By day 14: Now have the full sycotic set – Thuja is an important remedy for me but I’ve never expressed it with quite such vitality! Skin tag erupting, conjunctivitis, mucous, fishy discharge, waking at 3.00 a.m.

Day 31: ‘Antidoted’ with Lycopodium, chosen because it is a good remedy for me and includes the restless leg symptom. Supervisor felt that Causticum would have been a good remedy for me and is strongly in the restless leg symptom.
Lycopodium 30 s.d. ameliorated slowly, but it took a very long time (months) for symptoms to gradually disappear.

The symptoms in the last two weeks before Lycopodium was taken felt senseless, they somehow felt like symptoms which did not add up to a sensible whole; there was a scattered feeling, the opposite of the ‘coming together’ feeling, the sensation of integration of past selves that happened at the beginning of the proving.

On looking back, realise that about a month after taking the Lycopodium, I become very depressed about the relationship and seriously considered leaving my partner. Came through that few days with a very focused certainty that I wanted to stay in the relationship and have been consistent in working towards improving things since then. Before that I had fluctuated a lot in my thinking about it, for a long time.

Both physically and emotionally things seemed nearer the surface, but at the same time I felt a holding in/onto feeling. (Not remembering dreams, constipation, lighter periods. My twin has noticed anxiety for no apparent reason and sleeplessness. Nearly 2 weeks after completing diary feeling more settled and relaxed than over the previous 2 months. 9a

Supervisors review

Possibly remedy was antidoted on day 2 by strong smelling woodfiller, but he did take 2 more doses after this.

Although there was an amelioration in his pains immediately after taking the remedy, there was no amelioration of his arthritis generally.

[Prover did not write anything down, just talked to the supervisor on the phone]

Something went pop in the kitchen, it went off with a bang, I think it was just a bottle (on taking first dose of remedy)
