One of the shittiest things about my body is that it's extremely susceptible to caffeine. On the one hand, I can drink a Coke or whatever to easily wake up. On the other hand, when I'm working and overdo caffeine even a little, I get at an energy level where every individual atom in my body vibrates at high enough speeds to open portals to other dimensions.
Caffeine, if I don't watch it, makes me irritable, unfocused and uncomfortably energetic. And therefore relatively unproductive. Lame.
As a result, I envy any person who can just drink a coffee (or a strong tea, whatever) every time they feel tired and need a boost. I can do such a thing maybe once per day. Any more and I'll be useless.
Which means that if I'm drowsy and I've had my can of Coke or two that day, tough shit, I'm gonna be drowsy if I want to preserve a semblance of good physical well-being.
@oddtail Do you also eat? Coffee can't bring out energy that isn't there. It certainly doesn't give you any itself, that's a misconception.
@claude Yeah, whenever I drink any caffeeine at all, I make sure to eat healthy, full meals.
