Based on totality and Repertorisation Patient was given Calc Carb 200 1 dose. Although it helped a lot, the fixed delusion did not clear.
Fixity of ideas that he was suffering from AIDS could not be erased from his mind.
Such a delusion is a sycotic expression and Thuja covers such fixity.
So the patient was given Thuja 1M, 1 dose, as an intercurrent remedy.
Patient had a tremendous obsession developed during a Botany experiment where he used the blade, previously used by some lady student, whom he feared had AIDS, and now he too was affected. This idea got fixed in mind, no amount of explanation helped.
Over exposure to Media and hype created by Media can create fear in many people about some or other grave disease. Patients come fearing they have AIDS or Cancer, Diabetes or Dystrophy etc. Calcarea covers well the fear, the fix idea and the delusion.
