I don't drink wine or coffee, but I NEED my mug full of Pepsi One when I get home from work. I don't know if it's psychological or not, but I kick off my shoes, turn on my salt lamp, have a big mug full of Pepsi One,sit with Brandi (my dog) on the couch, and all is right with the world again. The exhaustion fades slowly, and after an hour or so, I'm able to tackle making dinner. The same thing happens when I'm not feeling well - with a glass of Pepsi One the exhaustion lessens and I feel much better. I'd like to say I've given up sweets and everything else, but umm, not quite yet. Thinking about it though!
Lupus, you have no chance!
Love and hugs,
