    If you are talking about your state of mind, you can be in the pits of despair.

    ¨Everything I do seems to go wrong, I´m in the pits of despair.¨

    I like down in the dumps, I am convinced it´s the absolute antonym of the top of the world.

    Been down so long it looks like up.
    Down so low you have to take your sock off to wave hello to me.

    that reminds me of that song on the old TV show called "HeeHaw"

    "Doom, despair and agony on me,
    Deep dark depression, excessive misery,
    If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all,
    Doom, despair and agony on me..."

    I loved that show

    I mentally did the groans as I read those lyrics! My dad watched Hee Haw every week!
