> I am ok-ish. I'm getting married in 8 days

What a joy it was to read this. Congratulations and mazel tov!

I hope it is a great day for you. I was ill when I got married. I think the released adrenalin and caffeine helped.

How does caffeine affect you?

I guess your wedding day is not the best day to experiment with caffeine.

I have learned that I can get a significant energy boost from caffeine, especially if I otherwise abstain. Also, it takes a relatively small amount to give me energy. Too much has the opposite effect on me. It makes me sluggish and fatigued. Caffeine does more for my psychomotor retardation than Dexedrine or Adderal. Of course, the right antidepressant treatment will wipe it out entirely.

Caffeine helped get me through life. I would drive 2 hours each day to spend a half-hour studying affective disorders at a medical school library. Even then, I still had to skim written material in order to get through it due to impaired concentration. I had to go 5 days a week to accomplish anything worthwhile. I would wait until I got to the library to take the caffeine. It would give me between 30 - 45 minutes of improved concentration before pooping-out on me.

I used sleep-deprivation from time to time if I wanted to read things word-for-word instead of skimming. Unfortunately, I really paid for the few hours of improved concentration. I would feel worse once I allowed myself to sleep.

Anyway, I sincerely wish you and your bride a wonderful life together.
