Who doesn't like to wake up in the morning and brew up a cup of Joe? Even if you aren't doing the brewing, your craving for its bold flavor and energy boost doesn't change. Drinking coffee is one of those things that is just a part of life for a majority of people across the U.S. In fact, statisticbrain.com estimates that approximately 100 million Americans drink coffee every day.

I am so sick and not sleeping

I've been very sick with many diseases and disorders for quite awhile. I am so sick and not sleeping, evidently due to this hyperthyroidism whose cause hasn't been established. I'm intelligent, but I sound like I'm not when I lack sleep.

Psoriasis
Psoriatic Arthritis
Hepatitis C
Cirrhosis
Glaucoma
Hyperthyrodism (Uptake tests tomorrow 3/30)
Supra Ventricular Tachycardia (SVT)

The hyperthyroidism is in the process of being diagnosed. I took my radioiodine pill today and tomorrow I go for a number of tests. They call it an uptake test, but maybe there are more than...
