You know that point, when everything that has gone wrong - will go wrong, and Murphy's Law decides to throw another piece of crappolla into the mix . . .
Mentally, you were already broken down, and the additional wrench doesn't really help, it starts to break you down physically.
Now there are a couple of things you can do:
1) Throw in the towel and call it quits, live to fight another day.
2) Think about it till it makes your mind numb, cause that often works. . . . please read the heavy sarcasm
3) Talk about it with someone to alleviate your fears, and potentially come to a root cause that needs to be addressed.
4) Fight through it - I mean if Rudy could fight through being small in stature, constantly belittled and essentially a tackle dummy for 3 years, you can make it through a small funk.
Or, and potentially my favorite one,
5) This is meant to be fun, not serious, fun. Last I checked, we aren't going to the CrossFit Games, those athletes have already been chosen. Yes, there is the fact that we are meant to work hard, and take our intensity to higher levels - but this is meant to be fun - not stress us out. A missed lift in the Olympics sticks with the athlete for a lifetime, not the lift he missed in practice.
This is familiar territory for myself. I think I may have taken every single one of these paths as I continue my pursuit to a higher level of athleticism in myself. I have gone on tangents in Olympic lifting, in gymnastics, in Parkour, and in CrossFit in general. I spent months following CrossFit Football, tried the Russian Squat Program, the Wendler Program, and even a two week stint in a Oly lifting program, all while trying to continue some semblance of CrossFit.
But it all came back to doing something that while I was working out, I could have a smile on my face, or make a quick quip while I worked out next to someone (even though half the time no one is there, I still try and make a joke, hey atleast I smile/laugh).
Teamwork doesn't just include a helping hand when you are down on the ground trying to get up, it isn't just a few words of encouragement to get you through a workout, it's inside and outside the box. It is a person to talk to and a person to learn from.
Above all else, be patient with everything - even though we achieve one thing - whatever it may be - doesn't grant us the opportunity to get everything we wanted. As one goal is achieved another should always rise in it's place - it's just one way of how we keep moving.

FYI - It is extremely difficult to function in a state of chaos . . .
