Default Dealing with the downswings...

This is getting pretty rough. Well, at least for me. I've been making money pretty consistently live for the last few months. In the last two weeks, however, playing $1-2/1-3 ring games, lost about a grand. I know, I know, that's only ~5 buyins. The problem is that they've all been in a row. Last seven sessions have been losing, and I can't help but begin to question my game.

I've been playing with the majority of these guys over the past few months and know their play pretty well. I'd really like to blame it on bad luck so I can keep pushing on, however, it seems kind of like a cop out at this point. Not winning a dime, or even breaking even in two weeks is starting to hurt.

I'm on a mini-break right now, and hopefully that will help. However, I'm really wondering if I should shake up my game a little or not. Since I've been winning with it over the past few months, I'd like to think it's working; however, perhaps the regulars have simply caught on? Maybe I'm getting to easy to exploit? It's just getting really hard to judge whether or not I've been getting unlucky or outplayed.

So I guess the point of this post (besides whining ) is to ask: how do you guys deal with your dowswings?
