Yes, it happens to me too, and I hate it!! I don't know how to combat it, either, except maybe writing more stuff down. I keep telling myself I'm going to start doing this - (as soon as I get my act together, that is!)
I agree with Sherrine, though, the more upset we get, the more we (or at least, I) start spiraling downward, mentally, physically, and spiritually. It's almost like a gravitational pull that I have to constantly work against.
