Picture of Natrium arsenicosum
Essence: fear of being alone after a loss.
Impulsive in making contact otherwise it is too late
They feel they have to make contact otherwise things will go wrong. There is always some threat hanging over them, either bankruptcy or disease or death. They have to try and avoid this by constantly staying in touch with the other person.
It may be a case where the father or the husband is in danger of neglecting the family business. By constantly pointing out his responsibilities to him they try to make him aware of the situation and make him feel less alone. They like to make it clear that they are there for the other person, but at the same time they want it be known that they don’t want to be left to their own resources either.
Another situation would be that of a person whose parent is no longer able to cope and threatens to commit suicide. That threat is always in the air and all the person can do is to stay in touch with the parent all the time in order to avert disaster. They can’t afford to make a mistake, otherwise the outcome will be disastrous.
Vulnerable and precise
They are very vulnerable and very fastidious. They don’t want to show this vulnerability and try and keep up a front of responsibility and fastidiousness.
Fear of loneliness and poverty
They are very afraid of being left on their own without any money. So they are afraid of anything that might possibly cause such a situation. This means that they keep a constant check on everything and everybody and they get extremely restless when something threatens to go wrong.
