Ramadan is Coming and Caffeine Withdrawal is Scarier Than the Coronavirus Right Now

While the whole world is panicking about the rapidly spreading coronavirus, I, on the other hand, feel those long fasting hours coming closer and closer by the minute and it’s scarier than any virus. The headache, dizziness, snapping in meetings and psychotic traffic tantrums are just a few of the caffeine withdrawal symptoms we’re expecting this year.
