Has your retirement account taken a hit like mine?

I just checked my retirement account. Last year, I lost about 7% of the total after ten years of contributions. Is this happening to everybody?

I am not ranty, I'm not looking for a pity party. I just want to know what other people's experiences have been and what they're doing about it, what kind of attitude they have taken. I'm American, 48, male, with a government job that isn't going anywhere anytime soon. There's social security and another government fund available when I retire, so I'm not panicking, just curious. Tell me what's going on with you if you're in this situation. Thanks.
