Is it mental illness, or am I just defective?

I’m having a really rough week. Except, I’ve been saying that for weeks now, so I’m obviously having a rough month… or year… or life…
I feel like I’m living Murphy’s Law. Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong. I seem to be caught in this cycle of depression and everyday anxiety. The depression hangs around for a while. It gets better, it goes away. Something catastrophic happens, anxiety goes into overdrive, depression comes back.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
No matter what I do, I can’t make everyone happy. I feel like a failure as a friend, girlfriend, daughter, mother, and employee.
I need a vacation from my head.
