Anxiety and decaffeinated coffee
The last three years have been a battle against the night rushes of anxiety and insomnia. During the day it's not too bad but as soon as I lay down, no matter how tired I am, anxiety rushes through me and I can't sleep.
I take a cocktail of various OTC drugs with atavan, which often does not work, but I am hesitant to increase the dose for fear of a never-ending dose increase.
I have been drinking decaf for years, and only drink 1 - 2 cups of decaf a day.
I just read that decaf may have just enough caffeine to disturb some people sensitive to caffeine. Well, that report sure disturbed me! I eat a very limited diet, I have few food pleasures except the Wholefoods blend for which I shell out $12.99 a pound. (I don't spring for lunch or dinner but I will for good coffee!)
For a few days this week I did not have any decaf, and I could net really tell a difference. (Big sigh of relief!) Has anyone else expeienced a problem with decaf and anxiety?
