I don't think it's a question of her being defined by her job. I thinks it's more a question of losing your job, and your ability to get another job in the same field ever again. With children to feed and a competing job market it would have been very hard for this woman to find sustainable work.
Not to mention forevermore being known as that lady that screwed up that time.
Why do people even care about these self proclaimed royals? Diana was the last one worth her weight, the rest are just glorified welfare recipients.
So I'll repeat...and after all that you think taking your life is the solution ? Maybe she was then counting on the fact that if she kills herself, that someone will setup a foundation to feed her children that are now motherless.
There is no angle from which I can condone or understand suicide. Life is hard. Sometimes you've been dealt a #ty hand. But that's it. That's life.
Committing suicide over losing a job and leaving hungry children behind you will never be a solution for anything...ever. Only more problems, at least for the children. The only person that has now been let of the hook is the person that committed the suicide. The burden is on the children and the family now.
It was a chicken sh** and a stupid move...end of story.
I think we have to remember that as a nurse she didn't actually break any codes of conduct by transferring a call......

You can dance around it and "understand" all you want.
No job is worth your life. And what a sad life it is...defined by your job. so without her job, this soul/person is worth nothing ?
First I sincerely hope that you do not ever have any mental illness
So everybody that commits suicide is mentally ill?
If there is mention of this illness, feel free to link it. I may have missed that.
Feeling depressed does not equal mental illness.
The thing is...if this person committed a murder under the same set of circumstances...you would have been all over her. But since she murdered herself...there is an aura of "understanding" and "sympathy" around it.
I simply do not subscribe to this.
Should feel sympathy for the man who has recently killed his girlfriend and than took his own life in front of spectators, claiming hard life and the fact that she left him few days ago. I his mind these are reasons enough. He wasn't proclaimed mentally ill. But a murderer.

I'd like to point out that normally in these prank situations that radio stations do. There must be consent from both sides to air the prank on the radio.
Otherwise it does not air.
But they aired it anyways. And someone committed suicide because of it.
So in a very real sense they are responsible for what happened.
