I've been on a total vegetarian diet for almost a week and have been feel especially optimistic, grateful and have more patience toward my kids lately. Not something I expected. Having allergies (mold, flared up by dairy) and an autoimmune disease leads to feeling bad a lot. I guess it's easier to be optimistic if I'm feeling better from a healthier diet. Anyone else experience this?

I experienced this as well. I think for me it was a bit different though, more related to emotion than health. I've been having a rough time for the past few years, and doing something that was good not only for me, but for the animals and environment as well has really brightened my outlook.

Do good.
Feel good.

Don't get me wrong I still have joint pain and fatigue due to the Behcet's, but I feel more well. Maybe I was eating stuff that messed with my blood sugar. I used to eat a lot of carbs from granola bars (sugary), crackers and such. Probably not good for hypoglycemia. I'm curious to hear more feedback.

I have felt a lot better since I stopped eating meat as well. I felt guilty for the animals when I ate meat, and that might be it. But doing something healthy for yourself always should brighten your day.
