OK, OK...I took on a little too much at once. I had to go back to my Diet Dew, the headaches were driving me batshit, and trying to deal with them and the first few days of a new diet were maddening. Couldn't concentrate to play my game, couldn't stay awake, no energy to do what i need to do...hell, i have a page of the Sketchbook Conspiracy that was due yesterday, and I have barely started.

At least I have something with no calories, so I don't feel bad.

Talked to dravengodvamp for an hour tonight, and it's funny: for all that I dislike most people, there's a short list of people that I can talk to for-fucking-ever and not bat an eyelash, and it just re-invigorates me. There's a reason I call these people my Family, instead of my blood relations.

Yes, he's doing very well, actually. Making good money and getting his life together, adding various certifications so he's got all kinds of alphabet soup after his name, and has a long term plan underway that will, hopefully, get him back up here in a few years. The littl'un is also doing well, though is back with her mom for the moment.

I'm tentatively planning on him being back up here at some point this summer, but I dunno if he'll have his gear with him, we'll see. Eventually, of course, he'll move back.

Getting off of caffeine is teh suck. I didn't have the headaches (yes, I consider myself lucky on that count), but everything else you mentioned is spot on. Drinking lots of water may help with the headaches. Analgesics are fair, too. Except Excedrin. That has caffeine in it.

I swear it took me weeks. Nothing is going to make your brain work properly while withdrawing from caffeine.

Caffeine withdrawal plus a new diet? Either is hard enough without compounding things. That's a lesson learned from experience.

Yeah, the water usually helps, but not with these. Nothing did. Ah well, like I say, i don't feel bad as it's zero-calorie. And if that keeps me feeling better, I'm more likely to stick to my diet. ;)
