Is this sentence all right?

Give me some life.

If it is, tell me why. I thought we can use some and any only for plurals.

You can use some\any for uncountable nouns and, sometimes, for singular count nouns. Here. I presume the speaker wants the other person to reduce the stress or pressure. ;-)

That sentence doesn't work very well for me. :wink:
