So this morning was supposed to be my first morning without any Mt. Dew. Ha.
I did good for the morning. I had bought some cheapo caffeine free soda in an attempt to fake out my system and make it think it was getting some caffeine. I knew that I would still be getting tons of sugar, and hoped that would offset some of the withdrawal. Ha.
I woke from my afternoon nap (there are some perks to working overnights) with a pounding headache and about --->this<--- much patience. After barking at the kids a few times and nearly hyperventilating, I broke out my emergency stash of flat Mt Dew from the fridge. Nasty, but it has caffeine, and beggars can't be choosers.
I am not giving up, though. I made it until 3pm without breaking down today. If I can manage to make it until 3:15pm tomorrow, and 3:30pm the day after that, I will be making progress in a big way. At least, for me it will be progress.
I also figure I have an ear infection. I thought at first that my ear was just plugged, but 3 days of using that ear wax removal crap (I have had to do this many times in the past) has provided no relief. So I am figuring that I will have to go into the doc and find out if I am gonna need antibiotics or something. It is just too annoying to feel like I have an ear full of water. Besides, I am getting a little dizzy off and on, and that is more upsetting than anything. Can't read or do needlepoint when you are dizzy.
I suppose that is about all, folks!
