Ever had someone you wanted to deck? I recently was involved in a conversation about people with "problems" (anyone who had depression or an addiction). A woman in my class was going on and on about how she has no sympathy for those who have issues, they are just wanting attention. She doesn't think they are serious about having a problem. Hell, her daughter was 16 and pregnant, but she never had emotional problems (yes, I had to restrain myself from pointing out the obvious). Then she went on to say "I guess I have no sympathy for depressed people because all that I have gone through. I had cancer and never was upset by it. I just figure, another thing to over come and I never became depressed". I pointed out the medical issue of chemical embalance, and that some can't help the sad feelings because of them (I also have depression issues as well as being an alcoholic). Only to be told, but I had cancer...blah, blah, blah. This isn't the first time she's been on her soapbox raving about how wonderful she is. I almost knocked her out. Ever feel that way?
