well i tried most of the suggestions and heres wut i found:
tea: the aroma of tea did nothing to wake me up. i didnt like the taste as much as coffee(i got a multipack of several flavors) and it didnt wake me up as good. But on the positive side it was gentle on my stomach.
coffee for sensitive stomachs: it was actually good, if not better than regular coffee. the first 2 days i drank it i was fine but by the third i was running to the toilet and acctually throwing up. . .
redbull: before i went to bed i put a redbull next to my bed. i like the taste of redbull. . .but it is by no means a breakfast drink! but it acctually helped me wake up and my stomach is fine.
so thats what ive tried and found so far. . .i think im sticking w/the redbull for now... although redbull is expensive (14 bucks for a twelve pack) and im hoping i can have a cup of coffee maybe once a week w/out it affesting my stomach
