Had an interesting chance to see how my body would react to no cafeene for the last ten days. I have been dealing with a wicked nasty sinus and double ear infection that really has taken the wind out of my sails. However now with antibiotics in my system (thank god) i am on my way to recovery. I am normally superman but this year i have had this, a staff infection, and another sinus infection lay me low. Getting old sucks. LOL LOL LOL

SO ive had no caffeene for almost ten days. No hypomanias. just calm and mellow. Now i have to see if this stays the same once i start to feel better and get my energy back. Then we can see if the hypomanias come back without the use of caffeene.

Actually the break from both the hyper side and depressed side of my disorder has been great. As much as i love my hypomanias the time off away from it being replaced with nothing but calm and level has been a true gift in the midst of being sick as a dog. THat and i lost 10 lbs also. LOL LOL LOL

Thanks tortoise, i am still cafeene free. I think, even though i was sick, i finally caught up on all the sleep i have been missing. SO that has allowed my body in some senses to reset and feel more at peace.

I am going to try and stay away from the cafeene for as long as i can to see if i can live without it. Today i have no desire for it so lets see what tommrrow brings.
