    I am doing a pretty good job managing my anxiety lately. I can recognize it pretty quickly and shut myself up or deal with it. This is all well and good, but I don't think it's going to improve/go away until I can sort out this sleep issue.

    I'm exhausted today. I'm frustrated about some communication issues at work that I don't think I can talk to my boss about until I have some more "evidence".

    I'm so tired that I'm feeling queasy. I think I'll just buzz my head tonight. It's less work and the fuzz will be awesome.

    I think I might make some hot cocoa if there's some mix in the cupboard. It's just Swiss Miss. The little sores (painless canker sores) that I used to get frequently have not been going away lately. Maybe it's from eating more fruit? I don't know. Cocoa will be tasty and will probably make them worse.

    That's interesting that your sleep is suffering since you gave up gluten. I wonder if it's to do with the opiate effect gluten has on some people...

This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Sleep was bad before I gave up gluten too, but that was also the week+ leading up to the engagement party. I used to sleep this poorly before I started taking 5-HTP, now it seems to happen randomly sometimes, but not for this long. I'm not taking 5-HTP tonight and keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have a melt down tomorrow. I will bring it with me to the lakehouse just in case.

    I had such serious sleep difficulties for most of my life, and now I'm finding on a high fruit diet I sleep really well! Optimal sleep happens for me after 300gs carbs. Total calories plays a role, but no matter how much I ate on HFLC, my sleep was shit.

    It has been a my whole life kind of thing too, even as a toddler. Not taking hours to fall asleep is a huge improvement in recent years, but I'd like to sleep the whole night.

    I took magnesium last night because I'd only taken 400 mg during the day. I woke up around when my alarm usually goes off but otherwise slept well!

    I am probably breaking my gluten-free streak today for some fast food on the road. We're just killing some time now until we leave for the lake house. It's raining now, but hopefully will be clearing up later. Should be fairly hot tomorrow & sunday!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    I do to but during the day. I guess I have average sleep, not great but nothing to really lose... Sleep over... Oh god. Anyway, after going moderate carb I have more energy and no swings so I can stay awake during the day easily but sometimes my body/mind won't shut up at night.

    Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

    Isn't it interesting that so many of these symptoms correlate? insomnia, gut issues, depression, anxiety... I have all these issues as well.

    Have you ever tried charcoal for your gut issues? I need to start sorting mine out...
