Hello BG, nice to hear from you again,
Sounds like a perfect case for CBT --- a set of habits of thought and behaviour which create unhappy situations for you, and where changing these assumptions and the way you respond to them, could remove the problem.
If you have ever read the great Winnie the Pooh books, this is what I call the Eeyore Syndrome. Eeyore had a great talent for seeing the gloomy side of everything Ho, HO! Merriment and whatnot!" as he would say.
And I think Cj's point was that if you start with such a profoundly negative set of expectations, those themselves tend to create situations which appear to confirm them.
