I've been crying a lot, and posting angry rants on Facebook knowing fully well it drives people away, but I don't care because there's nothing to lose. At first I thought the remedy was going to be very helpful, but my social life has tapered off again and mostly I just feel acutely aware of the fact that I don't have any friends. If I wanted to go out for coffee with another human being (which I do want) I would not be able to. I know from much experience that if you post on Facebook asking does anyone want to go and do this or that or does anyone want to hang out in real life, a couple of people "like" it but nobody takes you up on it. I don't even have the courage to delete my account because then I would have no connection to the world, and I know nobody would miss me or even notice. Nobody would call me and ask what's up, or is anything wrong. Even when I make it perfectly clear that something is wrong, nobody responds, because they're not real friends, I don't have any friends. It makes me angry at the universe, I don't understand what I did that was so bad that I deserve to be this much of an outcast.
LisaX last yearHave you ever taken Pulsatilla?
sameervermani last yearLet's do 3 doses of AMBRA GRISEA first in 30c potency. Please report in 1 week.
sameervermani last yearSorry I haven't updated. I haven't taken the ambra grisea, even though I have it in my possession; I keep putting it off because I know I will be unproductive for about a week after taking it. I'm not saying that's a good excuse, just explaining the situation. It's hard for me to get stuff done as it is, so I always feel like I'm in crisis mode.
The reason I'm posting now is because I am having a medical emergency: I suddenly have a full-blown scabies infestation. I know I'm not supposed to suppress them, but I won't have the willpower for much longer. My mental symptoms haven't really changed, they're unfortunately pretty stable, so I'll just describe the physical symptoms: a red lumpy rash all over my body, including my face and neck, patches of hard bumps on my hands and feet, intense itching which is worse at night, and worse in my hands and feet. The rash on my face and neck looks like rosacea, but since I definitely have scabies that's the simplest explanation for it. I have no appetite, and have to force myself to eat, and yet I don't lose weight. My body temperature is still too low. I've gotten onto a semi-nocturnal sleep cycle because I don't have energy until the evening. I will gladly provide more information as needed.
A probably important life event that I can't remember whether I reported it or not: 3 years ago my twin sister cut me out of her life. She was the person I was closest to, so it was a big deal. I'm still feeling depressed and lonely and abandoned from that.
What I'm wanting right now is just for the scabies to go away without having to use the toxic ointment. I don't care whether the remedy does anything beyond that or not. A few years ago I started to get an outbreak on my hands and feet, but it went away before it really took off. The remedy I took at the time was beryllium sulphuricum 200c, I think.
LisaX 7 months agoPlease don't take the remedies as prescribed above. You can cause a life-long aggravation with such dosing in some cases.
I would advise a single dose of Pulsatilla 30c as follows:
Dissolve 1 pellet in 120 ml spring water. Take a spoon from there and dissolve in another 120 ml spring water in a second cup, stir well, and take a spoon from there.
You can report to me in 48 hrs.
sameervermani 7 months agoIt has been 48 hours, but I don't see what there is to do except wait for the remedy. The itching is mostly reduced but it is worse today than it was yesterday, so I'm worried the bugs could proliferate again. The remedy makes me very sleepy, and I have vivid and troubled dreams.
LisaX 7 months agoLet's wait till tomorrow and if itching continues to bad, a dose can be repeated with 6 hits to the first 120 solution. After hitting, take a spoon from there and dissolve in another 120 ml spring water in a second cup, stir well, and take a spoon from there.
sameervermani 7 months agoIt seems like the problem isn't that the remedy isn't strong enough, because like I said, it makes me very sleepy, so the overall effect on my body is about as strong as I can take. I wouldn't say that the itching is very bad, but it also isn't nonexistent, which means that the bugs are not all dead. What happens if I wait until my body starts recovering from the 1st dose before taking the 2nd one?
LisaX 6 months agoThat's fine. You can wait for the effect to calm down before repeating. That will be the right thing to do.
sameervermani 6 months agoIt had been getting gradually better, but then it suddenly got bad again. The things I did differently were that I spent the night away from home, and it was the first day I had coffee again since taking the remedy, but I don't know if there's a connection. I don't have the rash all over like before, but I have bumps on my hands and neck, and my skin is red and itchy in various places. I also have an ear infection in my right ear, with a throbbing pain, and it hurts when I eat so I just don't. Should I repeat the remedy, or do something else?
