Today decided to decrease the number of chemicals thrashing through my system so I just had caffeine (double tall coffee) and sugar (pre-sweetened cereal) for breakfast. Result: continued twitchiness and an (increasingly annoying) under eye muscle tic. But also an absent headache until after lunch, at which point it reared its ugly face. And I returned to the miracle which is Sudafed.

Beginning to have a major jones for a sale. Again. Been over a month since my last one. Still conspicuously under thirty pieces out to market. Need to stick more irons in the fire.
