Patient as a person
Owing to his complaints
she feel neglected from her classmates, teachers .In the class
room she was not allowed to sit with other children, she was not
allowed to touch other children. Her classmates treated badly.
Teachers allotted her separate place to sit in the classroom.
She is well adjusted in
her home with everyone; she easily burst out of crying when her
mother scolded. She is very pleasing, lovable and kindhearted
When she was in her mother's
womb, her mother decided to terminate the pregnancy because she
already had 2 children, but her attempt ended in failure.

The forsaken feeling was an inner core
of this case, her mother wanted to terminate her pregnancy while
she was in womb, so the theme of neglected feeling imprinted in
her fetal life that was reflected in her later life. So pulsatila
the sycotic remedy is covering the central theme and remaining
part of the case. She was very much improved in short time with
single, minute, similar, antimiasmatic homoeopathic medicine.
