At first, the caffeine gives me a rush,
Iím hyper, Iím happy, Iím hip

Then starts the downfall,
What a long way to fall, to tumble, to plunge

It ends and begins there
My sanity on the cusp, the brink, the edge

My head starts to ache
Itís pounding, itís throbbing, itís pulsing

My body canít take it
Trembling, shaking, convulsing

It wonít be long now tilí I find release
In darkness, in shadow, in death

I've been trying to change my avatar for four years...

The following comments are for "Hypoglycemia"
by frenchie

i.d. with this
Well-described - I know how it feels. Until diagnosed, didn't know how it all tied together: skipped meals, caffeine and sugar, headaches in the afternoons, headaches on weekends.

There is also stevia, a good sugar replacement.

I hope you are talking to a dietitian.

Good thing these Google ads already come with helpful resources. For the first time I find myself clicking them.

My diet
Since I was diagnosed, my doctor has put me on a pretty strict diet. I'm not supposed to have caffeine anymore, but sometimes I slip, and regret it. I am supposed to eat more protein, and avoid sugar and white flour. I don't drink, but if I did I definitely wouldn't be allowed to have alcohol anymore, which is about the worst thing for a hypoglycemic. I don't smoke either, but tobacco is also a no-no. A really great website is, which will take you to the Hypoglycemia Support Foundation. There's lots of other info out there, good luck.

That site is a bit commercial. I thought there would be a lively forum. In short, hypoglycemia is a confusing condition. There is no well-organized, medically supervised body and a site devoted to that.

And that is what happened to my friend, when we thought he had epilepsy, he was tested and found to have symptoms close to that and to some other brain anomalies, spent all of his medical insurance on Cat scans, etc, when doctor accidentally gets a hint from glucose-coupled hemoglobin.

He thought he had something wrong with his head, and now on a simple hypo diet, and I am convincing him to write about the 15 years of not knowing and thinking of the worst.
