Decide what you want: Guilt can be thought of as appropriate or inappropriate. If you've done something that you believe to be wrong (e.g., violated someone's rights) you feel guilty. If you've over-spent on shopping, you might feel regret because you have let yourself down by neglecting long-term goals. In order to stop feeling this regret you must lower your long-term goals or stop over-spending.

You'll see on the page that she has stopped answering individual queries because she was being overwhelmed--so, you are not alone.
