Erfried Pichler: Give me a gun
A thirteen-year-old boy suffered from headaches for several months until the cause was identified as a brain tumor. Suppressed emotions, ambitiousness, and a suicidal wish to shoot himself were some of the symptoms leading to the constitutional remedy Staphysagria. In addition, the patient was treated palliatively according to his current symptoms: Opium for constipation, Pyrogenium for fever, and Chininum arsenicosum for lack of appetite, weakness, and fear.
