Journal #315

It has gotten pretty bad.

This morning when I woke up, my eyes could barely open and while eating breakfast, I can’t help but to doze off.

Half of the time at work, my brain isn’t even functioning properly. I lost track of conversations pretty fast. I’m constantly tired, sleepy and irritable. I had to force myself to even get something done.

About getting things done, I only managed to fix a couple of bugs, did some testing, and prepare a deployable package for tomorrow. These things could have finish in less than an hour but I spread it out the whole day.

I guess at the end of the day, it’s my fault.

But I do question the situation. I don’t know if I’m truly exhausted or have a poor night sleep for the past few days. All I know is I stopped my intake of coffee since last week. However, it doesn’t mean that I have stop accumulating rewards points from Starbucks. I have drinking other kind of drinks.

You know what’s funny? I was fine on Saturday doing spring cleaning, aching all over on Sunday and when it come to Monday and Tuesday, I’m completely exhausted.

If this continues for another few more days, I will probably go see a doctor to find out if I have other underlying medical conditions that I don’t know about. I was thinking that my excessive intake of caffeine was masking something happening to my body. Now that I have stop taking caffeine, symptoms are showing up.

On the other hand, I have been reading online articles suggesting that it’s my genes. I’m addicted to caffeine and not drinking means I’m suffering from withdrawal symptoms all the time. But since these are online articles without references to scientific studies, I will take those with a pinch of salt.

I will rest early tonight and see if I will feel better tomorrow.
