I used to feel the same way and then i realised i was making it seem/feel worse by "adding my woes". I forced myself to stop thinking "and then" between my woes and realised that lots of little unconnected unlucky things happen to people all the time. Mine might be a bit extreme but some of the time i was at fault (and thus am in some sort of control over things like that happening again), some of the time i was really unlucky (and thus not to blame and not being personally targeted by the universe), and though i might have gotten more than my share in the first 26 years of my life or so, actually the main difference between me and "lucky" people was the way they viewed their lives.
I have become an insufferable Pollyanna, but i'm much happier and more positive. I hope you feel better soon. x
