I recall events in life that present a common thread.  Knowing how a dog can smell a wound on me...  I have wandered if perhaps when I have been psychologically wounded; if others can sense this weakend state and use it as an opportunity to pile on.   I do a real good job of masking issues, yet, I still get piled on.   I think there is some similarity to football, piling on, when the guy is down, the opponent still makes the hit.   My business presents so many opportunistic moments for me to be easily overloaded.  Maybe, when it rain, it pours; might be more accurite.
