One of the unfortunate effects of a week of nausea = a flatlined caffeine tolerance.

I'm a pot-a-day girl. Hush. Fibro is a fatigue condition, and the Lyrica... let's just say that when people found out how much I was on, they were amazed that I was awake. Like, ever. So. Pot of coffee. Few cups in the morning, few in the afternoon, maybe one at night.

But this week... so nauseated that I could barely eat or drink at all, for swathes of the week. So coffee consumption went down to a cup or two a day.

So today, when I hit cup 3....

Full-on shaky freakout. Like I'd been mainlining espresso.


Am mostly back to normal now. But. I do not like this. Because, you see, coffee is not medicinal for me. Coffee is one the few pleasures I'm consistently able to indulge in. I like coffee. The smell, the taste...

I do not want to cut back on coffee.


And decaf is not coffee. So don't even.
