Oh you heavenly devil, caffeine!
Around the time i received my diagnosis of N24, i was told by a ‘sleep specialist’, that i should try drinking caffienated drinks in the morning, to help me wake up.
The only problem was that, upon following this piece of ‘advice’, i found out that i have an allergy to caffeine. I’m okay with small quantities, but..more than a glass of coca-cola, and it’s all over.
It mucks up my tummy and leaves my sleep pattern shot to pieces as my body just can’t process the drug very well, so it takes AGES for it to leave my system.
It’s taken some time for me to figure out that i can’t drink drinks that have high quantities of caffeine in it. And the drinks that have a small amount, i can’t drink after 3pm.
