A Happy Client

So NOW I do the Gupta routine, really FEELING the glow of future self and gratitude and certainty. And when done, I muscle test…. asking if my amygdala has stopped firing! If it has, I can move on with my day. If it hasn’t, I can redo the stop-stop-stop and pay more attention to the feeling of joy and health and happiness and sometimes even the ridiculousness of all this.

...

I muscle-test asking “Is my amygdala firing?” If yes, I do stop-stop-stop routine. If vacillating, I do it again. If I get a strong response of NO the amygdala is not firing, I just go on with my day.

...

The timing for receiving this treatment couldn’t have been better. Having to exist in the circumstances I have found myself these past 2 weeks would have been really really really tough if I were still reacting. I had people in the house to inspect, to pack boxes, to load the moving van… then we were on the move for the 4 day drive, staying at less than desirable rooms along the way. I am not eating organic food while we travel. And yet!!!…. I am well! Our move went well but my big big big big BIG news is that I no longer have mcs! I am cured! I now am working on curing the cfs. Please tell everyone on facebook that I am well and that the move was good and that as soon as my computer is connected (grrr) I will be back and tell THE WORLD!!! IT FEELS SO GREAT, AND FUN, AND FREEING, AND EXCITING… to be well again

I have seen that a core belief of people with MCS is “the world is a hostile place.” I have heard this belief often stated in various words in MCS posts on other forums. I believe this pattern of thinking is what engenders an exaggerated amygdala reaction to environmental chemicals. Toxins in the environment confirm this belief and the reaction builds as in the other stress illnesses. This is the pattern I work on the most.

...

Personally I cannot separate MCS from food intolerances. I have both and they seem fundamentally related to me. After studying the program I begin to suspect that lively family arguments during dinner when I was a child may have contributed to food sensitivities. I have done nothing to attempt to desensitize myself systematically from chemicals and foods. My experience is that working the program is causing the sensitivities to diminish on their own. I push myself into eating more and more foods as I improve and back off from time to time when I pushed too far. This seems to work. The chemical sensitivities are diminishing on their own. I spilled gasoline yesterday and was not ill from it even without a mask. As is to be expected times of stress result in more symptoms. I have found that, when I can, adding physical meditation (dancing meditation in my case) greatly ameliorates my brain fog.

I suffered from multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), fibromyalgia, electrical sensitivity and food sensitivities. I was sick for a decade. I lived in my basement with the electric off, hiding from everything. During the winter I slept in a vehicle in the driveway so my family could be in the house with the heat on. I went to one of the doctors in the country that is among one of the foremost knowledgeable in the disease. I was treated with provocation/ neutralization therapy, sauna therapy, hyperbaric therapy, nutritional IV’s, food rotation diet, a crazy amount of supplements, etc! I spent $80,000 cash in an effort to get better. The therapies mentioned above helped me some but I just kept getting worse. Then – my wife found Ashok Gupta’s program (https://guptaprogram.com). I bought it and didn’t think it would work. It sat on my desk for over a year until I was SO desperate that I would try anything! So, I tried it… within 2 weeks 50% of my issues resolved. Then they started to cascade and disappear. I was shocked and amazed. Within 6 months I had my life back. It turned my life AROUND! I am CURED of my ills. It saved my life. Who am I, I own a real estate investment company… worth many millions. I am a graduate of Cornell University, an Ivy League school. Ashok saved my life.

Dear Ashok and Staff, Just a note to let you know that I have had my first success with using your program. I know that you probably get a lot of feedback from people with Chronic Fatigue, but I have MCS. I have had severe MCS for eight years and have been too frightened to go into most public buildings or even outdoor parks for almost eight years. It’s been much worse in the past four years as my illness progressed.

...

Well, this week I went into a grocery store and its bathroom (we chose a relatively safe one but it still was very scented), the dentist (lots of chemicals) and my dog’s Veterinary clinic. I got through them all using the “soften and flow.” I did the soften and flow to make sure my body and mind were relaxed before entering any of these places and kept it up as much as possible while inside and after coming out. Coming out of these places can sometimes be the worst part because that’s when I realize how much scent I have on me. I just kept up the s and f and observed my body begin to react and then focussed my mind on that part of my body with the s and f. It worked really well.

...

Before doing your exercises I would have “freaked out” the minute I smelled anything which would have, of course, immediately sent my brain reeling (that’s why I couldn’t go anywhere – my brain would get so “toxic” that I couldn’t think, speak or walk properly after an exposure). It’s interesting that while chemicals are toxic, and I blood tests show that I do have a lot of them in my system, my reaction to the smells was what made my reactions so bad.

...

This week my brain was fine. I smelled the smells but kept up the s and f and just noticed how calm I could stay in their presence. No “neurotoxic” reactions.

...

These were first baby steps, though quite huge for me. I won’t pretend that I’m cured or that I am even willing to go into more heavily scented places right now. But I have conquered one level of fear. I’ve been in fight/flight not only for the eight years of my illness (since the 9/11 Trade Center Towers were attacked in New York City) but much longer. So I have a lot more work to do on my brain. Just want to thank you for giving me the tools.

In my twenties, I had chronic fatigue twice for six months at a time, though I managed to shake it off. I was living a very stressful, highly paced, unhealthy lifestyle, working very long hours. One day, I was at my computer at work, and felt flu-like symptoms. I went outside, and they disappeared. I got back to my desk, and started to feel ill again. This continued, and my health fairly quickly deteriorated over the next few weeks and months, with almost constant insomnia, migraines, nausea, racing heartbeat, muscle weakness, tingling in my feet, stomach pains and loose stools, burning face and other symptoms. I now know that these are all malfunctions of the autonomic nervous system due to a dysfunctional limbic system, but had no idea at the time. I was diagnosed at a private clinic (Breakspear Hospital) with Electrical Hypersensitivity (EHS).

...

I had EHS for over 15 years, and it got worse and worse. I spent about £20,000 on private doctors and alternative health, including some very wacky things! The only thing that really helped was chiropractic treatment, but it was expensive as I had to go three times a week to see any benefit, and as ultimately I had to sell my house and leave my career due to my EHS, it was beyond my budget. No doctor could help me. Family and friends had never heard of the condition, and most thought I was making it up, I was mad or that I had a psychological problem.

...

At my worst, I could not watch TV, could not use a computer, even a laptop on the battery function, could not be near certain lights, so going out was difficult, and could not talk on a mobile phone for more than a few seconds. It didn’t make any sense to me, but my symptoms persisted. Modern life was defeating me. It got so bad that at one point I was driven to consider suicide, after five days with hardly any sleep.

...

Then one day I heard the Gupta Programme mentioned on one of my EHS forums. A lady said that her boyfriend had been cured of EHS by using the technique. I did some research and realised I had nothing to lose, as there is a money-back guarantee.

...

I managed to watch the DVDs on the days I was not so bad (using a projector and sitting very far away), and although it took me a long time to watch them all, I put the techniques into practice. Immediately I began to feel a little better, and over the next six months I showed huge improvement. I misunderstood the instructions about how long to meditate for, and was meditating with the CDs for two hours every day! One day, I realised that I was about 70% better.

...

I must admit that after I reached a certain level of recovery, I was not as diligent about doing the rounds as I could have been. Who knows, I might have achieved 100% improvement by now if I had worked harder (or is that the Achiever personality type rearing its head?!). I did have a bad dip recently, perhaps because I had become complacent, but with the use of the techniques again this dip only lasted a week. I am now committed to continuing until I see even more improvement.

It seems that Gupta’s way of thinking about the limbic system is becoming the gold standard of dealing with CFS, MCS, EHS and other nervous system-related problems. If it is not, it should be! It makes total sense to me and I am so glad I have found it. I am now nearly normal again! It just takes a shift in perspective from thinking that EMFs are bad and harmful, to seeing that it is just your amygdala that is seeing them as so. After all, most people are able to live with electricity in their life without any problems!

I find that it also helps not to associate yourself with your problem. Don’t rush to tell everyone you meet that you have EHS, don’t be active on forums about it, don’t read up on how awful EMFs are and how bad TVs and computers are for you. Be separate from your condition, and then it will separate from you!

...

Thank you thank you thank you to wonderful Ashok.

I completed the Gupta Program two years ago. I had suffered from multiple chemical sensitivities and electrical sensitivities. I have a lot of fatigue. And a friend of mine had great success with the Gupta Program, and she highly, highly recommended it. So, I tried it. I was very diligent and committed, and I found that I grew tremendously in the program. I had done lots of yoga, lots of therapy, lots of other modalities, but nothing really helped to transform myself like the Gupta Program did.

I now have far less electrical sensitivities. Very minor, if any, multiple chemical sensitivities. But mostly, I just feel better. I feel stronger emotionally. I feel like I excavated my true self with the program. It was a program of self-knowledge and self-discovery, and I’m really grateful that I did it. Good luck to anyone who tries it. It was wonderful. Thanks.

My health became challenged in 1993 while I was remodelling my house. I had also experienced a number of highly stressful events preceding the remodel. I developed flu symptoms and was quite ill. The symptoms lasted six weeks, and then, six months later, I became ill again with the same symptoms. This time, I did not get well again. I began the long and painful journey of dealing with multiple chemical sensitivity and associated disorders.

...

I was 52 years old at the time and began the odyssey of searching for who could adequately diagnose and treat me. I followed the treatment plan of each of the 22 doctors I consulted over the first 6½ years, but instead of recovering, my health deteriorated more. I was given many different diagnoses, but no one in the health community seemed to know what I was suffering from. Some doctors thought I was malingering or that I had a psychiatric disorder. I was prescribed antidepressants that made me violently ill; one antidepressant, in particular, made me suicidal. But I was too weak and sick to even take my life.

...

At my worst, I was jaundiced, had bursts of sobbing out loud for no reason, contemplated suicide, had pain throughout my body, was highly sensitive to noxious smells, had burning skin with rashes, had cataracts, shuffled when I walked, had disabling fatigue, uncontrolled explosive diarrhea (sometimes in public), and was seriously cognitively impaired. I was so cognitively impaired that I could not even tell time. I was unable to schedule an appointment. I would get lost traveling only two blocks away. A psychological examination of my executive function showed that I was severely impaired. I was relieved because I sincerely thought I had Alzheimer’s disease.

...

I was fortunate enough to find a doctor who saved my life. I improved, but I did not get well. My primary diagnoses were environmental illness or multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, IBS, malabsorption, food sensitivities, and toxic encephalopathy. Shortly thereafter I was diagnosed with breast cancer as well.

...

Although I was very ill, I always believed there would be a cure me for me. I thought it would be some type of medication or medical protocol. I hoped that multiple chemical sensitivity would eventually be recognized as a legitimate illness.

...

During those early years, most of my close friends lost touch with me. I felt very isolated. A young woman who was my best friend, and my lifeline when I was going through intensive treatment, took her life. I do think that was my lowest point. I was homebound for three and a half years to avoid exposures. Fortunately, I had my cat Pete and my husband Fraser. Fraser worked full time, did all the shopping and cooking, and cared for me. He gave me antigen injections (three full syringes daily for nine years) and about 200 nutritional IVs, along with agents to help me detoxify. My refrigerator looked like a clinic with vials and IV bottles. I had a very large oxygen tank in my living room. We were advised to put a tile floor in our bedroom, where I only had a bed and a glass and metal table. All of the clothes were removed from the closets, and there were no curtains. I had become hyper sensitive to just about everything in my environment, even cotton, so I slept on silk sheets that felt like a parachute, and all of the covers would slide off the bed. Life was extremely challenging. I was frightened, hopeless, and isolated.

...

I was a psychotherapist with a thriving practice. I was attractive and highly respected in my community. I went from being physically attractive, intelligent, successful, and valued to being a struggling, confused, fragile, and vulnerable woman.

...

Five years after my initial cancer diagnosis, I developed breast cancer again in the same breast and had a radical mastectomy. In addition to two surgeries with radiation for breast cancer, I also had an emergency appendectomy. My gall bladder removed as well. I had cataract surgery and became highly reactive to the lens implant. I also had a partial knee replacement that was a failure and had to have it replaced.

...

I had been a psychotherapist and had some very challenging cases that certainly added to my chronic stress level. I thought of what I was experiencing as compassion fatigue. After ten or eleven years of treatment for chemical sensitivity, I thought I could practice again treating people with MCS via the telephone. My health immediately began to deteriorate, but I did not make the connection that it was the stress of treating people with the same illness as me that was causing my health to deteriorate.

...

Later I got a call from one of the people I had treated, who had been far more ill than me. He reported he had gotten 90% better by using neural brain retraining. So at age 73, I began the Gupta Program. I dove right into it and was totally committed. I knew if my friend could get well that I, too, could get well.

...

I had been down many blind alleys finding a cure, so I talked it over with my nutritionist, and he said, “Go for it! It does not involve a shot or a supplement. You have nothing to lose. Besides it is very inexpensive.” He was right; I had spent about $350,000 out-of-pocket on my health at this point.

...

I began the program with full faith in its efficacy. I immediately liked Ashok Gupta and readily related to his gentle nature and the wisdom of his program. It made sense to me.

...

I began by using food to do the Seven Step Technique and actually began the process by actually holding a piece of bread to desensitize. As I held the bread, I let all of my fear of reacting to the gluten surface, and then said, “Stop, stop, stop” and continued with the rest of the steps. Then the following day, I actually put a piece of bread in my mouth. In three and a half weeks I was eating foods with gluten, dairy, shellfish, onions, garlic. In about six months, I was eating everything. I felt so liberated. I recall going to a restaurant and ordering a hamburger and swooning over it. I was swooning like Sally in the “When Harry Met Sally” restaurant scene with Billy Crystal. Every morsel confirmed that I was well and could eat whatever I wanted.

...

I also used the same technique with fragrances and found that I was no longer reactive to fragrances and did not fear reacting. I recall being in an elevator with a man with cologne, and instead of closing my nostrils and grabbing my mask from my purse, I just deeply breathed it in. I liked the way it smelled!

...

I now can go anywhere I want now. I can do anything I want and eat anything I want. I consider myself well.

...

I have had dips, one of which was after I had knee replacement surgery. The surgeon did not follow my instructions about what anesthesia to use, and I had a reaction. I also reacted to the tape that was used to close the incision. I am certain that my fear and anger at feeling helpless contributed to the dip. So I now often use the Acceptance and Surrender Meditation. I know that the most important time to do the Gupta techniques (Seven Step Technique, Soften and Flow Meditation, and the Accelerator Technique) is during a dip. Of course, I also had the most resistance then as well, but I just did it anyway and was able to come through it.

...

I have travelled from Louisiana to New York City twice and was even able to attend the workshop with Ashok this past November (2016). I just wanted to meet him and express my gratitude. I also wanted a hug ;-). I consider myself about 95% well, and I wanted others to know that it is possible to be fully well again.

...

My days are filled with activities that I enjoy, and if I am doing something that I don’t enjoy, I stop doing it. I catch negative thoughts, stop them, say a prayer for the person and change my focus to loving thoughts that comfort me. I continue to meditate twice daily and do the Seven Step technique daily. I have written about 70 vignettes, illustrated with photographs, about the happiest time in my life. I use one of these when I am doing Step 6 of the technique. My head is so full of memories of the happiest times in my life that there is no longer much room for negative or fearful thoughts.

...

I have taken Ashok’s Coaching Webinar Series and have just completed my third series of 12 sessions and plan to take the next one. I always look forward to reinforcing this new healing paradigm. I listen to Ashok’s Meaning of Life Experiment meditations daily and watch the videos. I am committed to doing whatever it takes to be able enjoy every precious moment of my life.

...

I have practiced forgiveness exercises of myself as well as others. I say: “I forgive myself for everything I’ve done wrong in my life, and for what I failed to do. I forgive myself for mistakes I made unknowingly. I also forgive myself for being neutrally brain impaired. I also forgive others for everything they’ve done wrong in their entire lives and for what they failed to do and ask God to bless them with everything I want for myself—vibrant health, happiness, peace of mind, prosperity, a strong connection with the God of their understanding, a mutually loving relationship with family and friends, and a loving and generous spirit, and I am set free. I am liberated when I forgive others and bless them.”

...

When I was at the workshop in New York City, Ashok asked me to share with the group what helped me the most, and I said, “JUST DO IT!”

...

I am now 75 years old and I am living proof that you are not too old to do the Gupta Program. I am also living proof that the length of time that you’ve been ill does not prohibit your recovery. I am also living proof that how long you’ve been ill is of no consequence to recovering fully.

...

I am not willing to waste one moment of my precious life. I am so very grateful to Ashok Gupta for developing a program that has given me my life back and made me well. I am filled with gratitude. Having been seriously chronically ill for 22 years, I have made a commitment not to waste one precious moment of my life by fretting, having fear about reacting, slipping into negativity, having regret about the past or fear of the future. I will live in the joy of the present moment.

Thanks Ashok!

...

P.S. I am Fraser, Dian’s husband, I can attest to the fact that the Gupta is effective. I have seen Dian improvement rapidly since working diligently on neural retraining. She is fully committed to the program because she wants to be well. I am glad to have my wife back.

Dear Ashok,

Greetings from Germany!

...

Today I would like to write to you to say that my life is a further example which shows that your programme works against MCS. I was fortunate enough to come across your programme after less than 2 years of suffering from MCS (during which I went through times of sleeping in the forest, of withdrawing from social life for fear of things like perfumes, odours from carpets or other indoor chemicals, exhaust fumes, etc. and I was on sick-leave for almost 12 months). Before I learned about your hypothesis and re-training methods, I had seen videos on Youtube with testimonies of people who said that they had been healed from MCS through certain re-training techniques, but they did not make clear references to who or what had healed them. I had read a lot about brain research and I was treated by a physician for stress symptoms for quite some time before a friend of mine urged me to look at the website of a Swiss MCS support group. There I found a link to a discussion forum with a post from someone who explained eloquently how the Gupta Program had helped him and why he thought that the criticism of the programme mainly came from people who had never tried it.

...

I followed the link from that post to your website, read your explanations there, and over the following few days watched some of your Youtube videos. As everything you said sounded ever so plausible to me and fit in with other things I had read and heard before, I ordered your DVD set. And what can I say, I did not even have to wait until I got to the exercises which you recommend. Once I had understood what MCS is all about and where it comes from, I started getting better, and my over-sensitivity towards chemical smells started decreasing.

...

It took me about 4 to 5 weeks before I could enter certain places again at least for some time which I had had to avoid completely before. My chemical sensitivity did not go away all at once, but I did notice the difference after those few weeks! It has been about 6 months now since my first contact with your programme, and my life is back to normal – even though at times I can still smell certain odours more sensitively than before. I am able to work in my job again, I can live in my house without having to fear the nights any more in which exhaust fumes from the street nearby used to make it impossible for me to find any sleep. And recently I even walked into the cosmetics department of an organic supermarket and enjoyed the smells there! They suddenly appeared to be true fragrances again, while for a long time before I had only perceived them as a stench…

...

Therefore I would like to say a big THANK YOU for your programme and for making it available to the public – without making people pay a fortune for it…

...

I have started and will continue trying to share my positive experiences with others who are affected by MCS. But so far I have learned that this sharing is not often welcomed with arms open wide… Scepticism and sometimes downright aggressivity seem to be a widespread attitude – usually from people who only know your programme by hearsay.

...

I think that I will soon also make another appointment with the doctor who offered me his (sound and non-conventional-medicine) stress treatment for several months and whom I have not seen in quite a while because I feel so much better. He treats patients with MCS and has a good approach, but at least until autumn of last year, he was quite apparently not yet aware of the “missing link” which is provided by your programme.

...

I would be glad if a lot of people with MCS (or CFS, or fibromyalgia, etc.) learned more about your hypothesis and if they were open enough to try this approach for themselves, even if everybody around them tells them that there is no cure for their problem. And I will try to contribute my share in order to make this happen.

Dear Ashok. I’ve been meaning to write to you for a while to say THANK YOU so much for your fantastic programme.

...

I discovered it about a year ago when I started suffering from severe headaches after a kitchen refurbishment. I have taken a while to write to you as I wanted to be 100% better before doing so.

...

My headaches started after having a laminate floor laid in our house but they didn’t go away even after the smells and fumes had died down, in fact as time went on, I become sensitive to many other volatile organic compounds, candles, smoke, fires and even friends’ perfumes and it began to realise that I had some form of chemical sensitivity. I was at this time feeling negative about our house, our new kitchen and after two air analyses showing that we had high levels of volatile organic compounds and formaldehyde, I had trouble letting go of the feeling that the kitchen was a toxic space. For 3 months I suffered with headaches, dizziness, a bad taste in my mouth every time I went into the kitchen. The situation wasn’t helped by the two air experts telling me that I had probably developed a chemical sensitivity that wouldn’t just go away with time!

...

Other family members had sore throats and dizziness at the time of the refurbishment, but I think because I was there the day the solution / glues were laid on the floor, it seemed likely that the chemical sensitivity commencement e.g. with an initial high dose of a substance, led to my immune system becoming over sensitised,

...

After a couple of months, my sense of smell had become so strong that I would sneeze in the presence of other strong smells. At this point, I could even smell plastic bags, washing detergents, magazines, that I hadn’t noticed ever before had a smell, they were suddenly overpoweringly strong, as was soap, shampoos, diesel fumes, friends’ perfumes, always resulting in a lot of sneezing and a buzzing sensation in my head which culminated in a full-blown headache.

...

What really disturbed me about my situation was that nobody understood what I was experiencing, how could they? No one reacts to these everyday chemicals and yet there I was reacting to everything. Trips to London resulted in my nose becoming congested, sneezing, head buzzing and headaches. At the time I couldn’t believe that this had happened to me, at that point I had trouble believing that the symptoms were caused by anything other than physical reactions that were irreversible.

...

I was so desperate to get back to normal and a life without debilitating headaches that I took myself off to Thailand to a detox retreat, however, by this time my lips were also tingling and I had a horrible sensation on my tongue. I recall the airport smelt so strongly of perfume as did the plane that I spent most of the 13-hour flight with a pain over my eye and horrible headache.

...

I was frustrated – I felt so trapped in my own body and my anxiety was building. I spent a week at the detox resort and, despite everyone being so generous and caring, I came back and I was still reacting to the kitchen and other smells.

...

I was beginning to panic, and the underlying fear that I had MCS and would have headaches forever was debilitating. At this point, I ‘d read so many negative accounts of people’s lives and how they were affected by MCS that I really was at my lowest point. My doctor prescribed Diazepam – which for anyone that knows me, was such a huge deviation from who I am, I loathe taking pills (especially something so addictive and mood changing) and I have never suffered from anxiety or depression, but at this point I needed something! Fortunately, I only took it for a few days and whilst it made the headaches less painful, I knew I could only take it for a short period.

...

This was when I discovered your programme. Your theory fitted my scenario perfectly, I read a few reviews plus watched the video of your explanation, e.g. being caught in the figure of eight loop, even though, at that stage, I was convinced it was too late for me. I also tested my cortisol levels, they were very high. I followed your advice and after a few months of meditating, doing the 7 step process, watching the webinars and finding Frances Goodall I was well on my way to recovering.

...

Today I can tell you that I’m 100% better, after a few months already I’m almost taking it for granted, even though I was completely convinced this was a condition that was irreversible (and you were right, so many people put their negative experiences online but there isn’t much positive stuff out there!), but here I am. I can wear perfumes, sit next to fires, even walk into newly decorated rooms and don’t have any reactions. I can walk around London in heavy traffic and no sneezing or headaches. Also, my sense of smell seems to have normalised and I can no longer smell detergents and people as I used to. It’s as if someone has turned down the volume for the smell.

...

To give you some idea of timescale: my reaction to the initial chemicals in the floor and kitchen happened at the end of Sept 16, I went on the detox week November, started the Gupta programme end of Dec and by Feb I could be in the kitchen without reacting and gradually all of the other reactions dissipated around June 17 and were totally gone by Nov 17.

...

I used other modalities too, such as those taught by Frances Goodall (who was also integral in helping me), I got rid of all perfumed substances in my house for 3 months, spent a week on a Rosen intensive course and then the final thing that seemed to help convince me that I was healthy and wouldn’t react to smells was 3 sessions of hypnotherapy. Alongside all of this, I took supplements, Vitamin C, B vitamins and glutathione, drank lots of water ( I’m a nutritional therapist so was able to address that side of things). It did take a while though, and I did have a return of symptoms whenever I was stressed or unhappy, but by this time I was able to assure myself that it was just a temporary reaction. Today, I’m so well that looking back and reflecting, it was as if it happened to another person.

...

Anyway excuse the drama and length of this account, what I really I wanted to say to you Ashok is thank you so much for sharing your story, your solutions, and know that, when I was at my lowest point, it was your videos and cheerful voice that kept me going and gave me hope.

...

Your programme really works and I hope by sharing my story that you can get some insights into helping others and knowing that another person has overcome her sensitivities.
