Back in January when I was talking about how my teeth
are shifting due to my night time teeth grinding,
Laurie said she found that giving up caffeine helped
her stop that irritating involuntary habit.
Well, you all know how much I love my coffee!
I've drank a 12 cup pot all by myself since the triplets were born!
And yes, you would have, too, if you had 4 babies under 2 years old!
I mean, it could have been vodka, right? haha.
I used to take a caffeine supplement on top of that but quit that a
couple of years ago. I wasn't sure I could go cold turkey, so I decided
to cut the caffeine by half and see if that might help.
I've never have trouble sleeping...I sleep just fine! I just grind my
teeth while I sleep and I don't want to ruin my teeth since I just
had them all beautifully straightened 2 years ago.
Even with permanent retainers, I've been making them move!
Stress is a powerful thing, let me tell you!
So, I bought 2 big bags of coffee beans at Sam's Club.
One regular and one decaf. I mixed them up in equal amounts
and for the last week, I still have my pot of coffee but
with half the caffeine I used to.
The first two day I thought I was going to die.
haha...I was SO tired...like a zombie.
So, I added a green tea supplement in the afternoon
and seem to be adjusting pretty well!
I can't tell that it's helping my teeth yet.
But hopefully it is!
I still think it's stress, but this can't hurt, I suppose.
I had an orthodontist appointment today and the
retainer he has me wearing seems to be doing it's thing.
I'm not enjoying how tight he adjusted it, but
what price beauty, right?
