In the fall of 1892 Freud had a patient known as Lucy R. She presented at her own medical physician with symptoms of chronic rhinitis and olfactory hallucinations of burnt pudding. She was referred to Freud for Psychoanalysis. This woman worked as a governess for a widowed man cooking and caring for his children. One day the father who was a violent and abusive man gave out to the governess for a minor matter involving the children. This experience in combination with the olfactory smell of burnt pudding led the woman to fall into a state of hysteria as it was known as at the time.
