I know you're just venting. We can all understand where you are coming from (and that place sucks when you are there). If you are truly playing the same game, then it is just a cold streak that you are running through (which you probably already know). We all go through it.
Sometimes, taking the few days off is the best thing you can do. I've forced myself to step away before. Spent some extra time with the family (they got something out of it too). It can refresh your perspective, help tighten up tiny gaps that started for form from the frustration of always having the second best hand, etc. You may still come back to a cold streak, but you'll be better prepared to deal with it mentally. And like any other streak, there is an end coming.
