Literally just got back from taking my 82-year old mother to the dermatologist and she was asked the same thing. WTF? Mom was there for a tiny spot of sun damage on her nose. The doc is actually a patient of my brother (who is also a doc). But the questions were asked by the nurse before we saw him.

Years ago when my sister was at the OB for a routine yearly exam, the doctor asked my sister if she was abused by her husband in any way. My sister asked why that question. The doctor saw bruises on my sister. My sister said, "I live on a farm and throw hay to horses and sheep twice a day and do a variety of other farm chores. Of course I'm going to have bruises." But she was not offended by the question because spousal abuse is not that uncommon in some rural communities.

I would use the Pinoccio defense from Shrek 3

Nurse: So tell me, are you depressed or have anxiety?
Patient : Uh. Hmm, well, uh, I don't know if I have or have not.
Nurse: You're telling me you don't know?
Patient: It wouldn't be inaccurate to assume that I couldn't exactly not say that it is or isn't almost partially incorrect.
Nurse: So you do know if you have or have not experienced these symptoms?
Patient: On the contrary. I'm possibly more or less not definitely rejecting the idea that in no way with any amount of uncertainty that I undeniably do or do not know if I could probably be, if that indeed wasn't the case. Even if I'm not, or ever knew I was which would mean I'd really have to know if I wasn't.

"Am I depessed or am I anxious? Hmm, let me see now........

I'm sitting on a cold exam table where I have been for 45 minutes. I am waiting for YOU to get this rusty NAIL out of my FOOT, after which you are going to PAINFULLY wash the nail hole out with Betadine, and give me a tetanus shot.

Then you are going to send me a bill for about $500, unless you decide to X-ray my foot- in case there are other nails hiding there- which will bump the charges by about $400.

Now HOW could I be depressed or anxious over THAT? Sounds like the absolutely PERFECT afternoon to me.

BTW, how long have you been making sounds that appear to be speech, but make no sense at all? Does this make you depressed, or feel anxious in any way? "

It wasn't a mess....... I actually had it all right I just didn't know it.
Outstanding!

I have replaced parts in many analyzers at the hospital. I have learned you take out one wire and put the new one in......one at a time. Never take them out all at once.

It just always seems like if it ain't one thing it's a nother around my place. I have a plumbing problem I've been ignoring but I think that's next in line.
My motto is "Don't put both index fingers in the socket at the same time, and everything else is the electrical guy's problem."

I believe electricity is a myth. All such devices actually run on smoke. I find that whenever I let the smoke out of an electrical device it stops working. So, the device runs on smoke... That's my theory anyway!

That explains that putrid smell! It's rotten from being in one space too long!

I was going to say a version of the same thing.

Are you depressed of anxious?

Oh my God! I wasn't when I came in, but now that you point it out, I am anxious! Is it contagious?

And then burst out in tears.

Just remember, nothing hurts quite enough without a little help from the guys in the ER. I avoid them at all costs...

I don't like electrical things. I'm starting to learn more and more about it though.
