This is the flu that never ends. Yes it goes on and on my friends…

I thought I was better. And then I had to lecture yesterday afternoon. I coughed the entire time. One of my students was kind enough to share her cough drops with me. They helped a little. I hope I didn’t spread my germs around too much. This feels like the never-ending flu. It’s just been up and down and back again. I took NyQuil last night to suppress the coughing so I could sleep. It did the trick. But it also kept me in bed until 9:00! So now I feel even more behind than I did yesterday. And poor Jon is just getting sicker every day. I started off terrible and have been slowly getting better. He started off feeling just a little crappy and is slowly working his way up to terrible. Nutso flu.

Caffeine Side Effects

leave a comment »

I mentioned a couple days ago that I’m trying to cut down on my caffeine intake. Well, I had to get up a bit earlier than usual this morning, and I have a long day ahead of me, so I opted for 3 cups of coffee. It’s just been a week or so now that I’ve been having just 1 cup instead of 3. Apparently, that’s enough time for my body to become much more sensitive to the caffeine. I can feel my heart racing, and my palms are sweaty!
