Side effects

16 May

Well, I haven’t been responding pleasantly to the methotrexate I must take each Sunday.  I’ve been experiencing pounding headaches and nausea, and hearing from two other gals who have RA, they have said it is nasty stuff.  One of them even told me that she was told to take methotrexate during the evening with fattier foods so that the food coats your stomach so you won’t have near as bad of a reaction.  She also said it’s much better to sleep off the nausea.  I will try that method and if I don’t feel any better, I will be calling my Dr.

I was able to enjoy the fantastic 80 degree weather today by taking a brisk walk this afternoon.  I was fairly sleepy after work but made myself go.  It was nice to be able to soak up some sun, especially since I am low on Vitamin D.

I am still unable to find a nanny position, but haven’t given up.  I look almost each day for new posting’s and am determined that one of them will work out eventually!  God will provide 🙂

I had such a blast this past weekend with Matt and his family.  For our one year date, Matt and I went to a hibachi Japanese grill and had such a fun time watching the chef cook our meal right in front of us.  He did some really neat tricks, and we even caught food in our mouth.  Sounds weird, but if you’ve ever been, you know what I am speaking of.  I ordered chicken teriyaki, which came with rice, noodles, cooked vegetables, clear soup, and a small salad.  I even got some super easy-to-use chopsticks!

Until next time, soak up some sun!

      I was surprised that I actually tried all of the food. They are quite nice and I loved the atmosphere!
