A Difficult Case

     	Two psychiatrists were at a convention.  As they conversed over 
	a drink, one asked, "What was your most difficult case?"

   	The other replied, "I had a patient who lived in a pure fantasy 
	world.  He believed that an uncle in South America was going to 
	die and leave him a fortune.  All day long he waited for a letter 
	to arrive from an attorney.  He never went out, he never did 
	anything, he merely sat around and waited for this fantasy letter 
	from this fantasy uncle.  I worked with this man eight years."

        "What was the result?"

        "It was an eight-year struggle.  Every day for eight years, but 
	I finally cured him.  And then that stupid letter arrived!"
