6 years vegan
6 years ago today I went . I was only going to do it for one week, just to see if I could do it. That week was a miserable week, in which I constantly craved a cheese pizza. I never thought I would make 7 days, much less do it for the rest of my life. Then, on the 7th day, I woke up with no allergies for the first time in my entire life. It was an amazing feeling and, I realize now, a truly life-altering decision. I am grateful I did it. After cancer, years of low immunity, and a lifetime of being sick with severe bouts of the flu, very regular colds, stomach troubles and multiple other ailments, it feels so weirdly strange to feel so good. I know I say it all the time, but I really have never felt better in my life.
