The meaning of bombarded is to be attacked by something and have something thrown at you constantly.

Bombarded refers to attacking a person or place continuously with bombs, shells, or other missiles.

The saying of being bombarded can also mean that you're being attacked with too much paperwork or too much work that keeps piling on you.

Or you are being bombarded with a lot of stress which is piling up.

Or you are being bombarded with a huge stack of bills that you're having trouble paying.

Although bombarded refers to the attacks in the war or just being attacked in general a lot of people use the term being bombarded to mean they are being overwhelmed with something.

Being bombarded can also mean to assail someone persistently, as with questions, criticisms, or information.
