Emotional. She herself desires, with anxiety and despair to be taken to an insane asylum, and there to be treated very harshly and strictly, so that her fixed ideas may be subdued and banished; she knows very well that she does wrong and thinks all sorts of bad thoughts, but she will not take the trouble to banish such thoughts; therewith she indistinctly gives to understand that she is constantly obliged to think of taking her own life, but feels the sinfulness of it, and, in order to avoid it, desires the strict restraint of the asylum; her condition is worse in the morning; in the evening, however, she mingles in society as usual, behaves correctly, and even jokes, only she is more distracted than usual. She fancies that she had intentionally represented herself as insane in the presence of others in order to palliate a wrong supposed to have been done, and that now she is punished, therefore, by real insanity. She feels and says that she is deranged and unfit to live, as a punishment for a fault which she cannot name, with talking of the most confused subjects without any connection, sense, or understanding; commences every sentence anew without ability to finish it in spite of every effort of the vanishing memory. She fancies that she has committed a sin. She has a decided sensation that her soul is separated from her body, and in such a condition hears and feels everything as from a distance. She often fancies that someone is sitting near her, with whom she talks aloud while she is lying quite wide awake with open eyes, and wonders when she is asked with whom she is talking, then she does not know what to think of it. She constantly longs for the offices of the church in order to banish her sinful thoughts of suicide. At night, while awake with closed eyes, she seems to see ghosts, and also now and then all kinds of animals brilliantly illuminated, coming to her from a distance and then disappearing; on opening her eyes everything disappears, but returns on closing the eyes again. While half awake it suddenly seems as though a chair were standing in the middle of the bed; she tries to rise in order to move it, but cannot move a limb, with a sensation as though the whole body were as heavy as lead, then she tries to call for help; can utter no sound, and lies with open eyes fully awake and in indescribable anxiety; only after a quarter of an hour is she able to call out, which ends the attack. Extraordinary sensitiveness to every impression; he gives way to the humor of the moment, so that he always goes from one extreme to the other; his whole existence consists of only extremes, wherewith he is always irresistibly inclined to agreeable exciting, heating drinks, but without intoxication; these happy and exalted reveries constantly increase from day to day, over-stepping all bounds and becoming a joyful, dizzy intoxication, with entire extinction of reason. He often dreamed in a clear day, with open eyes without being asleep, for an hour at a time; in this he especially revelled in overpowering selfishness, himself the central point about which everything must turn, with an intoxicated feeling of the most joyous self-satisfaction, which is the more important since usually he is constantly melancholy.
