This week hasn't been the easiest of weeks (ask anyone who lives with me!) You see, I decided I needed a little personal rehab from my addiction to...caffeine. Oh, the shame! My caffeine was delivered daily through a steady stream of Diet Dr. Pepper or Diet Coke, preferably in a Route 44 cup from Sonic...oh, Sonic, how I love thee....whoops that is a slippery slope. I am not a coffee drinker but somehow morhped into someone was desperately hopped up on caffeine from sodas. I mean, like I was very serious about my soda! First thing in the morning I would stumble to the fridge for that first hit before stopping by the medicine cabinet for my 1st round of headache meds...it was a vicious cycle. So last week, after realizing just how many OTC pain meds I was taking, I decided it was probably related to my massive intake of soda/caffeine and some kind of rebound on the headache (and the OTC meds.) Fast forward to this week, I have had no caffeine (soda or other form) since Sunday night. Also, I have NO OTC meds for headaches!!! Headaches, I have had...but, of course, they were worse the first 2 or 3 days off the beautiful amber liquid. Here I am, entering day 5...and no one has died...yet...just call me Dr. Drew!
