration: I am told I snore at night.
15. Any problems with stool/urine : constipation was never a problem, always go 2-3 times per day, soft stool, flatulence has been

a problem.
16. Any sexual problems :lack of desire in last few months
17. Describe your appearance : I was thin till 17-18 , gained wt around the belly after that wt usually around 178 lb, ht 5. 8 , excessive

First step, please stop all remedies.

Are you on any other medicines

Since when have you had depression/anxiety issues

What was going on in your life that caused depression/anxiety

How has the loss of job affected you

Explain heaviness on chest

Does fear of failure make you not take on new projects or its just a fear

What happens when you have to speak in public

Are there any foods & tastes you hate

Probably for years , very remotely tried anti- depressant after which I think I gained weight , worsening of symptoms occurs mostly because of external factors, mostly pressures at work , last few years tried only homeopathy
 
lpj27 6 years ago
Heaviness in chest mostly occurs when am anxious, feels like weight on the chest , loss of job I have been feeling depressed , worked very hard for it , I have accepted a new job but still don't feel Enthusiastic about starting new job, feels very low in energy. Inspite of failure I do take on new projects if I am forced to or where I don't have any choice.
 
lpj27 6 years ago
On speaking in front of people , I feel anxious , speak fast and some of the time my speech trembles .

How do you feel when you are anxious.

Any recurring dreams.

Are you in any relationship, if so, how is it.

Please explain further how do you respond when challenged.
- when challenged or if I feel that my abilities are being questioned , I become guarded but respond verbally aggressively or I feel angrily, which some of the time I regret later on some of the time feeling of not being understood by the other person.

What do you want to do when depressed and what helps you come out. - don't feel like doing anything what helps me if external situation
changes or something positive
happens
How do you feel when you are anxious. - heaviness in chest , lack of sleep , restlessness.

Any recurring dreams. None

Are you in any relationship, if so, how
is it.married my wife is very supportive I feel I don't put in effort into this relationship

Have you stopped all other remedies.

There should be a break of at least one week before taking the remedy I am suggesting below.

Take a single dose of Lycopodium 200c and report back.

One dose is one pill. That's it.
No more dose.
