Me: "Ugh, why do I have such a headache?"


Me: "Oh, right. I forgot that I'm a drug addict now and need to do drugs every morning or I feel like garbage." ☕

@andybaio I went through the same thing this morning. My partner's not home, should I still make coffee? Ah yes, my head will feel like it's in a vise tomorrow unless I do this.

@annika @andybaio I admit this with a good amount of shame. I had to buy little caffeine treats because the last time I was really sick I couldn’t stand the thought of coffee and the ensuing headache kept me in bed longer than the actual illness.

Recently gave up caffeine for a month to see how it would go. Takes about a week of reducing amounts to make it tolerable.
