Cyranny’s quickie!




This one’s inspired by my parents true and long lasting love. If you could choose, would you prefer to go before your better half, or outlive him or her?





I am not the first blogger to start a ”Question of the day” series. I used to participate to Danny’s Let me ask you a question posts regularly, but since he has almost stopped pubishing them, I thought I’d give it a go. We’ll see if I stick to it, depending on the answers I get!

  1. Not an easy choice. Because I have worked in palliative care for many years – I do kind of see it as the greatest expression of love to support somebody who means the world to me through such a difficult time. I have even joked with Goldfinch that I want him to be free, until he gets sick and then I want him to let me be his nurse (he quite likes the idea of me as a naughty nurse) but, the thought of being there and making sure the man I love had the best possible care with every dignity and comfort would mean a lot.

    On the other hand, I think because I have had the cloud of “anything might happen” since the serious head injuries I received, I think very naturally I have been trying to prepare everyone who loves me that if I did go to sleep earlier that expected, they must not worry. I have found it helpful to me, to think about preparing others so that they are not overly sad. I have tried to make my health concerns less of a burden to others.

    I don’t know if that makes sense – but for me either way, it would be all about giving to the person I love, making it easier for them, showing love with every ounce of strength I had.


  2. Oh man, this is such a difficult question. The thought of life without her is debilitating. But, the thought of her being devastated and having to go on without me isn’t any better. So, to answer your question, I don’t know. 😕
