My story

[p]15/05/20:- started listening at 7.11am. Im now on my fourth repetition of Crazy Frog. Yes, its beginning to grate on me already....[/p][p]7.32am:- this is going to be a very long day. [/p][p]7.47am:- the only way to describe this is it is like having a drill being rhythmically inserted into my head[/p][p]08.18:- now listened to it 20 times..[/p][p]09.13:- 2 hours in. Its actually beginning to hurt now[/p][p]10.18: I am starting to go crazy. Ding ding. [/p][p]11:11:- I fear that I may have inadvertently discovered a new interrogation technique. I would confess to anything to make this stop.[/p][p]11:57:- dancing to the Crazy Frog. Bam Bam[/p][p]12:44:- in a meeting, but Crazy Frog playing quietly in the background[/p][p]12:48:- if this had been a marathon I would have finished by now[/p][p]13:14:- for lunch today I am mostly having paracetamol [/p][p]14:23:- this was a terrible idea. If anyone thinks of doing this then my advice is simple .... "don't!"[/p][p]14:46:- only have to listen to this song 12 more times. Bing bing[/p][p]15:09:- this is my last time listening to it. Might as well dance for this one...[/p][p][br][/p][p]15:11:- going for a lie down in a darkened room. In silence[/p][p][br][/p][p]I will listen to the most annoying song (as decided but you) for 8 hours straight! All for a good cause.[/p][p]the most popular options so far are Barbie girl; the Crazy frog song; the birdie song and agadoo.[/p][p]I developed ME in 2017. I have improved immeasurably since then, but have been inspired to help others with this debilitating condition by joining the ME Trust as a trustee. This fantastic little charity offers holistic and personalised care to those with ME. It has many wonderful success stories and I am keen to support them as the number of referrals will undoubtedly increase following the Covid19 crisis (viral conditions can often lead to developing ME symptoms). [/p][p]To support the trust I am offering to listen to the most annoying song (as voted on by you) for a solid 8 hours straight! If I am still sane at the end then any money raised will go straight to the trust to help those struggling with their health.[/p][p]You can read a little bit more about my experience here: [url=http://www.disabledpolice.info/life-in-the-slow-lane/?doing_wp_cron=1588223354.1637039184570312500000]http://www.disabledpolice.info/life-in-the-slow-lane/?doing_wp_cron=1588223354.1637039184570312500000[/url][/p]
