Middle Sets Are Killing Me!!!

How should we play middle sets? I have lost thousands of big blinds in these spots. Dry board, shove in the Flop, I am celebrating already, and then villain shows top set and I throw the computer out of the window again. Tell me a basic strategy for how to approach this. Folding seems too tight, calling is stupid, especially if there are draws, and shoving sucks either.

Here is an example hand from today:

iPoker - €0.04 PL Hi (6 max) - Omaha Hi - 6 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4: http://www.pokertracker.com

UTG: 100.5 BB
MP: 111.75 BB
CO: 213.5 BB
BTN: 93 BB
SB: 157.75 BB
Hero (BB): 162 BB

SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Td 5d Th Ad
fold, MP calls 1 BB, fold, BTN raises to 4 BB, SB calls 3.5 BB, Hero calls 3 BB, MP calls 3 BB

Flop : (16 BB, 4 players) Jd Ts 2c
SB checks, Hero checks, MP checks, BTN bets 4 BB, SB raises to 28 BB, Hero raises to 104 BB, fold, fold, SB raises to 153.75 BB, Hero calls 49.75 BB

Turn : (327.5 BB, 2 players) Qc

River : (327.5 BB, 2 players) 6s

SB shows Jh 3c 9d Jc (Three of a Kind, Jacks)
(Pre 62%, Flop 89%, Turn 90%)

Hero mucks Td 5d Th Ad (Three of a Kind, Tens)
(Pre 38%, Flop 11%, Turn 10%)

SB wins 315 BB
