    It means that you must attempt to be patient with me. It's usually said by someone who knows that their current actions may annoy or bore the person they are speaking to.

    The sentence should be: You must try to put up with me.

    You will hear "try and" often, but it is not correct. That construction should be "try + infinitive".
