Ah, I actually did find one, pretty close to me too. Thanks! I'll have to see if my insurance will cover her. If not, I have this weird thing that I'd never heard of before my husband got his job....

I don't qualify for SNAP because I voluntarily left my job and my husband makes "too much money." The reason we're broke is because we were living slightly under our means before I quit (thankfully...

I don't know very much about beer sadly, but my husband brews. He brews Amber Ales, IPAs (I can't stand IPAs), and Mead (yes I know mead is not beer). My husband has dreams of quitting his job and...

You bring up a good point about calories. When I am more on the manic side of things I eat perfectly. I weigh my food, I make sure that I get enough calories, protein, fat, and carbs, etc. I take...

That's a good point. Once someone's an established vegan, it's like preaching to the choir. I'm a new vegan (been vegetarian for a few years, and transitioning to veganism). I've been full vegan for...

Question How does seeing violence in vegan documentaries affect you?

So, I'm just 30 minutes into Earthlings. Obviously it's a pretty upsetting movie. I'm wondering if anyone feels like they're actually a worse person for having seen the kind of violence portrayed...

That's so true! I almost feel like a whole new person (in a good way!). AND cows/goats/pigs/chickens etc. aren't sacrificing their lives for my entertainment! Win Win by my book! X-D
