< < Lachesis- main page




Maintains great quietness and firmness of mind, during very vexation and exciting events (seventh and following days),

Lively without any cause,

Excited mood the whole morning (second day, second proving); decidedly improved health, suffering only from too much smoking (third day),

Excited for a very long time in the evening, lively, in spite of constant sticking pressure beneath the scapulae,

A kind of ecstasy, as after sublime impressions, or excessive joy, throughout the day; he constantly wishes to talk and do much, and even more seems to be at his command (third day),

Fanciful imaginings, with the evening fever,

It seems to him during the day that he has dreamed everything that has happened, only somewhat different,

Great irritability; soothing poetry moved him to immoderate weeping; he was obliged to cry for joy; as for example, when reading in Schiller's Tell, he could not proceed; an unmanly rapture compelled him to desist; in exciting scenes he broke into tears, and so on for a great many days; after much crying, pain above the eyes,

Much talking during the febrile condition, in the evening,

An unusual inclination to be communicative,

Great inclination to be communicative, extraordinarily, vivid imagination; therewith extremely impatient at tedious and dry things,

Lively and communicative, even with a disagreeable feeling of fulness,

Social and communicative,

The more cause for fretfulness, the greater inclination for humor, just, satire, and humorous fancies,

Depression of spirits, with chilliness,

Depressed and anxious, with shortness of breath,

Great sadness in the morning, weak for a short time in the forenoon, otherwise physically well (thirteenth day),

So great apprehensiveness while riding in the open air that it seemed to him some great evil was impending, like an evil foreboding; it torments him for more than an hour (after three to four hours),

Very easily frightened, in the evening (first day),

Very easily frightened, with sensitiveness of the brain,

Sudden doubts arise about truths of which he had hitherto been convinced, in the afternoon,

It frequently seems to him wrong to read long at a time, although the subject interests him,

Mistrustful and thinking evil,

Towards evening very unusual almost crazy jealousy, as foolish as it is irresistible (after six hours),

Irritability during the feverish heat,

Extremely irritable,

At times, can only think for a long time of some fancied worry,

An infant is very fretful, cries much, will not lie down; then attacked by febrile heat, with many eructations; vomiting of milk; frequent stools; much crying and fretting; therewith it was hot to the touch,

Impatient; desires positive answers when this is not practicable,

Peevishness (transient),

Becomes easily peevish and mistrustful; believes himself intentionally injured by all his environments, and attaches the most hateful significance to the most innocent occurrences,

Unusually contentions and obstinate, so that he quarrels with everything about him,

So quarrelsome that he disputes with a mother about the age of her daughter, and affirms the younger to be the elder,

Violent, scornful mood, without being vexed (first day),

Breaks into a rage about trifles,

Indifferent and disinclined to work in the forenoon,

Very remarkable and persistent indifference and forgetfulness,


The mind was somewhat more collected after the first emission the fourth day than on the day previous,

He wishes to do a great deal; begins many things,

Need of being very busy, without the slightest perseverance,

He sits up late at night at mental work, with great activity,

Increased power of originality in all mental work, increased activity of fancy; scenes and occurrences throng to him in an unusual amount,

No sooner does one idea occur to him than a number of others follow in succession while he is writing it down, so that he is unable to finish the record,

Gladly sits in meditation,

Longing for amusement, without however experiencing ennui, with lively fancies about which he himself laughs,

Ennui with trembling,

Mentally very indolent, with physical weakness (sixteenth day),

Aversion to work,

Disinclined to his own proper work; either an indifferent or sad mood, with weariness and general laxity (fifteenth day),

Must force himself to attend to business (later action),

Dilatory, disinclined for any mental work,

Dilatory; he cannot accomplish his business as usual,

Cannot perform anything in an orderly manner,

Inability for abstract thought; not the least persistence,

Very distracted, while reading, without interesting trains of thought,

A kind of loss of ideas,

An unusual confusion as to time; he dated everything the 26th, when it was only the 6th; and on Wednesday he asked whether it was Saturday,

Makes more mistakes than usual in writing,

Constantly obliged to pay attention to his spelling, in a language in which he is usually fluent,

Writes a letter with numerous mistakes in spelling, without noticing them himself, in words written both in Roman characters and in the usual German text (in one who hardly ever made such mistakes),

Forgetful and indifferent,

Weakness of memory, so that it was difficult to pay attention to what was said to him,

Does not remember what has just happened,

It became extremely difficult for him to listen to others, though his hearing was not impaired; the words just spoken seemed obliterated,
