In cleaning out the pantry this afternoon I came across some Starbucks Via iced coffee packets and decided it sounded good, so at about 5:00 I made myself an iced coffee. I knew it was a bad idea, but didn’t think I’d drink very much of it. Now it’s 11:30 and I feel like I’m going to jump out of my skin. When I drink coffee it’s always decaf because it hits me pretty hard, so this feeling is driving me nuts! I’m just venting because I know I won’t be sleeping for a while…ugh.

Yeah, I can’t drink coffee because I get so sick to my stomach and so ….. buzzed. It gets to the point of being unproductive. It does not do good things for me.
I also am an insomniac, so I relate very well to the not sleeping. It sucks.

I hope it left your system and you got some sleep! I can’t live without coffee! I am not even remotely functional without it in the morning and I can have it in the evening and fall asleep no problem.

@sparkle: Same with me. I actually rarely drank coffee before FI moved in. Now I am a full on addict! I tried to go without yesterday and had a POUNDING headache by noon.

I ended up going to bed at 12:30 and falling asleep around 2:00. Ugh! Regular coffee just doesn’t work for me. Decaf will keep me up if I drink it later than about 3:00, but at least it doesn’t give me that awful feeling inside. Never again!

I drink lattes for that very reason. I feel less of a buzz with them!
