Well, the dr has decided to change my blood pressure meds. I started on the new one last Wednesday and guess what. One of the side effects is insomnia. Now I’ve never suffered from insomnia before. Yes, I’ve gone a night or two when I was working through issues and didn’t sleep well. But insomnia? Not me. Well, between Wed night and Monday morning I don’t think I even got a total of 8 hours of sleep. Yesterday was so hard at work – I just wasn’t functional. The brain was in a total fog.
Last night I went to Starbucks and ordered my usual (triple shot cappuccino, dry). The barista asked if I’d ever had a macchiato and when I answered no he fixed me one “one the house”. He said he thought I’d like it as much as the cappuccino since I always ordered it “dry” and that it’d be cheaper. So I enjoyed my beverages and decided he was right. I went back in to make sure I’d be able to order what he fixed me. He’d fixed me a triple shot macchiato.
So, last night before bed I consumed SIX shots of espresso (and not de-caff either)!! Guess what. I slept like a baby and awoke refreshed this morning.
