On Saturday morning I was in a meeting. I grabbed a cup of coffee - my second for the day. I'm allowed up to two cups, but very rarely have more than one. (Side note - my one is a mug, so it's probably 1 1/2 cups anyway).
As soon as I started drinking the coffee I felt lousy. I've had the feeling before... It's when I forget my pills. I messaged my wife "Can you check to see if I forgot my pills?"
The message back: "Yes. You forgot them this morning, and all day yesterday."
Meeting over. I'm heading home.
I took the pills and rested for a while.
I then completely redesigned my morning process. I basically made it impossible to get my morning coffee without getting my pills.
Sunday evening I ate at my in laws. They had Lee's Famous Recipe leftovers from a party. I know Lee's baked beans are salty, but I had some. Then I had seconds. Plus cole slaw.
After dinner I immediately took a nap.
When I got home I hit the wall around 10:00, and went to bed. It wound up being a great night's sleep.
Bottom line: I got a great reminder just before I take off on a business trip today. Watch the sodium, watch the caffeine and don't forget the pills.
