Carrick says it's been "horrible".
"It's horrible," he told the Daily Mail. "You go home after a bad result and you suffer more than most because it's our responsibility if we have not performed and got the result.
"You take it to the next game. You constantly ask questions of yourself. You have to face the public on the school run or taking the kids somewhere.
"It's not pleasant, but if you want to take good times you have to be prepared for the bad times.
"You never forget those. They're the things that drive you on - being relegated with West Ham, playing in the Championship.
"I constantly remind myself of that. It's not something I have forgotten. I don't take winning things for granted. You can't do that. That made me even stronger, going through that. I still remember the feeling, without a doubt.
"There are certain times here, through the years, when we have had bad results and we have had two results on the spin - the roof caves in and everything is wrong.
"We have gone on to achieve things but for that week it is disastrous, horrible. This year it has been over a longer period, but hopefully we can get back to winning more often."
