Rodrigue (1968) writes of the difficulty the physician in us has in facing what is “incurable”, and Lussier (1960), in a paper on the analysis of a boy with a congenital handicap, implies that there may be room for a little denial which will help to foster development. My denial was unconscious. At this stage I focused my work on the irrational anxieties which were preventing Adam from living within his body, a body which was not wearing out or in imminent danger of death. Perhaps it was this approach that brought results or perhaps it was simply that in the transference I was now experienced by Adam as the giver of life-giving transfusions instead of as the monster-doctor about to trap and devour him.
About the time that Adam recovered his physical energy his relationship to Susie improved and settled down to become an apparently normal blend of sibling rivalry and affection. I was left wondering “where” Adam had been living during the six months that he was on such bad terms with Susie, before he had vitalised his own body. Perhaps I had misconstrued the problem or had been unaware of some important aspect of the transference. Adam maintained his gains during the long summer holiday which followed six weeks after session 25.
The first session introduces the theme of Adam’s contrasting feelings of vitality and limpness and his fear that his body will wear out. The second session illustrates the projective mechanism by which he felt he could displace his vitality into Susie. The role of his early experience of blood transfusions becomes apparent. Session 22 Adam came to treatment with a purple ice-lolly, instead of his normal supply of sweets, and a limp balloon. From his pocket he produced a packet of seeds and ten old coins which he said had been a present from his remedial teacher, a reward for reading ten books.
