One thing has become apparent to me, coffee is a part of my diabetes problem as it is an insulin inhibitor.
Years ago, I was an addict-I mean seriously addicted-I didn't function until my third cup and woe betide if you upset before then; it was nothing for me to go through 5 pots a day (15 cups).
The irony is for years I decried decaf, only to find out I was enjoying decaf myself-I assumed the higher the rating, the higher the caffeine kick-I enjoyed the high numbers for their taste and not the caffeine kick and still do.
I cannot blame coffee for my migraines-drinking a lot didn't help, as it constricts the veins-as I was hit in the face with a cricket when I was 11 and didn't drink coffee until about I was 19, when a USAAF detachment was at RAF Lossiemouth.
Another cause may have been that while I was at Lossiemouth, one sunny day I was riding to get the films from the aircraft and got hit with a late burst of Autumn sunlight off the concrete pan; from the air the painted aircraft pans looked green, but at ground level they were concrete grey and very reflective.
