Manic Monday #121

If your personality had to be summed up as a sandwich, what kind of sandwich would you be?
Hmmmm... I'm going to go with a meatball sub. And I'm not going to give you the in-depth analysis of why... just because. :)

If you knew that someone was dying, but they didn’t know, would you tell them the truth or deceive them about it? I work in a nursing home, and I have been in this situation. It really depends on the person and their condition.... if someone has dementia, there's no point in telling them, because each time you have to tell them again and they will go through all the emotions all over again. Why do that to them? On the other hand, if someone is alert and oriented, I think they should know... at work that decision is not mine to make, but if it was in my personal life, yes, I would tell them.

Do you dress the same when you are depressed as you do when you are very happy? Not really- when depressed I prefer to stay at home & not have anyone over, and if I know I'll just be seeing the kids all day, I wear old, comfy clothes, like my favorite pair of ratty old sweats & a soft t-shirt.

Thanks to Lisa for hosting Manic Monday!


  1. Hey - I'm curious about why you chose that sandwich. When at home, you have to dress comfortably - no matter what mood.

  2. Hehehe … I didn’t explain MY sandwich choice either … figured I’d leave it to others to draw their own conclusions (or not). Enjoyed your thoughtful response to #2 and learning a bit more about you through #3. I’ve answered the questions at Small Reflections today.
    Hugs and blessings,

  3. I've always admired people who work in nursing homes. You are special angels!


  4. Oh, I can't wait to do this next week :) I enjoy meme's when I can remember to do them LOL. As for the dying question, I too have been there - when my beloved Great Grandma was dying of brain cancer no one told her that the dr couldn't get it all and she would die. I felt like they were lying to her and was angry. My Great Grandma was a Godly woman and I feel that she wouldn't have feared death. My family thought it best to just let her live the rest of her life without knowing. I would rather know - there would be things I would do, make some needlepoints and quilts to pass on to Grandchildren and Great grandchilden etc. And spend much more time with family :) So yes, I would tell them and I would expect someone to tell me.
