I feel terrible.

October 2021

I saw the dialogue from a textbook as below:

Caller 1: Hello, Dr. Hilda. I’m calling about my daughter. She’s… she’s dating an older man.

Dr. Hilda: Oh? How old are these two people?

Caller 1: My daughter’s 24, and this man is 42.

Dr. Hilda: Mm-hmm.

Caller 1: I told her she had to stop seeing him, and… and now she won’t speak to me. I feel terrible. Tell me, Dr. Hilda, what should I have done?

Question: I'd like to know what "I feel terrible" means in this sentence.

Thank you!!!
