       Undoubtedly; But at the same time, most people still have the sense of 
immortality (when it comes to being or becoming disabled) that society 
traditionally associates with people my age. "No, it won't happen to me." or 
"Well, I'm not disabled now; Why should I care?"

       Any ideas on how to beat that one, Kynn?
