Ouch!

Damn it.

One of these days I will remember how much this hurts and avoid it in the future. I always think it'll end up differently but its always the same thing.

Fuck caffeine. I hate it and I hate going off of it. Hell, thanks to my funky brain chemistry, I don't even get the happy awake feeling from it. It usually puts me to sleep.

I'd been bad the last couple of months (with school and all) and I got back into the habit of drinking a lot of soda. Yesterday I decided to stop. Today my head feels like it's going to explode.

This is why I hate being hooked on anything, even caffeine.

Ow ow ow ow. I have a pretty good bit of pain tolerance, but I loathe those internal pains that don't correspond to something tangible. A bruise or scrape from mountain biking, a cut from working on the cars, even a sprain from playing sports, all of those are just peachy, but a headache, or stomach ache etc... totally leaves me a mess.

Anyhow, I took some pain killers so I should be able to get to sleep in a little bit.

Heading your way

Sorry about your headaches! but on the happy news front, I'm coming to El Paso at the end of June to go to my mom's reunion. I'll be there around June 24-26. Hope you'll be there so I can see you!

Re: Heading your way

Oh cool, that's awesome!

I'll definitely be around that weekend (it's Land of the Dead weekend ;). Definitely keep me posted on what your plans are.
Yep, I know of which caffeine withdrawl headaches you speak of. I have had them in the past, and they are not very pleasant. I still drink my morning coffee, but I very seldom drink soda anymore. It was tough giving up my "4-5 Mt Dews" a day habit. Keep the Advil bottle handy for a while.
Psh... I was cruising up to a 3 liter bottle a day habit.

Fortunatley MD and ice tea are my only caffeine sources and I only ever have ice tea when I go out to eat on the weekends so once I get all the MD out of my system I should be fine.

I think they're mostly gone already actually.
GIVE IN!!! Give in to it... you cannot fight the ever-powerful caffeine!!! If you try, it will hunt you down and force itself into your veins--I KNOW! It happened to me!!! damn diet coke...

But seriously, since I've been knocked up, I've tried to give it up, and I've done well w/ soda and coffee, but I CANNOT and WILL NOT give up my iced tea... I'm from the south, it would be sacreligious...

So give in, Vic... after all, it's better than heroin... or is it? Mwhahaha!
if not, it's certainly cheaper and no annoying sickly gaunt look
Right, like I could ever achieve the sickly gaunt look.

I'd have to lose like half my body weight.... and live somewhere other than El Paso.
1/2? :-P
Ooooh Noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

I will not give in. Will not. Nope nope nope

Well except for the ice tea I had with dinner tonight. Forunately that's only a few glasses per meal a couple of times a week so it's pretty minimal. I actually already feel better now that I'm back to just water, juice, and milk (and it's really mostly water).
