caffeine withdrawal

was it worth it? I don't know. It certainly felt good at the time.

I'm still paying for it, though. still paying. can't concentrate for shit. antiproductive, nearly. I have to keep making sure I'm not starting something I'm going to have to fix later.

Now I'm curious as to what this is all about.

Honestly not much.

I was trying to get some work done on a partially self-set deadline. Stayed up all night on 6 cups of coffee (I don't do caffeine very often; 8 was quite powerful; hell, the first one was quite powerful and it just snowballed from there).

Didn't make the deadline, really, and stayed up the next night as well... and kept working. and eventually passed out (I'd lightened up on the caffeine load, doing only 6 total -- if I'd really wanted to keep going I should have been brewing at LEAST for the worry of a crash. but I was too tired to think that far through).

The last few days I've been paying caffeine withdrawal. I might be back to "normal" today. I hope so. It's unpleasant to be chemically unpleasant.

All in all, I think it was worth it for the minor breakthroughs I made in projects. And now that I think I'm better again, it's time to get back to work on them. Yesterday it was all I could do to stare at the screen and try to focus my eyes and my mind together.
