Maheru, would you mind taking a look?...Hi,
How are you?
I am so glad to see that you're back on this forum.
May I ask for your help here?
I am struggling lately and could use some sound homeopathic advice.
I took a dose of Lac Equinum about a month and a half ago and it helped me greatly-- took away a lot of my lethargy, impatience and gloomy mood. After about a month the impatience and gloom crept back so I thought another dose. But it's been about two weeks and it's only gotten worse.
I am so emotionally charged, I have very little patience and ADHD symptoms...can't seem to focus or get motivated, I lose my thoughts in the middle of going to do a thing/forget what I was going to do.
I have very little patience with my kids, but it's not like an angry impatience, it's exasperated, desperate, frustrated...I have thoughts of leaving the house, and want to be by myself.
I truly want to just enjoy my kids and relax and play with them, but I feel like I don't have time, and every time I try to do a project or chore of any kind there's an interruption and I don't have the patience to work through it, I just freak out and make them go away.
This makes me want to cry because I don't want to treat them this way, and I'm afraid I'm damaging them somehow. I feel like a failure as a mom.
It seems to get much worse around ovulation time. I am utterly irrational and want to cry at everything... it clears up around when my period starts and then I feel OK for a week or two.
I can't handle loud noises or competing noises...If someone says too many details to me at once in an explanation, especially having to do with numbers its as thought whatever they just spoke was a blur and I didn't even hear it or process it. I'm immediately confused and everything is jumbled.
I have been really off of food lately even though I feel like I need to eat. My stomach feels bloated almost all the time and I'd rather just not eat at all, but that doesn't work either....
I have a hard time shutting my mind off at night to go to sleep and though my sleep seems to be sound and relaxing, I can barely wake up in the morning, sleep in late and then feel lousy because not only did I get too much sleep (and that always leaves me feeling groggy all day) but I feel again like a failure because I've wasted half the day sleeping and let the kids sleep too long and set my whole day and next night into the same circle again.
I am desperate for clarity of mind, energy, and feeling mentally capable and strong.
As usual, I prefer single remedy/dose/wait/watch method.
Please ask if you need clarification on any points.
Thanks so much, and I look forward to talking with you!

I had plugged in my symptoms to the Remedy Finder and decided on Sulphur which I took a dose of on the evening of the 29th.
I feel like it took everything I previously described from a 10 down to a 4 and it's been consistent this whole time. I do believe the remaining 4 is tied to nutrition and getting those elements right on a daily basis.
One thing I do have to complain about is ever since the Sulph dose I've had consistent neck tension and an irritating headache. It is especially difficult to go to sleep at night with the tension and my mind just not wanting to stop thinking about all the things...things i did today things i need to do tomorrow...etc..
And then I have bad dreams a lot. Of bad things happening to people I care about.
it's still hard to wake up in the morning, but a little easier.
I'd love for this neck and upper back tension to go away though...

I used 30c and diluted it out in water cups 3 times about a week ago.
It changed the headache I had to just a different kind of pain for about a day and a half and then it subsided.
The last week or so prior to taking Nux my face has been breaking out with acne like crazy. I haven’t had anything like this since I was a teenager. They are small and deep in the skin and painful to the touch.
They don’t really come to a head, but just are red raised painful swollen bumps. I know I shouldn’t, but I pick at them and then they take forever to heal.
Weird thing is it’s only on my forehead, nose and the left side of my face.
I do tend to sleep on my left side, but I change my pillowcase frequently so I’m just baffled.
I have not changed any other part of my hygiene routine.
I am feeling much better emotionally, especially mid cycle, but my daughter, who is two and still nursing, is extra clingy, needy and emotionally volatile now.
I am having some wicked cramps though at the moment ...
The last couple of nights I’ve had bad dreams again...dreams I don’t want to fall back asleep into. They had gone away for most of the last week.

If you think Sulph. is doing good, you may continue it, or if it's Nux you may continue it. Independent of these options one may also consider Silica.

everything is just a partial and aggravates other things and it just becomes this ridiculous rollercoaster...chasing a fairytale.
I decided to try Silica-- I haven't used that remedy in many years and I thought id give it a shot.
my acne improved by maybe 80% but what remains is totally festering.
I've noticed an incredibly frustrating decline in my memory and brain fog lately. A lot of the times I just feel like I'm drunk or stoned....all day long.
today my husband was out running errands, came home, told me he was going on another outing and a couple hours after he left I cold not for the life of me remember where he said he was going.
I keep forgetting things from one minute to another...it's like they're just completely gone. :'(
My thoughts are slow at computing and I will loose my train of thought mid sentence and literally forget what I just said.
I know homeopathy can do amazing things but there are times where I wish I could just erase all remedies in my system.
They make too much of an impression and too many aggravations.
And don't tell me to drink coffee cause I do and it doesn't change anything.
Please help, I need some balance....and my memory back.

Yeah that's a challenge that remedies aggravate and they go off tangent most of the time.
Well have you checked if what you already take in terms of extra(supplements/vits) could be causing some of these effects?
♥ maheeru last week
I always use the water method. Dissolve one pellet in 4oz of water, stir, and dilute at least 3 times in 4oz of water per each cup. Then take a tsp of final cup as a dose.
other supplements I currently take are vitamin D (I live in Seattle, Washington USA where the sun is absent for half the year. It's necessary) and a very low dose of selenium when I remember because it helps with the fatigue and evening energy crash.
That is all. There is nothing that I take that would explain how I feel, or the way that remedies have ALWAYS acted on me.
I've been trying to find the answer for years.
After writing that last update I tried Lycopodium 30c (dosed as noted above)
And it's helped much with the skin and the forgetfulness a bit.
The brain fog/inebriated feeling is gone until about exactly 5 PM every day and I feel very tired and my eyes feel swollen and dry with it. I feel like I need a nap but it's either terrible timing as far as my chores are concerned, or I just can't actually fall asleep.
Now I am noticing an increase in sensitivity to offenses. I feel defensive towards any kind of rejection or opposing opinion .... I have definitely felt this before in my life.
A woman I work with is very frank with me and tends to frame things in a negative way, and I end up feeling so angry and offended at her and assume that she is a terrible person. I'm constantly afraid that I am getting rejected and that people who are important to me are disapproving of me and maybe think I'm inferior. I'm also afraid of losing control of my ability to be rational. (this has always been my fear, but I am dwelling on it more now because I feel like it's happening.)
one thing i am noticing is also sticking is that I am here again at mid-cycle and I feel moody as though I would be PMS'ing.
I have Lycopodium in an LM potency. I'm wondering if it would be good to try that. But I'm not sure how to use LM's.

1M for your sensitivity was a bit on high side. 200c might have been a good option.
For a few days my availability will be less, so if I'm unable to post for some days in a stretch I regret the inconvenience. However will try to post a brief note about LM dosing if possible.
