So, I fell hard off the vegan wagon the past two weeks. I got myself deep into some dairy - Greek yogurt, cheese. Ugh. And my body responded - big time.



I have rheumatoid arthritis (the kind that hits you when you're a kid). After ditching dairy, I was feeling awesome - I had no pain unless I was bending my knees too far (they're permanently damaged - this will never go away unless I get them replaced). After my little crash and burn into Dairyland, I am in so much pain it's hideous. Talk about learning a lesson the hard way. What was I thinking!?



Anyway, I'm back. I'm disappointed in myself, but at least I'm being punished

Everyone makes mistakes. At least you know how to get some relief for your condition.

Holy ****!



You're lucky. Now you have even more of a "motivation" to stay vegan XD.



Sorry about your overall condition though. :\\

If everyone would at least try going vegetarian for a spell and allow themselves enough time to "detox" of meat and feel the differences in their health and energy levels (and in some cases weight management etc) I think there would be a lot more long-term converts. I think too many people are skeptical or pressured by the stigma that can accompany such a drastic dietary/lifestyle change.

Wowser - you must be feeling crappy right now. Well, at least you know why you're feeling ill, and can do something about it. It's a shame you fell of the wagon, but I'm sure you have the determination to get right back on it now that you have felt the difference for yourself. Don't be hard on yourself, tomorrow is a new day and maybe in a couple if weeks you'll have repaired a little bit of damage, Good luck xxx

When I went vegetarian I didn't feel any different, physically. It honestly did nothing magical for my health. I was a teenager at the time, so that might have had something to do with it, but if that had been my motivation I wouldn't have stuck with vegetarianism and eventually veganism. I'd rather see people make the switch for ethical reasons.



Although I guess any way they get into it works. And if it does give someone noticable health benefits that's a nice reason to stay veg*n.

That is the one good thing about being LI or allergic, or whatnot- it is a hardcore reason for not pleasin' with the cheesin'. I'm an uberdork tonight. Forgive me, but seriously, don't be hard on yourself, people trip up, it's difficult. Just jump back in. I hope you feel better soon! Cheers

I love your uberdorkness - you have made me laugh a few times tonight!! I love that you used the term smartie pants in the other thread - for some reason, that term cracks me up... Feeling a bit dorky too!!

Sorry I meant to reply to you as well as Lucydaisy!!! I'm sorry you're feeling not well and hope you feel better soon.. Don't beat yourself for making a mistake - humans make mistakes... At least you probably won't fall off the wagon again after such a lesson... Good luck with it all.
