Was it hard dealing with the survivor guilt? I had a friend who was also a flight attendant for United during 9/11.
She had some real problems in the years following the attack. Felt like better people then her had sacrificed their lives while (in her opinion) a loser like her got to live (she was a wonderful and caring person, even payed her roommates rent for a few months when they lost their job).
Thankfully she got the help she needed before going completely off the deep end. She’s got a family now and doing really well.
We haven’t spoken in a few years but I know she was still struggling when 9/11 would come up every year.

Thank you for the answer.
From my perspective I can understand both sides, seeing her reaction to everything was heartbreaking and really gave me a perspective on what survivors guilt means.
I don’t want to give to much info but I know she frequently flew out of NY and was actually their in the days before the attack.
I want to send her this link but I think it’s probably better to let sleeping dogs lie.

I could be wrong but I’m thinking that’s only for flight crews that were working on 9/11.

Okay, that’s why I said I could be wrong.
Still probably not available to the general public though.
