Underdog Day: Have You Ever Felt Like an Underdog?

Technically speaking, an underdog is a competitor who is thought to have little chance of winning — whether in sports, politics, or life in general. But when an underdog triumphs over disadvantages to succeed, the victory is that much sweeter. Since today is underdog day, I'm curious if you've ever come across a situation in life where you felt like all the odds were against you — whether it was at your job, in school, or in your relationships. And feel free to share how you may have overcome the odds.

I live with chronic pain 24/7 and if I don't stay mentally discipline to maintain a mind over matter mentality it robs me of any pleasure in life. So I'd say that's pretty underdogish.

Of course. As for me, my situation involved a worker's compensation claim. The story is too long to get into here, but let's just say the situation was that of David vs. Goliath (and I was David). In the end, everything worked out in my favor, but it was a long, uphill battle. The system of worker's compensation is adversarial, and the odds are AGAINST the employee, in my opinion.
