Pansy ? Personally, I've tended to think of myself as a flowering cactus. Anyhow
I understand your anger and how you feel. You are not recognizing the horrors of a very severe depression, which can be equivalent to cancer, and as destructive. YOu have handled tragic losses in your own life well, to a point, though not without bitterness. Perhaps experiences of sad loss and grief, rather than depression as such ? Maybe it would be useful at times for people who feel suicidal within a reasonable life, who want to die but don't have to ; to visit hospices and bring some comfort to people who are going to die even if they don't want to.
But whether a person has cancer or depression, they deserve compassion from us, not anger. I understand your response --- gosh but we've had more suicidal messages thismorning than ever before --- but anger against someone in pain is in itself a disregard for life, of the sort that so annoys you.
