Yes this will be a rambling post. Please forgive me as I'm multitasking by playing army men and blogging at the same time. Wait, what am I talking about? I do that everyday.
I'm sure your all wondering how I'm fairing on the DP detoxify. Thanks for the concern...ahem :) Late afternoon yesterday was pretty rough. I had to barricade myself in the bedroom, as the headache was just unbearable. Thankfully the hubs ..Clayton (that's going to be hard to get used to) was working from home and was able to help out...in other words call for pizza for dinner. Thanks hon, you are a jewel. Cause somehow I was still answering children's random questions of "Mom, when are we going to eat?" every 5 minutes. (eye roll) Anyways...
I'm usually pretty good most of the morning. It's the late afternoon that kills me. I'm sure it's because my brain is trained like Pavlov's dog, and expects to receive a caffeinated beverage in the afternoon early evening and when it realizes it's not getting what it wants, it throws a little tantrum. I will admit to sneaking pieces of chocolate for a quick fix..it hasn't really worked to much though.
It was so hard not to just break out a can for me, while fixing the hubs his dose to go with the pizza. Cause he's not giving up his drug of choice for anybody. It's even harder to resist when you get your drug of choice for free for an unlimited 8 hours a day 5 days a week. That would be really hard for me too, so I let him slide.
I think by Sunday, Monday I'll be caffeine dependent free.
Gameboy has been really concerned about my "health" and this whole giving up DP thing. He can't understand why I just want to give it up. "but you love it momma!"
I also had to explain to him why I wasn't feeling so well and that caffeine is like a drug and your body becomes dependent on it. He really didn't like me referring to DP as a drug. He is so anti drugs and alcohol (believe me I get my lecture when I just pour one glass) that he didn't like what this "drug" was doing to me. Sweet thing.
I'm still looking forward to my "date" on Saturday. I hope beyond hopes that I don't start up a headache. I probably will take a Tylenol just in case. (You know Tylenol is hopped up on caffeine right?..it seriously is) I've been staying clear as much as possible on it and only taking when absolutely necessary.
That's the 411 on DP detoxify after 48 hours.
