    because i'm an idiot.

    And because my whole, "Diversification is for Suckers!" attitude had produced awesome results thus far. I learned my lesson. I extra learned my lesson. with cherries on top.

    You haven't lost anything unless you sold. In a year or two, your shares could recover. My portfolio paper losses in the last 12 months are staggering, but I haven't lost a dime yet in real money. Same with my real estate . . . went down over 20%. Fortunately, I do not need that money to live. I will simply weather the storm and enjoy the ride back up in a year or two. Those who panic are the ones who will suffer.
