dumbass: me

Why I thought it would be a good idea to have a cup of coffee around 9pm is beyond me.

Hello it’s after 2am!!

This is the second time in a week that I’ve had a caffinated beverage. I should know by now that I’m sensitive to caffeine, especially now that I rarely have it anymore. I realised tonight after the fact that I’m officially a week pre-menstrual, and I ALWAYS crave caffeine during the PMS stage.

The after-effects of ingesting caffeine for me are:

  • Insomnia
  • Core body temp drops – it’s 70F (21C) in the house and I’m shivering cold, wearing a bathrobe, slippers and a hat.
  • Muscle tightening – especially in my neck/shoulders/back. The last thing I need is for my back to go out again.
  • Jaw clenching
  • Breast tenderness
  • Lack of concentration

Thankfully, I don’t have to work in the morning, as the company I’m temping for celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day (which reminds me, I should obtain audio of his famous speech and re-read his and his wife’s life stories).

I tried taking calcium vitamins but I only got mildly tired and the body is still tense as hell. I’ve now taken a muscle relaxer. This means I’ve had a stimulant and a relaxant in the same evening. Uppers and downers! The Elvis Diet! Woohoo!

I’d like to begin reading Quantum Psychology, which I picked up at the Library on Saturday. However, I’m not sure I’ll retain anything I read due to current lack of concentration.

*sigh* what a dumbass! Go me!
