What You Didn't See When You Called Me Weak

I heard you when you called me weak and a wimp.  I get it.  If I were in your shoes, I'd probably think I was a wimp too.

But since I'm not in your shoes and you're not in mine, I'm going to make a deal with you.

If you want to call me a wimp, you have my permission to do so, as long as you do a few things for me first.

1. Fast for 24 hours.

2. Stay awake for 24 hours.

3. Every time you stand up, spin around really fast 5 times in a row.

4. Throw yourself down the stairs 5 times in a row.

5. Run 10 miles.

6. Continue to try to live your normal life.

That's how I function all the time.  Imagine you have the flu, but you can't lay in bed and recover.  You have to get up and keep doing what you always do. Your body aches, you're nauseous, you have a headache, it's hard to walk, you're dizzy, and you are sooo tired, but you have to get up and go to work anyways. Now imagine feeling like that everyday for the rest of your life.
