My elbow hurt when I was walking around and stuff. Still did my workouts, I figured the pain would just fade away.
I still do not going around punking people and staring people down. I must not be that tough

Re: How Tough are You?

Years ago I drank thirty six beers and a mickey of Jack Daniels, then proceeded to challenge everyone at the party to an ab. posing competition. Now that's tough !

Ah, the idiocy of youth .

Re: How Tough are You?

I've been stabbed(as a civilian), shot twice(security guard at a night club while on AD not duty related), abundance of overuse injuries from my time in the 82nd AD, and in a# of physical confrontations in which I was almost always either outnumbered or was fighting someone much older or more experienced than me, near death from a motorcycle accident, deployed 4 times and all that might entail but despite all these experiences I would never have the confidence to post in a thread of which the title was "How Tough Are You" beginning with...I used to work for a software company!! That may be a little insensitive but I'm not known for my sensitivity and personally I don't give a f***!!

Re: How Tough are You?

Many years ago, I got my girlfriend pregnant. Some time later she called me from the hospital to tell me that she miscarried. After I got there, the doctors treating her said they needed the fetal material. They all looked at me.

I went to her apartment and recovered the remains of our child. On the way back to the hospital I saw her Dad (all 6'7" of him) walking to her apartment for a surprise visit (he lived 150 miles away). I stopped and picked him up, told him what was going on, and took him with me to the hospital. I gave the remains to the doctor. I sat down for a while after that.

Okay. i see how my statement came off as offensive. all i meant was that "shell shock" was not in the DSM IV(or whatever that psych book is called) and there were not established ways to treat it. only recently has PTSD became a buzz word and gotten media attention to the point where someone realized it should be treated. i am NOT trying to take anything away from anyone diagnosed with PTSD as they are true american heroes.
Just trying to set the record straight

Re: How Tough are You?

I went to the movies once and sat through the whole thing without popcorn or sour patch kids.

Re: How Tough are You?

Stood up to the big bad bully in high school.

Wrestled my senior year in HS.

2nd degree black belt in TKD.

Got lifeguard certified after a couple months of swimming experience.

2 classes away from my associates degree (the hardest thing of all)

I was so dehydrated once when I was sick I had to get 15 bags of IV fluid injected into me.

Dealing with *********s......

I could go on.....

Re: How Tough are You?

A woman I knew in the past was sexually assaulted in the past and I convinced her to go to the police.

Hearing her story is one of the hardest things I have ever done.

That is why I only look as crossfit as workouts and not very hard at all.

Yeah, top this.

I took my wife to see "Gone with the Wind" in the theatre. I sat through the whole thing (not easy, but with my attention span and ADD. )

When they got to the "Frankly my dear I don't give a damn" line I stood up and started to walk out, not realizing it was not the end of the movie.
