AM for me - I am an early morning person. I go for my daily walk at 6 AM. Definitely NOT a night owl and am in bed by 10 PM.

You?

That would do me in. I do have serious insomnia so I rarely sleep well but I still make myself get up every day at the same time. I just love mornings - they are new and full of promise. And cooler! Oh, in winter when it is -40F I do NOT bundle up for my walks until about noon but I still get up early. Now I've got to put that horrific wintery thought out of my mind...blech. :angry: It's coming up in practically a couple of days.

I do not do mornings. Like, as in preferably I don't get up before noon. I spent about 2 years working first shift at a gas station full time and it took copious amounts of coffee to get me to be that wonderful perky person all my regulars loved. I can function if I need to after a while, but this while 7 am thing I've been doing? Yeah, it's even too early for the kid I watch so when he passes back out so do I! I'm more of a 2-4 am bedtime kind of girl.

I have been a night person all my life. I remember when I was a little kid before I ever even started school, hearing Mom and Dad turn off the 11 o'clok news and come to bed.

I've always had trouble getting to sleep at night, but in the daytime I can close my eyes and be asleep within a minute.

Now that I own a business, I will never be able to sleep in the daytime again. :( So as a result, I am tired ALL the time. I get up early, but only because most nights I am so wiped out I'm in bed by 8 or 8:30. So I get up around 5, but usually take a nap at 6:30. Then I get up permanently around 8, jump in the shower, and come open the store.

Life? WHAT life? :lol:

That's so funny Bart. I'm the same way during the day. If it's before about 4 in the afternoon if my head gets anywhere near anything it can touch I'll be out like a light in an instant. How do people like us end up in this "day life" crap? :lol: I feel like a zombie when I have to get up before noon. At least you're doing something amazing though, music makes the world go round.

    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I had a negative biopsy and was still diagnosed with Celiac. My GI ran a bunch of tests looking for the cause of my 15+ years of diarrhea and the only thing that came back positive was the entire Celiac panel. All very high. So he performed an endoscopy with biopsy. The biopsy was negative. So he ordered a genetic test. When that came back as "high risk" he decided a trial gluten free diet was in order. After 8 weeks my symptoms resolved and my antibodies were back to normal. Since then, follow up testing had shown I have osteoporosis. I am a 40 year old male.  So yes, you can definitely still have it and have significant damage with a negative biopsy. 
    • Pork Fried Rice  (Gluten Free, Dairy Free) Prep time: About 15 minutes Cook time: About 10 minutes Makes: 3-4 servings   Ingredients: 4 Pork Chops,  1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4-1/2 teaspoons black pepper 1/4-1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional) 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil 1/2 large or 1 small onion 2 large carrots 2 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 green cabbage, very finely sliced 1-2 heads of broccoli, roasted and salted(optional) 2-3 eggs 2-3 cups cooked white rice  2 Tablespoons gluten-free Tamari or Coconut Aminos Sriracha (optional)   Instructions: 1.

    • Annual celiac antibody testing is, in my opinion (and based on what celiac researchers have published), is critical, especially for a 12 year old.  Life is going to get harder for her.  Peer pressure is huge (I have a 15 year old daughter), and remaining diet compliant can be tough.   In Dr. Fasano's, Gluten Freedom, he discusses a young patient who became ill in high school after being gluten free for years.  His parents were perplexed.  Dr. Fasano took the young man aside and he confessed that while on a date, he didn't want to bring up his celiac disease.  So, he ate pizza.  He was too embarrassed to tell his parents.   My daughter does not have celiac disease.  She was first tested two years ago.  Since she is symptom free, is not anemic and her other lab work is fine, we'll wait to test her in another year.  It all depends on the patient, but every few years, testing is recommended for all undiagnosed first-degree relatives.   It certainly sounds like your younger children should be screened.   I wish you both well!      
    • Perhaps you should consider asking for a GI referral.  You might just skip the blood tests and go directly to an endoscopy/biopsies while you are still consuming gluten.  It is the "gold" standard for a celiac diagnosis anyway!   Here's the deal with going gluten free.  You can do it.  It costs nothing, but you must give it six months or longer.  You'd need to think like a celiac, but it can be done!  I'll tell you my tale.  My hubby went gluten-free 15 years ago per the very poor advice of his GP/PCP and my allergist.  After a year of mistakes and learning, he got well.  It worked!  Thirteen years later, I was formally diagnosed.  (It was a shock as I was only anemic at the time.)  Hubby would be the first to say that I have had way more support from family, friends and medical.  I must say, it's nice to see those lab results.  It really helped me adhere to the diet in the beginning too.   So, you know your medical situation.  You must do what's best for you!   I hope you feel better soon!
