     My Mom has dementia and is 79-years-old. We went to meet her new doctor. The first thing my Mom said to him was "I don't care what you do to me, but there will be no female exam. I haven't had anything in there in 40 years and I'll be damned if your putting anything in there now." She left Doc and I both speachless and we both ended up having a little chuckle.
