Sunday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
How many caffeinated beverages do you drink in a day?

I drink a total of about ten caffeinated drinks per day! Before five o'clock, all of the beverages that I drink contain caffeine.

Suzane, you are awesome. As for me I'll just say that I drink waaaay too much caffeine. But it doesn't up my pain level at all. It just keeps my heart beating :) Lee

Maybe a soda once a week. Sometimes longer. I love them but they don't love me. They make me belch too much.
I don't drink coffee but maybe once a month or longer. I don't drink it unless I need a jolt from having little or no sleep the previous night.

1-2 coffee breakfast, usually hot decaf tea rest of day. I prefer the taste of mineral water if I have to drink water, can't get it without fizz here, so I have to leave it in a glass a few hours. I like wine, and I make it but can't tolerate sulfites - just get to taste.

I drink around 2-3 cups of coffee from when I wake up until about 11 am. What's sad is it actually makes my pain worse (the toothy, nervy pain gets aggravated). But I'm THAT addicted to it! I can't not have my coffee. Maybe once a week, I'll go to the machine and grab a Mr. Pibb Extra.
