After a.complete physical checkup, with blood tests, etc., my doc: Lor says 1 am in excellent condition; so my complaint can't have an organic basis.. Also 1 have no personal unhappiness from which I might be trying to "escape", into a mental fog. My life has. been extraordinarily free of "unhappy situations."

DEAR R.;S.: Assuming your diagnostician finds no organic dis- irder to account for your mental dullness this past year, then the cause, very likely, is emotional or neurotic. ... Your age, 40, would not of itself bring a. sudden dip in the ability to concentrate, learn and think. However, an. undertow of unconscious fears of social failure, loneliness,- old age, death, etc., and a complex of unfaced frustrations, that were newly agitated by your reaching 40 — which'may-be a turning-point age to you — could be clouding your faculties nowadays. Your tentative idea of returning to college for postgraduate study suggests time on your hands, and nothing resolved thus far, as regards your life work. '-.. It- also suggests a backward- turning grope, towards what you may feel were "the best years of your life" — namely, the college ige years of looking ahead, blindly optimistic that the future would mrely turn out for the best. .
