Why is poker so hard?

Why is this game so hard? Any pros want to comment on this? How do you do it for a living? Massive respect to all the full-time pros. This is the hardest game ever! 

I'm starting to experience stress while I play and stress due to some massive swings. This didn't happen to me much at the lower stakes, but at the midstakes my edge is less, and I'm having a lot more "variance" and bad play. Any tips for dealing with the emotions of winning $2,000 in 1 hour, and losing it in the next? Just to win another $2.5k in 20 minutes the next morning. Is this even healthy? I am using bankroll management 60+ BI for my highest stake, but I am still getting stressed!
