I lived not far from you, in a North Dallas suburb called Carrollton, for years before moving back home to Southern California. I feel for you!

Hang in there.

It's not my fault where @Gita lives and how people treat her.

HUGZ!

But how has it been hard for your boy friend, it's you the vegan, or did me meant coping with your emotions? Being the odd one is great, it means you ain't a puppet of society with all the bad that comes with it, be proud that your oddity is one of compassion! Nothing negative in that, lift that chin up! As for being picked on, your friends should know better. People that loved you should never do something that is upsetting you and you should make things clear with them. A little teasing is fine, it's part of having friends, but if it becomes a kind of bullying it's wrong. If they are real friends they will understand. Make sure you are also respecting their choice as meat eaters though. Being pushy brings nothing good most of the time.

David3 Hi Nat,


There is a huge vegan / raw food social group in Fort Worth: http://www.meetup.com/The-Fort-Worth...-Meetup-Group/ . They have regular get-togethers, including one coming up on October 17th (see the link).

Hugs! My only vegan friend just went away so I've been feeling pretty alone in this meat eating world also?been relying on the interwebz heavily for support as well. It gets better!

Linky I wonder if there is some kind of Vegan Skype chat or something.

Anyway, Welcome to the forum, Nat. You'll find a lot of like-minded people on this forum. A lot. But it must be hard living in the center of all that. Here-
