desperate - and have messed things up

I haven't been using homeopathy for a while, was using herbal medicine, which was helping, but giving me stomach problems [maybe]. So I decided to have a rest from the Quiet Life pills. But then cue major insecurity trigger for an already close to the edge mental health crisis.

I'd taken Argent Nit to try and ease IBS symptoms. But felt way too incredibly raw emotionally.

Later that afternoon the trigger came in, and I was in such a panic that I thought Aconite might help. No, it just made me more hyper.
In desperation I took a dose of Pulsatilla, which seemed to help, but then I ended up crying all morning [at home, then in my psychotherapy session, in which I fell completely into my abandoned child mode and was mostly unreachable, to my shame.]

All these were at 30C, and yes, to my shame, all in the course of one day.

I know I've completely messed things up. How can I gain some stability again? I am now just using Rescue Remedy [Bach flowers] as that's pretty gentle and safe. But if there's anything I can do to sort things out and not stir anything up any more... please.

I know I've made a mistake, but I was [still am] desperate.

Currently I am waiting to be made redundant from my job, waiting for my flatmates to divorce, plus there's some insecurities in my therapy situation too.
I have no choice but me made redundant from my job because my grade will be deleted and I can't compete for the next grade up because one of the criteria for the post involves doing things that set off flashbacks to the severe abuse I received from my peers.
In pretty much everything I am so powerless right now, and I feel like no one cares and I am utterly worthless.

Did you ever go back to repeat the Lyssin?

That would be the first step. I can only see that you took the one dose - however I would dilute it more to prevent too strong an aggravation.

What amount of water did you use that time?

Hi Sorrel,

Did you ever try the Lachesis ?

sameervermani last decade
David, I used whatever I was told, 250ml or something. I did only take the one dose.

Sameer, no, I haven't tried the Lachesis.

I am so afraid of further aggravation. It's aggravation from the 3 different remedies I took on Wednesday that I am anxious/desperate to clear. I felt so weird in my head the past 2 days - not sure how I feel today yet as I haven't been around people.

I still can't eat, and will likely spend most of today hiding under the duvet. It's safe there.

Ok, if and when you are up for trying the Lachesis, let me know, I will tell you the dosage using an LM1.

I'm not so sure of trying anything new. I'm way too wobbly already, and I seem to have extra heightened sensitivity right now, probably because I'm so strung out with stress, and my child mind state is so forefront and I can't 'control' it/her.

I'm feeling slightly calmer today, with frequent doses of Rescue Remedy and plenty of rest and sitting in the sun - and another good cry.

I feel so frightened though of my feelings, and I feel so unstable. I am so unstable.

I am unable to get either remedy before Wednesday afternoon.

I don't know what to do. I've even considered phoning my ex homeopath again. But all things considered, with all factors that are going on, that wouldn't be wise, plus my financial constraints.

My GP won't so far give me any additional medication. She approved the Quiet Life, but now I've stopped taking that because the valerian was blocking up in my system. She has also said I can use zopiclone [sleeping tablet] at night, but last one I took of those I was beyond crabby the next day, and the day after like a zombie who could barely move.
I feel so stuck. Short of having someone who I can lean on and cry in the arms of - which won't ever happen, nothing is really going to soothe me in the pre-verbal state in me, it feels.

I can't even make a decision, Lyssin or Lachesis. I'm terrified of both, of aggravating again. I haven't got the resilience right now to cope with any more aggravation on top of what I had this week and what I'm going through in my life.
Sorrel last decade
Oh, and I did manage to eat better today. Milk and soft stuff, but food none the less.

I am concerned that you both advocate the same remedies as of several months or more ago. I need to update with some new factors, which may influence the picture.

I am feeling sick again. I have lost nearly half a stone in the past couple of weeks, which I can ill afford as I was only 7 stone before anyway. Also I have developed a pain in both knees, that is like a period pain there. I have a headache, and just want to curl up under a rock, as it were. I crave respite from the stress.

I am having intense separation anxieties already, 'only' one day into a 3 week psychotherapy break.

I have applied for a post in the redeployment pool at work. I won't know anything for about 2 weeks though. I am already regretting my decision, and feel I might be forced into something. But I may not even be invited to interview. 'I'm useless anyway'. Even though I also know I'm not. I wish I hadn't 'put myself out there' even though I felt excited about it last night.

I am understanding more each day about my feelings of suspiciousness and jealousy.

My knees really ache, and paracetamol have made no difference.
Sorrel last decade
Are those the updates?
brisbanehomoeopath last decade
I am very confident (ofcourse this can never be 100 %) that the remedy Indicated is Lachesis.
sameervermani last decade
Yes, those are the updates. As far as I can find words right now.

I woke up feeling sick again. Indeed I dreamed of vomiting majorly last night. When I went to bed last night I cried heavily, about the whole work situation, but principally about the pain in my knees.
