Anger in the person dyingEdit
While some people can face their own death with equanimity others can rage against it. This is particularly true if they unexpectedly receive a terminal diagnosis. This anger can have a number of causes:
- Anger at the unfairness of their condition
- Anger towards medical staff for not doing more to deal with their condition.
- Anger at others people reactions to the news of their death.
- The resurrection of old emnities stirred up in the process of life review
The death in the family, particularly of a parent can have a profound efect upon family relationships.
