Many very old people are miserable and bitter because they are in pain and because they realize that their lives are almost over. They are also painfully aware that all those dreams they had of doing something worthwhile...writing the great American novel, climbing the highest mountain, contributing to society in some meaningful way.... are never going to be realized. This, in itself, is painful.Well said, AngelMay. Well said. But, even the world's greatest adventurer will be bitter and miserable if his old age is consumed with pain and limited mobility. In fact, I'd say that those knocked down from an active lifestyle probably suffer more. Memories are cold comfort when you have to grunt and groan just to get out of the chair to got to the potty.Hedge
