About The Girl and The Bum Thumb

Cari Elliott is a senior Mass Media student at Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas.  She loves to write, even when her hands (and her thumb) do not.  After obtaining her degree, Cari hopes to become an author, preferably of science fiction and fantasy novels, but she would be happy writing about anything.  Cari played the snare drum in her high school’s marching band, but has since then hung up her sticks due to the RA.  While Cari isn’t writing, she can be found scrap-booking, painting, playing video games, jamming to some rock ‘n’ roll tunes, and spending time with her family and friends, who encourage her to live life to the fullest, despite her disease.

Cari hopes to learn about everything and anything, travel everywhere, meet many people of many cultures, learn several languages, and experience everything life has to offer.

This bum thumb used to not be so bum.  While it is currently on the mend, the bum thumb prefers taking  naps in its little splint bed, taking long baths, and relaxing all day.

    I found your Methotrexate article and really connected with it. I cant even explain to myself why I feel nauseous when I see the colour yellow and I only have to look at the vial/metho box and I want to vomit – it is the thought of it and you described it so well.

    I even missed my dose last Friday as I physically could not pick up the box without dry retching. Funny enough, the injection itself doesnt make me sick but my body knows it is doing something to it and that it is all out of balance so i guess its rebelling but suffice to say, the colour yellow is associated with it.

    I also get exhaustion about an hour or so after my injection – it’s awful and my body just feels ‘wrong’. However, missing my dose has come with a price as I have upset my illness and now I am really hurting.

    Thanks again for an informative blog – really glad I found it.
