Symptoms Based Upon Feelings of Rejection:

  • Henry Kellerman

In the following three cases, each patient experienced feelings of rejection, and developed symptoms directly related to such feelings. In the first case, the patient developed intrusive fantasies of strangling his girl friend. In the second case, the patient developed night sweats, so that his bedding and pajamas needed to be changed because they were soaking wet. In the third case, the patient developed mortality fears and could not prevent herself from obsessively focusing on the eventual prospect of her own death.
