Places you go to feel better
#21
I have a bridge.
Well, okay, it's not MY bridge, but when I walk home from work, the 2 hours or so it takes me, there's a place I stop by to reflect on life, overlooking the old railroad, with a nice view of the city, especially in winter when there are no leafs on trees. First stopped there about 30 years ago and loved the view, still go there now when I'm feeling down. It helps me to remember that there's still so much out there...

I used to really enjoy driving around with a cup of coffee. But recently I have been suffering caffeine sensitivity and that makes it so I can't really have a steaming cup of joe with me anymore. There are alternatives such as decaf.. but it isn't the same.

I'm curious; caffeine sensitivity?
In the last few years I've upped my coffee consumption more than before. At about the same time, I started having some real intense "allergic reactions"; I'll have something that looks like hives suddenly start and as soon as I pop a Reactine, it stops.
Are those the symptoms of caffeine sensitivity? The internet is surprisingly sparse on the subject.

The only real way to find out is to cut out the caffeine and see if it gets better.

I can't have caffeine anymore either, but it's likely for a different reason.

No. Sounds like an allergy.

Caffeine sensitivity or intolerance is having the caffeine have a greater effect. So if when you were twenty it took 4 cups to make you shake now it just takes one.  

It is apparently common as you get older. But I have sound some information that it is related to not having sufficient glucose stores.

Oh, I see. Okay, definately nothing to do with me lol. I can drink a cup and sleep 10 minutes later, so I guess it's unrelated ;-)
Thank you both for the info, ladies.

I always find the cinema quite soothing. Sure, the buying a ticket alone part is pretty crappy. Once you're settled and the film starts though, I can just forget for a little. It's nice.

I used to but the cost is insane and the local cinema changed to one of those luxury ones with like 10 seats in the theater. What I used to like was the way the dark space enveloped me. Now there are so many people around it can't. Also, what is with the price tag? I went to see Wonder Woman and it was $15.00 for the ticket and $15.00 for the popcorn. OMG!

I'm not quite sure how $ relate to £ but I agree it it far too expensive to go often! I haven't seen Wonder Woman yet. Is it worth watching?
The game in my town is to sneak food in without them knowing... once I saw a family with a full McDonald's meal!
