I never thought I would be dealing with this issue so early.
Here is the deal:
I am a nurse who has to be at work before 7 AM, usually. My coffee intake is usually 2 cups prior to leaving work. That is all the caffiene I drink all day. No sodas, or anything else. It had me awake enough to start the day. Since I started the PIO injections, the second cup of coffee just does not appeal to me. Lately I have only been drinking one cup in the morning. This has been all right, for the most part, because I have been able to sleep in since I have started the PIO. (Thank goodness for vacation and sick days!) But I have to work on Saturday. I know I am going to be tired, and likely irritable.
The Wizard wants me to cut back on caffeine, chocolate, and wine. Sigh. So I have been trying. The chocolate and wine I find fairly easy, for the most part. But I find it is taking a while to accustom myself to only one cup of coffee in the morning. I am really dragging and sleepy. Not to mention the headache. I am trying a cup of tens.ion tamer tea this morning. I may report back and let you know how it worked.
Anyone have any other suggestions about what I can replace my second cup of coffee with to wake me up? As you can see, I am not averse to drinking tea. I am just not sure what types are appropriate.
