Coffee Giving You Jitters or Worse? It Can Affect Your Interaction With Others

Real Estate Agent with Integrity Real Estate Services 116 SE AVE N, Idabel, OK 74745 141871

Sometimes caffeine can be detrimental to us, affecting our ability to speak clearly even! 

If you love Coffee but it's not something you should be having,

Try Okra Coffee or Okrafee!

From The Sooner Homestead:


I LOVE COFFEE! I really do. Ask anyone that knows me…I’d rather have a good strong black cup of coffee over just about anything else that you could or would offer me.

BUT time has brought some health issues that coffee does not co-exist very well with; or at least to the degree that I have habitually consumed it.

Hello Judi - while I occasionally have a cup or a portion of one of coffee, I don't think of myself as a coffee addict.  Maybe that's just denial.  I admit I love the aroma of it more than anything else.  Your post makes me think of the saying everything in moderation including moderation.

Michael,  that aroma gets me every morning.  I remember when it was packaged in metal cans and when you punctured the top with that can opener, a little "swoosh" would come out that smelled so good!

Judi so nice to see you posting again, it has been a while, missed you on the platform, now with that said, I used to drink Two Mugs of Coffee before... I have cut back to one mug... and I do not talk to anyone until I finished it:)))Endre

Andre, I have changed much of my focus during the last few years and do not blog as much as I did, here or anywhere.  Good to see you so active in the rain!  That morning mug and morning quietness can't be beat!

Good morning Judi - I really need my cup of coffee before I can start the morning.

I understand!  I was that way for more years than I want to admit to...I've gotten better about starting without it but usually have to have a cup before the day is too far along or mix that little bit in with my Okrafee!

Interesting. I would never have thought of using okra seeds to make coffee!

I would not have either but once I found the article and did a search, there are some really interesting articles about using it during the civil war!

Good morning Judi,

Glad to see a post from you this morning. We've missed you in the Rain! I like Endre Barath, Jr. use to drink 2 cups but now have one in the morning. I most likely will not talk to anyone until I'm finished! LOL!

That first morning cup deserves a little respect, doesn't it??  Sometimes, I'm just wading in molasses until I get a little java!

Hi Judi... I am a self-professed coffeeholic! Love, love, love my coffee and fortunately it doesn't give me any jitters or keep me from sleeping.

You are fortunate!  I existed on coffee for a long time... but due to LPR and Essential Tremors, I've had to cut WAY back... there are days though when I've just got to have some dark brew!

Judi it is tough when the things we enjoy most in our lives start to create health issues.

YES It IS!!!!  Sometimes I get really stubborn about it and think I can do as I've always done and the outcome will be what it's always been but NOT SO!  Aging changes things, unfortunately!

1~Judi Barrett - Judi, it is wonderful to see you back on ActiveRain. You were missed!

I had to cut back on coffee too. Okra seeds? I never heard of it before. If I get an opportunity, I will try it. Thanks for the tip. Stay health and well.

Hi Judi! Just checking in and found this post - how interesting! I am a coffeeaholic and can't imagine life without it. However, I may give the okra-coffee a try before my Hawaiian brew starts impacting my health. Thank you for sharing!

Hope you're doing well! 😘

Hi Judi,


I love coffee but I've been doing a bit of a coffee reset lately. Tapering off so when I drink it again I get the full effect.

The comments on here are great. I've never heard of okra coffee!

Any other suggestions for great coffee?
