    She clearly describes being in a nursing homes section for the mentally unstable. Tied onto a chair! Four Ladies over eighty, sitting in diapers. She is in her own world dancing in a circle with the radio playing. If we are lucky, and few are, we can avoid this sad waiting room. Read her Biography and you understand where she is coming from… (Report) Reply
