Helpful Hints-The Jazzed Edition

If you have a headache in the morning, and it doesn't get better... don't take two Excedrin (which contain caffeine) with a 16 oz coffee.... most especially if you are sensitive to caffeine.

You will be shaking like a leaf and talking like a speed freak for the rest of the day.

And although you are already quite the speedy typer, your shaking hands will produce more typos than actual words.

Just saying.

This hint brought to you today by Excedrin Migraine (the wonder drug) and Scooters unbelievably good cafe au lait.

Oh man... I love Excedrin Migraine, and I am VERY sensitive to coffee. I can't drink a coke past like 3:00 or else I lay in bed with my heart racing. I'm a weanie.

I hate when I get overcaffeinated! It makes me feel really anxious. I am anxious enough already, thank you very much!

Unrelated - I'll be in town Dec 31st through Jan 4th if you're free at some point.

@jen I just usually get a stomach ache from too much caffeine, but it doesn't affect my sleep that much. But then again, I can pretty much sleep whenever, wherever. ;-)

@R agreed. I don't need more anxiety. and YES YES YES! I'll be free. I just sent you an email, too.

Thanks for the tip - I didn't know there was caffeine in there! Did it at least cure the headache?!?

@Rachel Wow. I can't even think about drinking a soda until at least noon. I'm impressed!

@tammara Yes, Excedrin Migraine takes care of impending migraines. Once they've already started, though, I definitely need the bigger stuff.
