...we avoid hospitals because ... they'll kill you there. They overtreat you. And when they see how old you are, and that you still have a mind, they treat you like a curiosity: like "Exhibit A" and "Exhibit B." Like, "Hey. nurse, come on over here and looky-here at this old woman, she's in such good shape...." . Most of the time they don't even treat you like a person, just an object.
