They brought a stretcher and wanted to put me on it. I told them that I don't want a stretcher. They said 'Oh, no, you need a stretcher, you are ill' I answered them with an English proverb 'Once the head has been taken off, one does not complain about the haircut.' I descended by myself from the second floor using the staircase and they all the time tried to hold me under my elbows. I told them, 'Hands off' because I thought it was humiliating. I didn't want to make them happy, to show my weakness.
