For quite a while now, we have been brewing Roy’s Kona Blend Coffee and enjoying the aroma and flavor of it. Lately, however, I have been experiencing some jitteriness and inability to remain asleep through the night. Could it be due to the caffeine? I do drink 4-5 cups every morning. Well, yesterday, I switched to Roy’s Decaf. Unfortunately, it simply does not smell or taste as good as the regular Roy’s coffee. Can anybody recommend a flavorful decaffeinated coffee?
As you know, we love to entertain. We like to treat out of town guests to a meal either at home or at a nice restaurant, and even enjoy showing them one or two sights after the meal, before taking them back to their hotel. However, David balks at having friends sleep in our home, as he treasures his privacy. In 1998, two friends of mine from Canada stayed for 4 nights in our home, and David felt extremely ill at ease and uncomfortable. Since then, we have had no sleep overs. When we travel, he prefers to stay in a hotel, and he expects our friends to do the same. In every other way, he is generous to a fault.
If I could sum up in one word what David is like, I would have to say he is DEPENDABLE. My kids and I trust him with our lives. Just the other night, I was experiencing a burning sensation and pain in my chest. I took my blood pressure and it was 153/100, rather high. Fearing it could develop into a heart attack, I asked my husband to sit next to me on the sofa instead of heading to the gym. We watched some late night shows on TV and then, when the pain in my chest had subsided, we went to bed. I appreciated his presence and support, and I like to think we will always be there for each other.
David’s urologist called yesterday to tell him to stop all testosterone replacement therapy, because his blood test shows he could have a heart attack or stroke from it. Despite his Low-T, David will simply have to do without testosterone replacement. Sad. He had hoped it would boost his energy.
We all experience peaks and valleys in life. How we manage them is what makes us unique. Good luck and God bless us all!
P.S. To respond to your comments, I’ll say this: Yes, I do take Omeprazole for GERD (acid reflux) and Losartan for High Blood Pressure every morning.
