I just wanted to give an update on my friend(1) on the 5 supplement regimen to try and improve her memory. This past Friday she came to visit and we watched a movie in the evening. The next day, we were talking with another friend(2) and friend1 told the story of the movie to friend2 in great detail! To say I was impressed would be an understatement. She told the story in such detail, I couldn't believe this was the same person from a year ago who couldn't remember just a short snippet of the movie when I had gone to the bathroom and asked her what I had missed. Friend2 later told me that he could clearly see the improvement in her and he said she seems so happy now!
When friend2 wasn't around, I told friend1, "You realize you couldn't have done that just 1 year ago, don't you?"
She looked at me and smiled and then she said, "Yes, I know, and I like it!"
Then she said something that surprised me. She said she realized that back then she couldn't remember, but in her mind she had rationalized that she couldn't remember because she wasn't interested in the movie. I imagine this is a coping mechanism to help deal with memory issues because the alternative reason is too hard to face head on and admit to yourself.
She also clarified for me what she meant when she had to write things down before she did a google search of anything on her phone. She said that whenever she thought of something she wanted to google search, she had to write it down right away or by the time she got her phone and got to google, she had already forgotten what she was going to search for! Now she says she never has to write things down anymore! Not scientific in anyway, but imo, she has improved further to a level of a younger person! I am very happy for my friend!
