'I feel ridiculous at a party'.
Baryta nitrica is like an unwritten page in the book of homeopathy.
Small, futile Need for space, expansion
Hiding Congestion, explosive.
From the group analysis we get for Baryta nitrica the delusion that enjoyment is ridiculous. They are afraid that people will laugh at them if they enjoy themselves. They feel a great desire for company and warmth, but only with friends and family. The company of strangers makes them very shy. They feel that they look silly when they are having fun. That is why they don’t like going to parties, because don’t feel at ease.
A variation on the theme could be that they feel very small and weak, unable to occupy any space. This feeling gets worse if the space is too small, when they feel totally overwhelmed. Hence their fear of narrow spaces is very marked: fear in shops, planes, lifts, trains etc. Eventually they give up and withdraw. And where do they hide? Not inside, but in a wide open space, outside where there are no people.
Fear of being ridiculed when you have fun.
They love company and social gatherings. They like nothing better than being at a family party. But at the same time they are very afraid of looking silly when they are having fun like this. Especially the company of strangers makes them feel uncomfortable. They may even withdraw for fear of being observed.
They are afraid of narrow spaces, in places like the cinema, a plane or a lift. They prefer to be in a wide open space.
