Glutton for punishment!

I love the smell of coffee... but that shit just doesn't agree with me!

The last 2 mornings I've had to get up at 6.20am to drive Micko into Bananaland for work.  Yesterday he had a work Christmas lunch and was going to hit the beers, then today - we're going up to Byron for an early Christmas with MIL tonight and we live 40 mins in the opposite direction (save him driving back only to turn around re-trace 40 minutes of tyre tracks).

Plus, last night I slept like a bitch!  I'm not sure what was going on, but my mind felt like it was chasing it's tail... round and round and round and round.  I couldn't get the fucking thing to shut up - eff you, overactive brain!

Needless to say..   I'm rooted and I look and feel like any of the cast of 'The Living Dead' trilogy... except not quite as cool!

Anyways... I decide to pick me up I'll grab a coffee on the way home... MISTAKE!

Now I feel just as shitty... eyes bulging out of my head... bags galore and that ewww so greasy feeling. I'm also shaking like a leaf, eyes darting back and forth and have the nervous, anxious feeling in the pit of my stomach... yep!  All caused by, you guessed it, coffee!

Question is... If I know these feelings so well, why do I keep going back for more?

good question!?! why DO you?

maybe get yourself some of those low dose caffiene pills they sell at gas stations for truck drivers. all the caffiene of sudden urges to pee, coffee mouth...or the greasy feeling you described.

I'm such an addict that the shakes are a thing of my very distant past. Ah ha ha
