i found many old ages persons always in sad , and most of them are not very happy. i admit old persons have more experience than young. but why they don't happy? is unhappy an important experience for old persons? so i rather don't have so many experience . what about you? why you choose the unhappy instead ignorance?

people's body change and often the lose of mobility or hormones can make a person depressed Because of the way they are brought up, they are not inclined to realize that there are now medicines that can help them feel better

I would think poverty has something to do with it, also the loss of loved ones. All their friends are gone. Another is that many have aches and pains and cannot do what they used to. And there is still another reason. Some of the old people get a pension, and some of them have put money aside when they were younger, yet the government may only permit them to take so much money out of what they saved up, so they might want to travel to see family in another country, but are not allowed to. Still they find that they cannot do what they used to, cannot go around as much, and these all contribute to unhappiness. I cannot see anyone being unhappy. I am getting up there and I am not.

Hello! No,it is not always true.There is no reason to be sad.Of course some may feel sad because of their health or neglect by the kith and kins.But I don't belong to this category.I am now seventy years old I am quite happy.thanx.
