a bad beginning of a year for me

Hi everyone!

Supposing the year has barely begun and many bad things have happened to me. I crashed my car, broke my arm, my computer is bugged, I have a sciatic nerve condition and other things, and this is just January 20! In Brazil I would say, "Oh my God, what a bad year beginning for me this is!" This definitely does not sound good in English. What would a native in an English-speaking country say something to convey the message that the beginning of the year has been bad to them?

Thank you so much!

    This year got off to a bad start.
    I'm having a bad year so far.
    What a bad start this year has had!
    Can we start over? I don't like 2020 so far...
