GuyRule #287.0: Taking your own medicine
When illness occurs, most guys just continue plowing through everyday work as if nothing is bothering them. However, on rare occasions, it is possible to feel so bad that you actually stay at home. Keeping with the Lore of Guydom, most Guys, even in this sad state, will still refuse any and all requests from their women to take medicine or go see a doctor. If taking this action, one rule *must* be followed... you can *never* bitch or moan about your state of health, how sore you are, or ask to turn the TV volume down because your head hurts so bad after you have turned down such medical attention. Bite the bullet/thermometer and bear it.
