This seems to vary according to who you ask, and how much risk you are comfortable with. The suggested range of your maximum buy in ranges from 5% of your BR (if you don't mind taking a higher risk) to 2.5% of your BR (if you are very risk averse). For your $500 BR this would work out to $12.5 - $25 buy in for an S+G. In view of the tone of your OP, I would suggest that you stick to the lower end of this range until you have built your confidence back up.
As said before, I rather suspect that your current situation is down to variance, but being on a fairly lean run myself at present, I can empathize with your frustration. Stick with it, be patient, have confidence (all easier said than done) and good luck.
