Health Note - Coffee

I treat myself to a cup of coffee about once a month. I have known for a long time that 3-5 days after I treat myself to that single 8oz cup, I will have a minor breakout (acne). It was always a tradeoff. But recently I have noticed something else: 3-5 days later I will also have a "dead day," a day where I get nothing done and just lay around and stare at the wall feeling useless and often depressed. I never made the connection before but now it is pretty clear that coffee is a "rob Peter to pay Paul" situation--the energy I use up when I have my cup of coffee on Saturday comes directly out of my Wednesday energy stores....
