Sleep, Where Are You?

Lately I have been feeling tired. Really tired. There have been days where all I wanted to do was sleep.  With a 3 year old and work, that is not an option. Those are the days Im like a zombie. I can barely think, my appetite is nowhere to be found and I have trouble sleeping...getting that good sleep. 

I wish I could be more like my husband - close my eyes & be immersed in dreamland instantly. But Im not.It's always taken me a while to fall asleep.Lately though, there is not much of that whole deep sleep going on for me.

At times I wonder if I have accidentally ingested the dreaded gluten. It's not a far off possibility. We have a small kitchen with minimal counter space. Sometimes my little guy with stick his hands in a bowl of a gluten free snack for a bite before I can wash his hands. Often before I even notice. There are also times where hubby, as vigilant as he is, assumes safety of food without reading ingredients. I get it though, it kind of makes me shake my head to see gluten in certain food.

Months ago, my family Doctor diagnosed me with Chronic Fatigue. I didn't know what to think and I still don't. There are many different theories on this issue. I forgot about it until recently when I became so tired again. 

I hope it's something minor like stress affecting my sleep. Hopefully with Spring well on it's way, the fresh air and sunshine will help me get back to my usual self.

  1. Could it be adrenal fatigue? Are you able to wake up ok in the morning, or is it impossible for you to get out of bed? I had adrenal fatigue for some time, a condition most medical doctors don't acknowledge, and I think I beat it. Hopefully we'll have a post on adrenal fatigue on Stuffed Pepper soon, but if want some more information about how I did it, email me. I'm not a doctor, so I don't want to post "medical" information publicly.

  2. I have never heard of adrenal fatigue. Some days I can get out of bed no problem, while other days all I want to do is sleep. It's very strange as the fatigue sort of comes and goes. I'm looking forward to the post about adrenal fatigue on Stuffed Pepper!
