When I have tried to skip caffeine in the past, I always got a horrible headache. I knew it had to be caffeine withdrawal, but ask many medical professionals, and they will tell you that caffeine has limited effects on the body and can't give withdrawal symptoms.

Well, hello there, mental health experts disagree.

What do you think? Should it be considered a 'mental illness' when it debilitates your ability to work?

That's what I do too, Michelle. But, do you think the metal health professionals are grasping at straws with some of their diagnosis?
