If I have a good day, then I have a really down, depressed day the next day. I don't think about it - it just happens. And it takes me several days to recover.

Yeah. I wonder if it's like a punishment for having a good day? I've gone through that cycle for years.

This might be something to address with a medical professional...your counselor or therapist? It sounds like you might be punishing yourself for having a good day? Not sure. The causes could be very complex.

You might even have a chemical imbalance. So, again - check with a medical professional to see if you need some medical support to break this painful cycle.

CPT - I suffer from "the other shoe waiting to drop" syndrome. I feel like when something good happens, something bad will happen to counteract the good. And it's proven itself out time after time. So when something good happens, I dare not even believe it myself, and I certainly do not share the good news for that is like inviting the other shoe to drop. This has happened to me my entire life (or just seems that way).

I was notorious for dwelling in the what was and the if only’s. I was spending more of my days in the past and unable to enjoy or appreciate my present.

I know for me I was always good at identifying the bad and usually that accompanied something from my past that I had not yet let go of, and the good days had to be really really good for me to count it.

I’ve learned to accept that life doesn’t have a reverse and the more I continue to look in the rear view mirror the better my chances of crashing are.

Controlling our thoughts of the negative and the gloom and doom is key. Developing a gratitude list has helped me to identify the good things I have taken for granted. If work goes well without any stress it’s a good day. If I am able to say no without guilt it’s a good day. If I accomplish a task I’ve put off, it’s a good day. If I go to the grocery store and the line is not too long, it’s a good day. If I’m able to sit and relax and read a book or a magazine, it’s a good day.

The more good things we can find in our lives the less those old feelings creep in and the dread of the left foot dropping stays away.
