Sigmund Freud

[SEA215a2][I]

[SEA215a3]She had been married for three months. Her husband, a commercial traveller, had had to leave her a few weeks after

[SEA215a5]their marriage and had already been away for weeks on end. She missed him very much and longed for him. She had been a singer, or at any rate had been trained as one. To pass the time, she was sitting at the piano singing, when suddenly she felt ill-in her abdomen and stomach, her head swam, she had feelings of oppression and anxiety and cardiac paraesthesia; she thought she was going mad. A moment later it occurred to her that she had eaten eggs and mushrooms that morning, and concluded that she had been poisoned. However, the condition quickly passed off. Next day the maidservant told her that a woman living in the same house had gone mad. From that time on she was never free of an obsession, accompanied by anxiety, that she was going to go mad too.

[SEA215a6]Such is the outline of the case. I assumed to start with that her condition then had been an anxiety attack-a release of sexual feeling which was transformed into anxiety. An attack of that kind, I was afraid, might take place without any accompanying psychical process. Nevertheless, I would not reject the more favourable possibility that such a process might be found; on the contrary, I would take it as the starting-point of my work.
