  1. I can’t get the audio to work on this video with Gerda Saunders. (The other videos work fine, so it’s not my settings.) If you’re able to resolve this problem, please email me a link to it. Thanks!

  2. I enjoyed the video immensely and the detail that Gerda provided that included specific instances in her life that she said she was beginning to realize her brain/life was getting different than it had been was the most interesting to me. More of this type of detail would be appreciated. Thank you for this!
