Day 2....Withdrawal Blues

I do not remember being THIS sick when I gave up coffee when I was pregnant with Inara.  Maybe I just assumed all of my throwing up was morning sickness.  I did not realize that caffeine withdrawals could be this wretched.  Today I am throwing up, have the shakes, I feel excessively hot and my head feels like my brain is trying to explode. 

Honestly, I probably wouldn't be going down this road of self torture if it hadn't been for my guides nagging me to quit coffee.  What it has shown me is just how very real a chemical dependency I have developed.  I will be so glad when the pain stops.
