Subject: Father’s Day Story
I wanted to follow up with you on how my father did with his first use of the EFS. As you know, he is 94 and has dementia and has also had a brain bleed. Ever since his brain bleed he has been curiously quiet. He used to talk and tell stories about his life – you almost couldn’t stop him. But since the brain bleed he just stopped telling stories unless really pushed to do so.
Well, I put him on the EFS for 15 minutes. After about 5 minutes he started just talking about his life. He kept on talking all evening! What was really the most interesting is that I was not hearing the same old stories he has told for years. These were new – to me – memories of family and friends and just things he used to do and people he knew that I had never heard of. It was amazing. All of a sudden, he just starts talking about so many new things! None of his communication had the distorted flavor of the made up or irrational that his stories have begun to be colored with recently – when he does tell them.
Very impressive change in just a few minutes! WOW! Thanks Justin! Feel free to share this success with anyone you wish to.
