GO! Get Hyper!!

Now, I think that caffeine is the most socially acceptable drug/substance in the world and isn’t illegal.  I know, I can’t go without it…but I can stop anytime.  I have friends who under no circumstance will they ever be allowed to have coffee as they get so hyper.  I’ve come about 3 dials down from Jack in this clip. 

Once, I was so unaware of the amount of caffeine that I had consumed and boy was that a big mistake.  I had my usual amount of coffee and as a treat pick up a latte on my way to work.  Then, they did a coffee run, so I requested my usual latte.  Well, by 9:30 am, I was driving everyone crazy including my self.  My secretary asked, “what the h*** is wrong with you today?”  She was laughing at me when I told her what I had done.

Share a time that you became really hyper by something  (legal).

    Hi CC

    I was driving along yesterday and a interview was on the radio between the presenter and a doctor – the discussion was about self-diagnosis (that’s another post for another day).

    People were calling or emailing in and proclaiming that their doctors had got it wrong so many times that they turned to Google etc to self-diagnose themselves.

    All well and good some would say, others would be horrified.

    One chap phoned in and his story went like this. One morning he’d woken up with an awful headache. Pain killers did nothing and after a week he was beside himself. He went online and there were various horrible diagnosis presented.

    So he went to the doctors – explained the symptoms and what he thought it was. The doctor asked a few questions – including “any recent changes?”.

    Why yes said the man… I gave up tea and coffee last week (not this coffee here folks!!).

    DOh! The chap had been consuming so much, he was just in withdrawal symptoms. No brain tumors, no open brain surgery required – just plenty of water.

    The danger of self-diagnosis.

    Keep well CC and watch that caffeine folks.

  2. I actually gave up coffee when I was pregnant with my first child, but I cannot give up tea, which I drink in copious amounts (and which I am told has almost as much caffeine as coffee although I don’t believe it).

    I rarely feel hyper although I must admit that any attempt to separate me from the teapot (especially first thing after I have arisen) is not a very good idea!

    Hi Angela – my addiction to Peppermint Tea is well documented in forums here at GSTC so I won’t bore you with the gory details.

    Suffice to say, it’s been a year now since I ‘discovered’ normal tea was causing me trouble….

    I do miss a good cuppa though….

  4. If I ever had to give up tea may as well shoot me!
