tongue  Well xmas is behind me now and thankfully got the first 8 days of Jan. over ,up here in Eastern Canada it is a cold month ,so I am always trying to rush it away .I have been sleeping alot more then usual ,perhaps it is the trying to get  over Jan. but not sure. I have been very gratefull for my little bed fellow that is always ready for a good nap. I cover him up on the cold nights in his little blanket with dog paws. As he is a minature poodle I have let his hair grow long for winter. I get up around 7am and by 9 or 10am I am ready to go back to bed and sleep for 2 or 3 hours. By 10pm I am ready to go again and sometimes even by 4 pm.Just wandering if any others here are sleeping Jan. away ? lol gail

I've had a lot of times where all I've wanted to do was sleep, months where I had to take a nap every single day. My doctor always said it was just a part of Crohn's, the fatigue. The cold doesn't help that I know, you just want to bundle up and snooze away! I could use a nap right now as a matter of fact! LOL

Hi Dee Dee You are right about the B-12 I was 10 days late for my shot, and did notice more get up and go after I took it ,but still loving my naps.

Jen Isn't it amazing how the cold does seem to make a person want to snuggle in I sometimes think that is nature's way, of helping us that live with it get threw long bouts of it. Actually it has not been too bad so far. When it's below -15 at night I find that cold -5 today and I think -10 for tonight. The only thing it seems to take me a bit of awhile to wake up again after that long how about you are you sleepy when you wake up?lol gail

You know I never really notice a huge change after my B12 shots, but late last week I was waiting for my husband to get ready for work and just sitting all wrapped up in a blanket comfy and cozy. He left and since I didn't have any big plans for the day I wasn't in a big hurry to get uncomfy and cozy. Well the next thing I knew, 3 hours had gone by. I have never in all my life gone back to "bed" and slept that late. Not even in my teenage years. BUT, I was due for my B12 shot last weekend, so I guess I have something to blame it on other than plain old laziness.

Im in northern western Canada, and I get up by 6:30am, go to work, am home by 5:30pm and in bed by 8:00pm. My husband thinks it's great because he can watch his Spike TV all night and the cats think it's great because they get a body to snuggle up too. I've always needed alot of sleep though. Mom use to joke that all she would have to do is point to a spot and say "sleep" and I would right there.

Hmm... Maybe it's err... something in the air? I've been sleeping more than usual, too... At the moment, I don't consider it a bad thing... since it wasn't all that long ago I wasn't getting any sleep at all.... And college doesn't start until the 12th... so..
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.

Hi Glad I'am not the only snuggle bug and bet it felt good Suzanne .

Sniper yes you bet I am about as plumped up as a baer and digging the heals in for the long haul. Hmm too much sleep ,I guess you are right nice to get it when we can.

Allison sounds like your husband is living the good life with his TV .

Isergodur Wow you have some sleepy poodles too .Wow only a few hours of sun up there now. The pred. can be a hard thing when sleep is needed .I remember getting up at 3 am and coming here for a hour or so to read the post .

Celey glad you too are getting some rest and your right about getting lots before college takes off again. How's the dating going kiddo, any cute guys around? Ahh the young are blessed... lol gail

Good question Gail.  I think it is because of the time of year.  The sun goes down earlier, less daylight time and you just want to sleep.  I take B12 shots twice a month, and still when I get home from work everyday, I still take a nap before I go to bed.  At least thats what hubby and I call it:)  But it could also be the Crohns causing it too, as I am just recovering from a recent flare.  Because I am getting tired again, I think its time to get the bloods checked again, because I did have some anemia last year.

And Celey, I agree with Navy, don't let life pass you by, you are in college, enjoy it.

Hi Celey I agree no harm in at least looking.I know that college people do tend to waylay the relationship thing, how many more years Celey to go? Forgive me but I might have forgotten what goal are you reaching for in college?

Navy good advice ,I didn't go to college myself but sure do admire those that can and do. I do feel Celey is becoming much more social at least here on the computer now she is feeling better this year. Good stuff.

Nanners Yes it's good to keep a eye to the blood work ,have you always had a nap after work or is this something new for you? Have you had some improvement in your bloodwork?lol gail

Yes Gail I did have some improvement for awhile, but it seems to have returned. I think I might get my bloods checked again, cause I just got off Pred, and it can't hurt to check again.

Hey, I do live... Now, that I'm feeling well, I plan to get involved in the club I was in again... Check out more library books...

Just my idea of living isn't like everybody else's. What's wrong with not dating until after college? If by some freak accident or whatever, I die before then, then it's no big deal to me...

I've never been much of a relationship person... I mean, that isn't to say, I don't talk to people or anything... because I do...

But, I'm the sort of person that likes to focus on... educational pursuits you could say. I'd probably have more fun reading a Terry Pratchett book than going on a date. Or just staying at home and working on my stories. It's just the way I am.

I recall when I was in my Botany class and learning (just the tip of the iceberg unfortunately) how complicated photosynthesis was... I got more excited about that then an amusement park water ride...

Hi Celey glad you have a club that will give you some extra fun in life. You seem to enjoy writing anything special ? I love to learn about things too and science was something that took my interest.Problem solving is something that I also find interesting. I also used to do alot of reading at one time hope your library has a good selection. lol gail

I wonder why we all find it necessary to make up reasons why we like to take naps, we're all guilty of it. It's like if the phone rings
and the person on the other end says "oh did I wake you", we jump and say "who me no!" Gail I think sniper is right, go ahead enjoy,
your body must need it. I envy you, I get dog tired, but just can't sleep. I need a slap upside the head sometimes...

I've learned to listen to the body...when I'm sleepy or extremely fatigued...I stop what I'm doing (the nice thing about a flex schedule) and snooze. Even if I can't sleep, just closing my eyes and being still for 1/2 hour helps. I'm sure some of it was being late on the B12, however, I can't believe you're getting too much daylight this time of year as well. Not enough sunshine puts me in fatigue mode very easily this time of year.

No clue as to why you're sleeping so much. I'm sleeping too much. Went over to my folks' place today. Slept for six hours. We had a cold front blow in. Maybe its the cold. Also, upon waking, holy COW did I ache and creak like I was in the body of someone twice my age. Ahhh well.
27/f/CD. 4 CD related surgeries: 2 resections, 2 JP drains, 3 NG tubes, many absesses (including the one my most recent surgery scraped off my ovary) and fistulas.
Currently trying to figure out hip and knee joint pain.
Have lost in these surgeries: appendix, 8 in. intestine, R fallopian tube, gallbladder, 10 in. intestine
Crohns Dx'd: February 2008.
Pentasa (and much mental screaming)

Trying to hang in there until January so I'll have some insurance and can visit a rheumy, neuro, GI, primary, pain control, and possibly a shrink so I could stop crying and living in my own lil pity party. :-P

Hi Well I got up yesterday and napped 3 times now everytime I turn around the dog wants to go to bed keeps running towards the bedroom, wow have I got his brain in a twirl..Slept on the couch last night to keep extra heat in the house as it was colder outside then my fridge.The funny part was when my teen tried to take him to bed with her and he started growling, Being the little gentlemen that he is he went on the computer chair for the night probably thinks it's my second bed.. Almost ready for my first nap ....Vicky I know not being able to sleep is worse...
Broomhilda I went and pulled back the curtains yesterday just so I could feel the sun on me ...nice..

Joie having a few body aches but nothing too serious, join the nappers club ...lol gail

I can sleep FOREVER. I think it drives my husband nuts. If he tries to wake me on the weekend before 11 I get so mad and am mean and rude (and don't remember it later when I do wake up.) However, if the dog comes and wakes me up I react much better. He has trained the dog to do his dirty work.

Celey - there is nothing wrong w/ putting off dating but just one little word of advice. I have found it a lot harder to make friends outside of college. I moved a couple times and outside people at my work didn't really meet a lot of new people. I wasn't into the bar scene and didn't have many friends of friends up here either. Luckily I had met my husband in college. I'm not saying you have to date, just remember that it will be tougher to meet new people after if you are the type (like me) that defines fun differently.

I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.
