Last Friday I decided to get off caffein after a few dozen years being on it. Cold turkey. Saturday was fine. By Sunday afternoon it hit me like a ton of bricks. Muscle aches, major headaches, flue-like symptoms, lethargy, irritability, fatigue, tiredness, feeling foggy, no energy, runny nose/congestion, some nausea, etc.
Looked up the symptoms for caffein withdrawal and I hit all of them. It can last two to nine days for that to subside. Apparently I should have reduced my intake g•r•a•d•u•a•l•l•y.
Deep inside I kind of knew that was probably the right path. But thought it couldn’t be *that* bad just quitting.
It's now occurring to me that *some* of those symptoms are shared with being infected by Covid. Need to get tested tomorrow.
Sadly, we haven't been 2nd boosted yet. For no good reason other than laziness. Shaking my head on that.
