Today I think I’ll always be tired. I used to sleep really well. Deeply, soundly, with little ever waking me up.
This changed the minute my celiac symptoms emerged. Immediately, I turned into a restless light sleeper who was and still is on the verge of exhaustion daily. I was hoping after the year wait of a GF diet that it would be one of the effects that would slowly fade away.
I’ve come to realize after many talks with my doctors that due to the low levels of gluten I take in daily, this may never go away unless I approached a ‘almost’ completely unprocessed diet. The thing is, even gluten free stamped foods most of the time aren’t actually gluten free. They are just gluten free to a certain minimum that the FDA has considered non-harmful.
The REAL thing is, it still does us harm. Maybe we aren’t puking in a hospital each time, but we (a person with celiac) can show continued symptoms that affect their everyday life such sleep issues, stomach problems etc.
It would be nice to feel rested one day. I miss it.
