"How a plant-based lifestyle destroyed my world"

"About six years ago I decided to give it one more try before I gave up. My goal was simple, I wanted to live one more year. My wife and I had recently buried my dad and her mom, we didn't talk about it but we knew I wasn't too far behind. I looked at the pain in her eyes as she put my socks and shoes on one morning and it hit me... I was next, I was the next loss that she would experience.

In my early twenties I was diagnosed with a disease called Elhers Danlos Syndrome. During the next two decades the disease had taken it's toll on me. I did what I was supposed to do. I was told to move less and keep my body as quiet as possible. As a result of my choices I found myself a 400+ pound, sick, crippled addict by the time I was 38 years old. Desperate and hopeless I stumbled onto a couple films on Netflix, one of which was Forks Over Knives. I wasn't searching for anything but a way to slow down the speed of the spiral I was stuck in. I had no idea what I was doing or how I was going to do it. I had no idea where the plant-based path would take me, in fact, I had no idea what plant-based even meant. I also had no idea that it would destroy my world.

That is awesome.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
