Baby YawnUpon direction of my neurologist, I have taken caffeine out of my diet completely.  All I can tell you that it sucks.  Sucks suck sucks.  I’m getting by with drinking caffeine-free tea, a lot more water, and once in a while a flavored La Croix.  I’ve also had to drink sugared soda when visiting restaurants because Sprite or 7-up is the only beverage available without caffeine.  No buzz, but lots o’ calories!

I’m tolerating the new medication well.  From my previous experience, I know not to expect anything until at least about a month into it.  I’ve had some horrible headaches this week but that’s most likely due to the drop in caffeine.  My eyes have been dry and bleary again lately; I’m hoping it’s not related to the “Topamax Eyes” (increased ocular pressure) that I had before.  We shall see how it pans out.

I’m looking forward to the Thanksgiving weekend.  I need the two days off to recuperate and catch up on homework!  Tazz has a really good chance at two places he interviewed at.  One already called around for reference checks and had him take an online personality test.  We’re hoping that they don’t wait too long to at least give some sort of feedback.  Talk about a headache!

You cut out the caffeine cold-turkey. Ew. I would not have recommended that.
Good luck!
