Since you were willing to re-deposit, your BR wasn't $25. Don't confuse your BR with the amount you have on a site. Your BR is all the money you allocate to poker, no matter where / how it's split up. If I set aside $200 for poker and deposit $25, leaving $175 in my bank and/or my pocket, my BR is $200, not $25.
Since the OP was willing to re-deposit, he wasn't playing with a $25 BR. He lost because of insufficient skill, Depositing the entire amount he lost at one time would have made no difference assuming he played the same games. So poor BRM wasn't to blame, not even partially.
