I want to see how the rest of today goes, but initially, here on day 5, I feel pretty awake and no headache.  Later, if I can, I want to describe how alert I am as compared to withdrawal or caffeinated alertness.

I recently stopped using caffeine about 3 days ago with 5/24/24 being my first caffeine free day.  During that time I have felt constantly sleepy, lethargic, had a constant mild headache and I want to say felt mildly achy.  Today, it feels like I am mostly awake for the first time in three days.  Maybe this time I can kick the caffeine habit.  Maybe.

Update 11:50am: Ugh, still sleeping a lot and still have that mild headache, but it is less than it was.

Done today:

  • Mowed the lawn

Nope, my energy level is still very low.

Audio book: Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court by Mollie Hemingway; editor at the Federalist and Carrie Severino, Judicial Crisis Network and previously a law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

Summary: Of all of the vicious and horrible things that have happened to the president and various other people of the Trump administration, this is easily one of the worst.  Sadly, there are a few other things going on that are arguably worse.  Even worse is that there may well be worse things to come.

This is the inside story of how an innocent man was framed and vilified in the media, at home, and in his confirmation hearing, which most view as an interrogation and sentencing trial for a terrorist.  He was accused of sexual misconduct/ rape by upwards of a dozen women.
