A Hangover? Me?

Yes each Friday I deal with a hangover. Are you surprised? I am a Christian blogger and writing about a hangover.. Okay I admit it. I am having a little fun with the post.

It is what those of us who take Methotrexate call the Methotrexate hangover. I take it on Thursdays, so each Friday even though I have thoughts of doing something, those thoughts quickly evaporate as I realize all I really want and perhaps can do is sleep and relax.

I gladly put up with it because the medication has already improved some aspects of life for me.

And then there are those strange cravings. Chocolate ice cream with bananas, chocolate ice cream with Greek yogurt with any fruit, corn chips, but yesterday I did manage to include one healthy meal of chicken and veggies. πŸ™‚

Saturday comes and I am ready for the coffee shop. Sunday comes and now I can stand during worship without back spasms. Morning stiffness is lessened, but I still require my morning coffee. πŸ™‚

Speaking of Saturdays, due to school starting Fridays will become the day I take my meds, so Saturdays will be my new Methotrexate hangover day.

September 1st I will go see my Rheumatologist for a follow up. Hopefully no added meds. I do have some promising news to share with him.

Just a glimpse into my spoonie life-someone living with chronic illness.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Thanks for the glimpse into your situation. It helps to know how to pray for you. What a blessing to have meds that help, even when they come with side effects. I’m praying for you!

  2. You had me at β€œHang over,” Matt.πŸ˜€ It’s good you are still able to do all the things God put you on earth for. Chronic illness doesn’t have to be the end of usefulness to the Kingdom of God!

  3. Wonderful news Matt! I pray this medication continues to do its stuff, despite the hangover. Best wishes with the start of another school year. Blessings to you and your students.

  4. I am sending you love and warmth during this period. I once suffered chronic pain on my hip, my morning and night routine was made up of taking my pills faithfully even before I pray and sleep. Weh!! Thank God he sent a doctor who operated the hip drained all the puss in the hip and gave me my life back, I have an idea of what it means to be dependant on drugs. May the Lord give you grace and just know that I love you and pray for you.

  5. Loved the way you got us hooked on to the post. you’re doing well and the Lord is with you. Remember where He brought you from and where He is willing and able to take you. There’s greatness and goodness ahead. Trust Jesus.
