Caffeine moleculeSo, following a total meltdown after my stint at the local sci-fi con, I decided it was time to finally give up the caffeine. It screws with my migraines, and it makes travel a real bear, since going more than 12 hours without it would spike a headache–which can get really inconvenient in foreign airports and on camping trips.

So, after not having gone more than a day without caffeine since I was in grade school, I gave it up on Monday. Today is the first day I haven’t had a headache, but I feel like I’m running at half-speed, and my brain is wrapped in cotton. Hopefully, it will get better from here. If anybody has any advice on dealing with caffeine withdrawal, I’d love to hear it.
