Hey, how many of you are night owls? I'm curious how many celiacs have sleep issues.

Collagenous colitis is very nocturnal. It loves to wake me around 2 or 3 a.m., I have to go around 5 or 6 times, have cramps and abdominal pain for awhile then it settles down around 5 or 6 a.m. (just in time for the kids to get up! <_< )

That is why so many of my posts are through the night.......

Pre-gluten free I had a lot of sleep problems but that is rare now.

Well, I COULD sleep like a baby all night, if I wasn't at my best after 8:00 PM normally. Plus, I can't function (as in nervous breakdown) unless I get enough privacy and quiet time every day. Unfortunately, with a teenager (who loves to blast loud music and is a hyper kid, who never stops talking) and a 20-year-old (who isn't much better), and a husband who likes to work from home at least twice a week, the only time I get the peace I need is during the night. Plus, I tend to forget about time and space when doing research on the Internet (or playing games), or reading, and when I look at the clock, it could 'suddenly' be 4:00 AM! :o I don't necessarily mean to go to bed that 'late' (early), but it happens more often than I really like.

From very shortly after they brought me home from the hospital, I took a long time to fall asleep but once asleep slept through the night. As I've gotten older, I've figured out that my body clock just wants me up at night and asleep until mid-day, and that if I go to sleep very very late, I fall asleep relatively quickly (for me anyway) and am generally much happier. Doesn't seem at all connected to celiac, given that the basic pattern was set before I was on any solid foods at all and hasn't changed since I went gluten-free.

That describes me, exactly! I'm happy to be self-employed so I can set my own hours, I never make appointments before noon if I can help it. :D

Interestingly, whenever I get a really good stretch of time without glutenings, meaning I'm feeling my healthiest and best, I only need six-seven hours of sleep, I sleep like a log (not a baby!) and wake up without an alarm clock at an hour that surprises me!

I have ALWAYS been a night owl. I worked at a hospital on the 7p-7a shift and LOVED it. I thrive at night. I don't know why. My husband jokes that we will be ready for kids because he will take days and I will take nights. I am up till nearly dawn, and then I sleep till 4 in the afternoon. I don't work right now, so it is ok. But I will be screwed if I have to get a job! I am taking internet classes so I am at my own pace/schedule. Works for me, for now. And I am going to nursing school, so perhaps I will be on the night shift again one day. I love nights!

I sleep like a baby through the night and have not really had much trouble sleeping. Now, I will wake up easily to any little noise but can get back to sleep quick. I am however a night owl but I am a college student so what do you expect lol.

I had horrible insomnia up until I went gluten free. It was so bad I had to start medicating because I would turn into a zombie by the end of the week. Now I'm in bed by 11:30 on weeknights and waking me up is a feat, but I'm up by 7 on work days. This is from someone who lived on 2 hours a night for years, just from never being able to fall asleep. Though a friday a couple weeks ago I stayed up all night, but it was a party so it doesn't count :)

    • A ha ha ha ha This article is so flip floppin I can't even begin to comment  I.e. - you might be gluten intolerant but can eat some gluten !!!!????? may all potential people with real intolerances find their way here and not use this as their primary source of info on celiac, gluten intolerance, and wheat IgE allergy   yikes
    • Yes the crumpets are excellent. I have them quite often in the winter. Look and taste is excellent. They're probably not as chewy as the gluten ones but that's not really an issue as they are chewy in comparison to what I eat now. 
    • Wow! Didn't realise that was a possibilty! I've had the little biscuits they make, they're really nice and the only danger is finishing the entire bag at a sitting! The weird thing is that I wasn't that fussed about panettones until I couldn't have them any more, now I really want one  The BeFree wraps are the best for burritos and the Newburn ones are good for sandwiches and even mini pizzas. They're each expensive but very good as a treat or if travelling. 
    • If you are still worried you can also ask that the dry ingredients be mixed/poured outside (eg. on a deck, balcony etc.) and only be brought inside once combined with the wet ingredients. I believe someone else on the board once posted this as a suggestion, and I took it up to avoid roommate mutiny. Before I insisted on this, I would always get sick when roommates baked, even if I wasn't there at the time or hid in my room during. It might be however, that your current method is fine for you though - not a lot of studies in this area to prove anything either way.
    • I am more stressed about what sales will be out on cyber Monday and black Friday then the actual thanksgiving holidays lol. Cooking is just cooking, I do it daily, just doing more and some special dishes. NOW once a year sales on products I use daily like supplements, spices, foods, flours, etc....now that has me stressed. Like I have a limited budget but if I get them on these sales I save money for the next few months buying in bulk on sale......but then the stress of borrowing money and doing so....which purchases to make, what saves me the most in the long run, will it last me til the next sale...balancing all this out with a limited budget when your bad with numbers is scary/frustrating. Damnest thing is I do not care for the specials on technology. vanity items, etc. I am just focusing on essentials and stuff I use or would use daily to improve my life and make savings in the long run. I think the only actual 2 items I am looking at is a charm for my mother for Christmas and a water filtration system for my kitchen. Other then that it is all food, supplements, spices, and medications lol.

      OH another funny thought due to lack of orders, I am opting to go help cook a community dinner at a church for over 450 people. I already brought/opted in to bring my own spices, starches, etc for the areas to keep it safe for my stations and will be helping with the turkeys and serving up a bunch of gluten free/corn free desserts so I will be in a safe element for my health risk. Got 16 turkeys, 1 food service pan of gluten free pear cobbler, 1 pan of pumpkin chocolate brownies gluten free, pumpkin pies to pull out and do starting in the morning.
