She is experiencing some pain in the capsule of her right shoulder and epicondylitis, which has sometimes forced her to take time off that is poorly tolerated by her superiors, although it is carrying out her work that causes these pains. In my classes at the medical faculty, I often tell my students that the question that must always be asked is: what role is the illness and physical pain playing in the psychosomatic equilibrium? It seems that the physical pain is protecting her from attacks she has undergone at her workplace; I therefore have a preliminary answer about the destiny of the aggressive drives and their de-fusion from the life drives.
In introducing the first patient, I am now going to develop in more detail the specific observations of the clinical examination in integrative psychosomatics.

We are, of course, in the metabolic syndrome unit, and most of our patients are here for problems relating to excess weight or obesity, and, therefore, cardiovascular risk.
The break with her mother occurred in the same period in which she found her partner, who in this way played an important supporting role. I have wondered, until now, about the maternal relationship (presence of the internalised object) and Marie-Laure’s life drive, but I have not yet wondered about the destiny of the aggressive drives: what does she do when she does not agree? What does she do in a case of conflict? My hypothesis is as follows: she has rejected her mother as a bad mother with whom she has broken; are we therefore dealing with a schizoparanoid core?
