As you all know from this morning’s blog entry, I endeavored to cut my caffeine today, as per my nutritionist’s advice. So, I made my morning brew with half caf / half decaf.
Lord help me.
It tasted rather good – normal even – and I felt fine – good even – for the morning. But, that was short-lived.
By mid-afternoon, I felt like a steamroller had run me over – several times. I have been sluggish and sleepy all afternoon long, not able to stop yawning. I feel like I’m moving in slow-motion, not even able to type properly and – this is the truth – I actually slurred my speech a couple of times. Shameful! Horrible! I’m determined to do this but – WOW! – I miss my caffeine!
All I want, dear readers, is to function my life’s tasks without any addiction but still to have the sweet, warm, safe feeling of caffeine streaming through my veins. Is that really too much to ask? Inasmuch as I can think right now, I would say not.
But, thinking is not my forte at this moment in time. My pulsing noggin needs to be on a pillow right now, with visions of caffeine dancing through it.
So, to Blanket Bay I go. Good night dear readers. When you say your prayers tonight, please also ask that I get through this time of trial without my head exploding. My head and I would appreciate it.
