And just what medical condition is coffee prescribed for?

Fatigue? Get some rest.
Tired? Get some rest.
Befuddled? Get some rest.
Cranky? Get up on the other side of the bed AFTER you get some rest.
Cramming for an exam? Quit putting things off until the last minute and instead of partying...get some rest.

And stop whining about the line ahead of you...they are all fatigued, tired, befuddled and cranky too...and some of them have cranky infants that kept them up all night, they do not want to hear your sniveling as they wait for their coffee.

I know coffee is supposed to be a stimulant, but I never have trouble sleeping after a cup. How about you? That's why I don't need decaf.

No, coffee does not keep me awake. In fact I like to have a cup just before I go to bed. I have never tried decaf.

Dave Barry was joking, but I read a recent study that says everyone has that "medical condition." Coffee (not decaffeinated, of course) helps our bodies operate at the optimum. The amount required by each body can vary, but the study suggested that everyone should drink at least 3 cups of coffee each day to be safe.

It doesn't keep me awake either. In fact, I don't think I could sleep without drinking coffee. I've had to abstain for a few days in preparation for medical tests at times, and the lack of coffee in my diet turns me into a miserable wreck.

Zuzu, my doctor told me years ago when my blood pressure started to climb that I should cut my coffee down to 2 cups a day. I said I could not do that. He said try. So I did it.

On my next visit I proudly told him I cut my coffee down to two cups a day and he said, "Good. Now cut it down to one."

Now I hardly ever drink coffee, though I still love it. My husband only wants instant and I don't like that, so I just buy a cup now and then when I'm driving. I drink tea at home but it's just not the same.

Nap, I was sure you were going to say that the coffee cups kept getting bigger. Still a cup but it holds much more. Still a cup! Doctors aren't specific enough with their questions!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

That's funny, Mary! I have another appointment in a couple of weeks and if I can remember, I will tell him that. So that if he offers that advice to someone in the future, he can modify it a little! Hilarious!

So true Mary! I have a little 4 cup drip machine. I pour it into my insulated coffee cup and it holds the whole pot. Am I drinking one cup of coffee or one pot of coffee? On a really cold day I will have a second "cup". Is that 2 cups of coffee or eight???

I do this in the winter when it is cold. During the rest of the year I drink iced tea or water.
