Today, I woke up super late. I still felt tired. To be honest, all I wanted to do was call into work and sleep, but I knew I couldn't. So, sadly, I drove myself to Starbucks and ordered plain black coffee, the only coffee I can force myself to drink, and still I am reminded of why I hate coffee so much!
1. It gives me a headacheGiphy
i know a lot of people who drink coffee because they have a headache. Even many headache medications contain coffee, but every single time I drink coffee I get the worse migraines! Everyone tells me that this symptom will stop if I keep drinking coffee, but why would i keep drinking something that causes me pain to stop the pain it causes me? Does not make any sense.
2. It makes me shakeGiphy
This is the symptom I hate most about coffee! As soon as I drink coffee, I get the worse tremors. It gets to the point where I can't even hold my pencil in class because I'm shaking! And how could you even sit in lecture if your whole body is shaking uncontrollably?!
3. It gives me stomach achesGiphy
I think everyone feels these effects of coffee. We don't even need to go into this...
4. It gives me heart palpitationsGiphy
As someone who has anxiety, coffee is basically the death of me. When I first drink coffee, it is always great. I have energy, motivation, and life is good. Give it an hour...and I feel like I am a constant state of anxiety, which induces my anxiety! I find it crazy when people can drink a grande coffee from Starbucks - how do you not die?
5. The crash at the end sucksGiphy
All these symptoms combined end in the dreaded caffeine crash. I get exhausted, the headaches gets worse. The end of the day, I had a horrible day, and now I'm dealing with more symptoms that again can only be corrected by drinking more Coffee. I might as well never drink coffee in the first place.
