my fondness for folgers is gone

Terrifying new discovery: Folger's coffee and I do not do well together anymore. At. All.

Okay, you wouldn't think this could be new, but since that entire gall bladder, surgery, oh god my life incident, just knowing it exists would make me queasy, since before the great removal drinking it was a major source of excruciating pain and hey, I carry over the association. But today, I thought, I shall not fear the Folgers. Which obviously was stupid.

Except now it makes me: a.) jumpy, b.) twitchy, c.) killing of the attention span (and it's not like I have a lot of that to go around). Which is weird; it can't be the caffeine, I probably carry a blood baseline higher than the average cup, so it must be that it's evil. I mean, I should have suspected as much, but there you go.

I also suspect that I am destressing from dental with child--but mostly, it's Folgers' evil

That means, serendipitiously, I must go to Target and get more pod-things for my Keuric. It's hard, yo, but what can you do? It's not like I can give up coffee. The Nantucket blend is very nice.

As is the Paul Newman Special Blend. :D

Bonus - it is almost always on sale!

extra-dark French roast, Turkish grind, permanent filter so I can enjoy teh sludge.

dude: Folgers is roasted out of the crap they sweep up from teh warehouse floor. it is evil and soulless and will rot your brain. come back to teh real coffee!!

giver yer body more time, took me over a year for my metabolism to settle down, and I feel way better now than I did the first few postop months... meantime, ye've a solid medical reason to only drink the good stuff. and if it turns out you really can't handle as much caffeine, try Swiss Water Process, 'tis the only decaf not made with solvents like ethylene chloride, and most places will happily make up a mix of any proportion of caffeine/decaf ye want, for a wee bit extra.
