Tired, Apathy, Creative blocks, Lack of will

Hello, I'm a single mother (33yrs) currently taking Sepia 200C (constitutional) twice per week due to hormonal balance. I have migraine headache on first day of menstrual cycle accompanied by irritability and tiredness. Tiredness and irritability usually occurs in week before menstrual cycle start. I often have excessive cravings for milk chocolate.

My main complaints are Creative block, lack of will to start projects. I will try to start something but then often feel irritable and give up. Which is upsetting to me. Used to be a very creative person. I enjoy reading and learning new things but often feel upset and frustrated that I can't seem to retain my memory of what I learnt about. Feel helpless at times.

Often feel tired by the afternoon. Still breastfeeding a 2yr old and wanting to wean soon as it's become draining and less enjoyable for me.

For supplementation I take a multivitamin in the morning if I remember, and at night I take Magnesium and Zinc.

Thanks in advance for advice of correct remedy.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Who prescribed sepia 200 2x a week?
A naturopath? A homeopath?
How long have you been doing this?
200c can work for months if right. You may be proving
This remedy.

Yes a homeopath prescribed this approx 6 months ago. I took once per day for a month then she dropped dose to twice per week. However after 3 months I stopped and forgot to take it. Have only started taking again yesterday.

Lack of creativity and memory are due to being tired.
How were you during the 3months you forgot to take sepia?
How many hours do you sleep at night?
Does your child sleep thru the night?
Is your cycle regular?

The only noted changes whilst on Sepia were my migraines stopped. The last 3 months that I hadn't taken it my migraine headaches returned in the last cycle. This is why I started taking it again. I've never had irregularity issues, always have been consistent 28 days.
I sleep 8 hours but yes it is broken due to being woken once in middle of the night and again early morning to nurse. Also being a single parent and no other support with two children, I have little time for myself. I'm considering weaning my little one soon.

I've had significant emotional trauma over last few years that I've been seeing someone for on regular basis. I've been wanting to return to studies and pursue creative projects but I lack the will or motivation. I've never felt so blocked as this and it's been at it's worst for last 6 months or so.

Thank you for your response :)

Let’s start with getting your energy balanced.
Would like you to purchase Cell salt combo called 5phos. This contains Kali phos, mag phos, nat phos, ferrum phos, cal phos. Potency 6x.
Take 2tabs 3x a day and report after a week. These target depression, inability to think well, etc.
Please describe migraine pain in detail-how it begins, type of pain, pain location ,
Flashing lights etc-anything that helps, anything that makes it worse. I will suggest for that.
Stop sepia for now. If you have trouble finding 5phos let me know your country.
Cell salts are specific 12 mineral remedies in low potency-they are a system used to get the cells themselves back into balance.

Thank you, I'm in Australia and should be able to find this.

Headaches start in top of the forehead. It's like a big cloud or weight on my head. A constant bearing down. It will last all day and sometimes into the next day. At its worst I become sensitive to noise and bright lights.
I often see sparkles of white light before migraine really kicks in. Like little flashing stars. The bearing down or weight stays in my forehead, behind the eyes and slightly on top of head. If I over exert myself it will become pulsing and will need to rest.
One other thing I've forgotten to mention is I will often have night sweats (hot) in the first few days of my cycle.

I will search for Cell Salts. Thank you.

You can call Newton’s homeopathic pharmacy in Sydney-they do phone orders and will know what 5 phos is.

Order Nat mur 30c and Belladona 30 c to try next time you have the migraine.
Try 4 pills of one and wait 8 hours to see how it effects.

Edit function not working right-For 5 phos take 3 tabs 3x a day and report after a week.
