    I shudder to think=I shudder at the thought?

    Dear teachers,

    I know about the usual usage of the idiom “I shudder to think…”. I know also that it is something that you say when you do not want to think about something because it is too worrying or too unpleasant.

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I might use the following modification “I shudder at the thought…”?

    Thank you for the efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    To shudder at the thought of something is okay too.
