Stupid! Stupid! Stupid me!

Last night I didn't sleep so well. Not because of dystonia, I just had a bad night.

It happens.

BUT this lack of sleep made me a bit twitchy this morning (the medical term of probably something like 'spasmodic tremorts'.)

So - very stupidly - I had a huge cup of coffee to wake me up.

Stupid me!

Within about 20 minutes I had head and hand tremors, which, as I spent most of the day in a cafe, just made things worse. My balance was bad too. In vain did I try to minimise the effects. I ate a lot hoping to dull the caffeine and also drank a lot of camomile and peppermint tea.

All that did was...well, you can guess.

Now, finally, after 7 hours, the effects seem to have worn off.

But I must never ever forget the triggers!
