Big mistake

My daughter has just left the country travelling for a year I desperately wanted to drive her the 4 hours to the airport so I did I split the journey in two stopping off half way both directions drank two energy drinks and 4 cups of coffee in 24 hours I made it there and back but have suffered from heart pulpertations headaches and an inability to sleep for the last 48 hours now I remember why caffeine and fibro don't mix glad I got her there but wish I didn't suffer so badly with fatigue as I know feel really rubbish as well as missing my darling daughter

you will miss her naturally, but have you set up skype? she will text or email I'm sure, so you can look forward to seeing messages and photo's :)

well done for all that driving!

as for the coffee and energy drinks , some energy drinks have caffeine in them! might explain your palpitations :)

I hope you feel better soon.

Wow, that is a lot of caffiene! You must have an iron stomach.

I think Skype is a perfect way to keep in touch. Doesn't cost. You can chat by text. You can converse. You can add the webcam. (though you won't find me on the cam; cameras don't like me, and vice versa)

You can even set up a group so more than one person can hook up and talk. I keep in touch with friends in the Phillipines, the UK, and here in the US a couple thousand miles away. Sometimes we all talk. Can get a little disorderly, but that's part of the fun!

Give yourself a good rest and some pampering. Get well soon.


Well done in getting your daughter off on her travels. think of all the e mails you'll get, and send her with all the family news in, keep off the coffee 😀


I have a similar problem and only drink decaffeinated tea and coffee. One problem was when recently in hospital they did not seem to know that it was available so I was restricted to water!


What planet was that hospital on?




my hospital has both types :)

Next time you need their services, fall ill here :P
