Why Do I Feel Guilty?

23 May

As I mentioned the other day, I was rear-ended while leaving church the other day. It wasn’t a “serious accident” and aside from a little soreness, all is well with us. The car is already in the shop and I’m scooting around town in a rental. Thankfully all the claim stuff is going smoothly, though they did find additional repairs that needed to be done and rather than 4 days to fix I just got an email saying it would be next Friday. Breathe. Because the Thursday after that is moving day and I’m going to need my car to move across the country.

What I’m at a loss over, is the amount of guilt I’m feeling over this whole thing. I didn’t do anything but sit at a stop sign and WHAM! Why do I feel guilty? I know I shouldn’t, but I do. I feel guilty for the claim that is going through the other driver’s insurance company. I feel bad that I had to replace my car seats. I even feel guilty for the nagging back pain that took me to the urgent care center for x-rays this morning.

I should be Super-Mommy and sale right through all of this right?

I wonder if there some technical-psychological term for what I’m feeling. My eye is twitching and my blood pressure was high for the very first time in my life.

I think I need to go lie down.

Mr Crabby Pants is napping and I think I’ll take my cue from him.
