No longer Caffeine or Chocolate powered

Further to my blog post from the middle of the week and the outcome of my appointment with the Neurologist.

Today is the first day of my medication Topiramate, also it’s the first day of me cutting out Caffeine and chocolate.

I’ve been awake since 05:30 it’s now 18:00 so a little over 12 hours without coffee or chocolate.. this must be a record for me!

I’m excited by the prospect of this challenge. I’ve got some redbush tea and decaf coffee. Hopefully aside from the lessening in pressure around my head this change in my diet will have some positive effects weight loss wise also.

This has started because of  “The Yellow Submarine” book we got them. They like the music and are getting pretty good at singing along to some of the songs. I’m a massive Beatles fan so I’m happy with this development.
