Ya. Probably never happen unless one gets some predictably fatal condition in one's middle age years. There is evidently some process whereby people just lose interest in life as they get older, which I do not currently understand but perhaps will, should I acheive advanced age. I have seen it several times. Currently I have a grandmother in her early 80s who cant seem to accept the fact that she is still alive. And healthy! Nothing wrong with her mind at all. Seems to me she should get over the amazement and LIVE! But she prefers to mope. {8-[ spike
