sorry to hear about the rough day they are the worst 

I recently came across a book about peace of mind  by reb zelig plisken and opened up 5o a chapter where he recconemnds an exercise where you think or say repeatedly or at different times of the day "Great thoughts Great feelings Great words Great actions"
its really been helping me maybe it could benefit you

Wow haven't looked at this topic in a while. I used to take myself so seriously lol.
My wife nebach has corona, she's quite sick & nauseous & dizzy & headachey...
So farshtaytzach I'm not going to complain about quarantine, that I get to quit my day job & try my hand at being mommy, Rebbe, Morah, Doctor & cleaning lady.
Just reflecting how this would have been disastrous way back in the olden days before the creator very graciously granted me a program of recovery & the freedom it comes with.
I get to spend time with my kids, concentrate on appreciating & enjoying the time with them.
I can try to be there for my wife in her time of pain, I can miraculously hear out her complaints and not feel the need to escape to my fantasyland.
I can stay up till the wee hours of the morning, alone on my computer, working on my new business the Eibishter gave me - without the drive to surf the net and find whatever gets through my filter.
Hashem, thank you. Thanks for leading me to this site, for leading me to SA, for leading me to life.
Please grant me another day of freedom, of sanity & connection to You.

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...
