Life History
Patient born and educated at Mumbai; was the only son to his parents who looked after all his needs. As a child he was very obese and quite obstinate. All his milestones were delayed. He had fear of dark, of being alone and of dogs. He had repeated dreams of being murdered in childhood.

He quit medical studies three months after joining and joined an Engineering college and completed BE (Mechanical). He went on to do MBA and then got a job in a large company as Sales Manager. He made friends easily and maintained good relationships with them. He likes to be among people in a group. Inspite of doing well, he feels insecure about job and money matters. He desires to save more money to protect his future; has tremendous anxiety about money. He is very fastidious. He felt that his disease was not curable. He could not see any horror films or cruelty in films (fear of violence). He had vertigo on looking down from high places.
