Do you ever feel like you've had such a bad day that you've completely lost it? What drives you to that point? And more importantly, what helps you recover to normalcy again?

This is very difficult to answer, each person has to find 'their own space'.
Sometimes I have bad days with my work.I mean really really bad days.

When I get home, I go have a warm shower, nice hot drink, find some chocolate....
It works very well for me...
I'm not sure what it is, but a lot of the time I feel like I'm walking around in a fog. I forget things, I misplace things, I say things and later don't recall saying them. This makes me lose it. I easyily get frustrated with myself, and it takes patience on my husband's part. Other times, I'm pretty much on the ball.

Alone time helps me recover.

Let go of the things which are outside of my control and focus on the things I can influence.
Oh and what is normal?
OMG yes! I have 2 toddlers (almost 3 and 14 months), I am presently studying as well as trying to get my business up and running. My partner works nights. My children don't really appreciate the therapeutic benefits of a good night's sleep. And I have limited support. I find myself regularly "losing the plot" and just wondering how on earth I'm going to get it back again. I had a minor breakdown the other night where I actually considered calling my trainer and just cancelling my studies and shutting up my business. But I had a long shower and realised that there a re so many people out there who would so happy to see me quit / fail (including my parents!) so I resolved to keep going just so I can say "I did it!!" I have re-adjusted my expectations of myself and my family and now that I'm not actually expecting any support or help I feel much better. I'm thinking of hiring a housekeeper / nanny for one day a week, but we'll see.
When things are not going as I have planned, I really tend to lose it and my frustration comes out in form of anger and mostly towards the people who are close to me. More recently, I try to think of the worst that can happen if things don't go as planned and when I look at the bigger picture, whatever is making me upset seems negligible and my anger dissipates.
My car kept breaking down and had to be towed twice in a week (and one time was 8 hours out of town so it required me to train it home with kids in tow and then go back the next day) and it spent a week in the shop only to break down second day back on the road. That moment I felt like I was totally losing it!! Car fixed and life back to normal fixed it all...thankfully! ;)
It takes a lot to get me that rattled. It's usually a relationship issues that pushes me to that point. Or if my other half snores all night!
