I just found out that it would take over 200 cans of Diet Coke to kill me. That is good information to know. I'll just keep drinking up because I have not come close to that number (yet).
I was 98% caffeine free before Baby Girl arrived. Now, I need it to function. One day I'll be caffeine free again, but not while I am getting up at 5AM. If it were not for my dear friend, caffeine, I would have most definitely taken at nap at 10AM yesterday (it did not save me from a nap at 3PM). These days my drug of choice is Diet Coke. I have all but abandoned my old friend of many years, Diet Dr. Pepper (especially the caffeine free version). I never make coffee at home, however, I jump at any opportunity to get a free cup elsewhere (Thank you, Trader Joes!). The best thing is unsweet tea with Sweet-n-Low. Ahhhh. I tend to make decaf at home and drink large quantities of the regular when I go out to eat. I should mention that I am awake a lot of nights with my mind racing because I overdid it on tea. It is a vicious cycle.
More to know than you wanted and I might suggest you get a cup of your own coffee to wake up after reading this. If you are still there, take the test above and make sure you haven't overdone it with your lattes.
