I’m not going to pretend it’s been a fun week. I gave up coffee (and Coke Zero) after Monday, which brought forth the most head-crushing of headaches for two-and-a-half days. I’ve done the ‘caffeine cold turkey’ numerous times in the past, but I don’t recall it ever being quite this bad. Nor do I now recall the reason for deciding to go without one of my favourite things in the whole wide world either.
Then I picked up a lurgy on Thursday, which shifted the focus from caffeine withdrawal to a different sort of discomfort. Should I have felt relieved? I don’t know. Suffice to say, Friday was spent mostly bed-ridden.
As for today, Vicks VapoRub. Thank you.
