This really resonates. I am in my 30s and had a similar experience (and reaction).
I’m sorry you and so many others in this thread have had this experience. I think anger and a sense of regret/loss are really natural reactions. In my case, I think there was a sense that it was kinder not to directly address/discuss my issues, but really this just delays getting help
