  Dear Dale, you are closing on, the word it is something almost like that.

  I think the "cobrança" that author of post was wishing is that feeling when, for example a mother spend the day at work and don´t manage calm down your son, so she let´s him throw a tantrum, break toys etc because she "cobra a si mesma", once the woman in question has a "guilty feeling'' for not having time for child bearing...

   Other example: an accident; a car crash when the other guy was under alcohol influence but, even so, the man that survived don´t forgive himself for the murder (not intentional of other human being) this feeling is that of "cobrança".   In English I don´t know/remember the exact word, so I gave the concept to help bring it out.
