Does anybody else find that when they drink caffinated drinks they pick up on negativity more easily? I usually have no problems letting negativity pass through me, but when I drink caffeine it's a whole different ball game. I seem to get these awful feelings of dread that I can't shake. I get really bad anxiety and it's a struggle to get it off my mind. I try to avoid caffeine for this very reason, but I work third shift and sometimes the only way to stay awake is a couple cups of coffee. Since I've realized the caffeine is the cause of these feelings it's become a little easier to talk myself down, but I was wondering if this happens to anyone else and if you have any helpful tips?

I would like to try use something other than caffeine to stay awake but I haven't found anything else that works yet. I can't try the binaural beats thing because I can't wear headphones at work. I work in a group home for adults with developmental disabilities and I have to be able to hear them if they get up or need something or worse case scenario fall or choke.

Yes. In fact there is a post about this if you want to read some more responses. Caffeine and alcohol open me up especially if consumed on an empty stomach.

It depends on the source of the caffeine for me. Coffee is a straight upper - it makes me calm and happy. Cola drinks make me nervous, anxious, panicky, and jittery. Chocolate - which has a chemical similar to caffeine - makes me really angry, depressed, and gives me bad dreams. When I eat chocolate I start hitting walls and breaking things and screaming for no reason.

If you can't drink caffeine but need something to give you energy, try some liquid Vitamin C. I take that every day and it energizes me. It usually comes in an orange flavor. Make sure you're drinking enough water, too.
