Worst: my birth (fortunately I have no recollections thereof).
Best: still waiting (lest I be branded a pessimist).

Same for me,

are you an antinatalist?

Best moment: Getting married
Worst moment: When my wife decided she was leaving me. That worst moment lasted years for me, while the wedding day and honeymoon was just 10 days.

This moment right now is bad since some people don't understand what the word "moment" means, and give entire life seasons as a moment- UGH!

Seriously though:

Best moment: no mom could choose between the birth of two angels straight from God, so tie between 6/20/98 at 2:30 pm and 4/19/03 at 10:29am

Worst moment: wasn't one moment exactly, but more like an hour or so from 1-2 pm on 5/12/17, when cops were looking for the 6/20/03 daughter mentioned above to prevent her from killing herself and no one knew where she was, only that she was likely gone. By the grace of God, she is ok, but I will never ever be the same again- sort of PTSD type symptoms for the 2 years since

best day - Finding out I passed my radiology certification exam with flying colors, when I was sure I had failed it! The reward for all the hard work and suffering I had to go thru for it, and during the training - a divorce, my ex exploiting my daughter, my mom almost dying of depression/starvation. I already had a job lined up. Now, I could buy a house of my own to raise my daughter in!

worst day - 4 years later when my mom died of pancreatic cancer. She hid the fact that she had it. She didn't want chemotherapy. She wanted to die because her husband was abusive and she saw no way out of the situation.

Best: Can't decide - marriage or a day on the racetrack with an BMW M3, I was equally euphoric.

Worst: Cannot decide on a specific event. I had extremely painful breakups but never lost anyone to death.

Best-Holding my son for the first time. I have 3 kids, but he was my first, and that moment changed me.

Worst-Skipping my 8th grade graduation party. When I tell myself the story of my social ills, my running from things I want to run toward, it always starts there.

Best: The evening my future husband proposed.

Worst: The day I realized I had rapidly progressive deafness in not just one but both ears and still no one knew what was going on. This is the only day of my life that I had what I recognize in retrospect was a nervous breakdown.

Best: the day I got my absolute dream job last year. That was even better than marriage. That feeling of pride, of achievement, is indescribable.
Worst: still waiting to happen.
