insult or compliment?

I just heard this week that there is a new rumor going around where I work that I’m taking steroids. At first, I thought it was sort of offensive and degrading considering the hard work I put into my diet and training, but later I thought it was a pretty nice compliment. Hey, if someone is that jealous of the way I look, then I should be happy, right? I wish I could have the same confidence in my looks as whoever started the rumor, though. I wouldn’t let it bother me too much, but I work at the UN and rumors of illegal activity aren’t easy to deal with in such a political environment. I guess it shoots down my ideas of actually finding some of the good stuff and giving it a try. I don’t know why I posted this, but I was just here and thought I’d see if many others have been falsely accused as well

Well, I’d take it as a compliment, but be ready to defend yourself should the rumors become allegations. Not that I’d ever be accused of such things…

People started talkin, I had a friends say that he heard that steroids make you loose alot of weight fast and that he thinks I was takin them.
