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.

    • Thanks for that.  Will get her tested for deficiencies.  I did take her to a naturopath and get her on a bunch of vitamins, but she never was tested via bloods, so will get on to that, thanks  
    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come! Best wishes Matt
    • Please share what was so difficult about starting your account.
    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings
