When it feels like the world is against you, a few things can make it somewhat better. A bucket of choco chip ice cream is one, binge watching Community with your therapy dog is another. But the most potent antidote known to man is a bittersweet one, and it’s knowing that someone is having a day even more vile than you are.

Whether it’s a spilled coffee or “as luck would have it” moment, get ready for a barely legal therapy list down below as compiled by Bored Panda. Be sure to check out our previous posts with bad, worse, and 100% evil days here, here, and here and don’t forget to let us know how your day is going so far in the comment section.

Even if there’s no skip button for those 24-hour hell on earth benders, at least we can all have a laugh at them.

Previously, Bored Panda reached out to Vasia Toxavidi, a counselor and accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), to find out about ways of dealing with mishaps and developing psychological resilience.

According to Vasia, even the smallest mishaps like “throwing our morning coffee on us or even getting a text or an email we don’t like can affect the rest of our day.” A typical reaction is “Oh, great start to the day!” but according to the counselor, the negative bias can directly affect the course of events.

Scientists say that the reason we are all wired for ‘negatively biased’ thinking is because negative events and emotions have a greater impact in our brains than the positive ones. Even the smallest things that generate negative reactions can snowball into the forecast for the rest of the day, or even the week.

According to Vasia, we end up creating a self-fulfilling prophecy because we look at the world through lenses triggered by anger, fear, or the expectation that something will go wrong. And in that sense, the reality is only how we perceive it.

So as humans, we tend to not only forecast things to go badly because of otherwise meaningless mishaps, we tend to fixate on virtually any negative moments. Whether it’s recalling insults better than praise, reacting more strongly to negative stimuli than to positive, thinking about negative things more frequently than positive, it all contributes to our behavior.

Just Lost Thousands Of Dollars Worth Of Product At Work. Most Likely Getting Fired

Just Lost Thousands Of Dollars Worth Of Product At Work. Most Likely Getting Fired

UPDATE: It's bell pepper, about $250 a kilo and we lost 20 kilos in total. What happened was I was discharging the product inside the container and I thought I was completely done because none was coming out. I undo all of the screws, lift it up, and a shit ton poor's out. It turned out that the valve closed due to the vibration of the pump motor and there was a lot of leftover. No one will see it, hopefully. Most of the employees only use Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
UPDATE: I didn't get fired! But I do have to go back to that order and make another 20 kilos which will be a long day. They were really understanding and forgave me for my mistake. Thank god I didn't lose my job!

This bias toward the negative leads you to pay much more attention to the bad things that happen, making them seem much more important than they really are.

It is thought that the negative bias comes from our ancestors who’d pay attention to bad, dangerous, and negative threats in the world. It was literally a matter of life and death. Those who were more attuned to danger had higher chances of survival.

But that doesn’t mean that we cannot escape the negative bias trap. On the contrary, once you are aware this is how your brain works, you can make a conscious effort to stop it.

For example, a great start is cutting down on negative self-talk, which we all secretly are into. Instead of fixating on your past mistakes, consider what you have learned and ways to apply your newly acquired knowledge. In this way, you approach the same situation from a positive outlook.

For everyone who is saying at least this person isn't allergic to 2. IT IS THE NEGATIVE CONTROL. These tests always have a positive control, histamine, which gives you a baseline size to compare other hives against, and negative, plain saline, to show it's the antigen and not the scratch itself you are reacting to.

Do an ELISA test and check for a wheat sensitivity. This traditional form wont check for it but the ELISA is much more accurate in picking up sensitivities to nontraditional things like foods or pesticides. I did this too and even reacted to the plastic of the syringe, same time monsonto started spraying with Round up. I got better once I went wheat free and never even knew it was that which was making me sick. I never once tested as Celiac btw.

I had this done on my back as an adult and I was allergic to every single thing except for food. I think there were 50 different allergens. I already knew I was really allergic to cats and I would have terrible asthma attacks. Later in life, I rescued some cats and I was still allergic but I used meds to control it. I recently had another allergy test and I am no longer allergic to cats at all. The point of my story is to expose your kids or yourself to pets so you can build up an immunity. It's cheaper than allergy shots and a whole lot more fun!

The first time I had a scratch test, my allergist said that I reacted to every single allergen in the test to the point where he could not distinguish one from the next and my back was one single ginormous welt (except for the control), and the only way he knew it was a test was because the test sites were all marked with a pen. Took shots for over 40 years, and eventually built up some immunity to my environment.

Get her an IgG food panel test . She probably has a lot of sensitivities and they can affect everything from behavior, to cognition, to bodily function. The only difference between an allergy and a sensitivity is the time between exposure and reaction

I have been through this, and the itching made me want to saw off my arm.

I hope the 12-year-old is OK. I was diagnosed as celiac at the age of 52,but I'm doing fine.

Been there, but was "allergic" to the negative control, too. I have Dermatographic urticaria, but am not allergic to anything :-)

Hmmm. I wonder what number 2 was... water? (Haha - read in another comment that it may have been a saline solution control - in other words, yeah - water.)

Been there and done that all my life. They put it all over my back and back of legs/arms. It itches awful. Thankfully, I did outgrew a lot of stuff but some stuff still remains like cats, bluegrass, dust, pollen, molds and certain foods.

And 2 is probably saline used as a control.

I had the test for latex allergy and they wrote the concentrations on surgical tape, I was not allergic to latex but was allergic to the adhesive on the tape :/

That does not necessarily mean the person is allergic, it is dependent on their reaction to the positive (histamine) and negative (saline) controls also. They may have dermographia that leads to hives from just getting poked.

Yikes! Reminds me of a friend stationed in Arkansas who was so allergic to everything, the doc said he was allergic to Arkansas.

Uggggg... I had this done at around 10 or 11. I think they tested 30 different things and I was allergic to 28 of them. It was horrible!

At least there's no reaction to #2, that might be a silver lining.... unless silver is any other number that is.

Hi hear you. I'm allergic to flowers, trees, cleaning supplies, and cat scratches. I have 3 cats and love them dearly.

Seriously, only 4, 12, 10 and 23 might have meaning here, the rest is completely natural to be swollen this tiny bit during allergy test.

Bear42212

Actually no, it's not completely normal for the rest to be swollen a little bit. I have had this test multiple times, and never had a reaction to anything, not even any swelling.

At least he knows. I have some kind if allergy that my blood shows, I can feel taste and smell (not covid) for almost a year. Sometimes my nose are so stuffed that when I try to swallow my saliva I create a vacuum in my mouth. No one knows what's the trigger. Something "in the air". This sh*t sucks

Quick tidbit (from my experience). Allergy testing often has two stages. During the first one they scratch your back with these little things covered in the allergen. It doesn't hurt much, but it will cover your WHOLE back. This is general testing, with food allergies, animals, seasonal factors, etc. Then they do more specific testing of the things you reacted to most in order to gauge the extent of the allergy, and they do this by giving you shots in your arm. That's probably what happened here. I have severe environmental allergies, and I had to get 14 shots. So the fact that this girl had to get 23?? That's not great. To be fair 1 is probably just histamine and 2 is saline, to test baseline, but 21 shot-worthy allergies? Yikes.

Seems like all those are too close together to get an accurate result. I thought that's is why they did this on people's backs in the past...

More likely that they have allergic dermatitis!

If they did, the negative control would give a reaction.
