Dismay, as a noun, means:
Consternation and distress, typically that caused by something unexpected.
Is it correct to say that something is my dismay, (Rather than something happened in my dismay)? For example, would the following be correct:
The mentor abandoned me. He is my dismay.
(As in, the mentor caused me to be distressed).
Would saying that something is your dismay be correct, or how would you go about saying such thing?
