Okay so I told my best friend that I'm going vegan and she was no help at all here's what she said "But you're already so skinny you'll just starve" "Plants are alive too and you're killing them" Then I started to tell her the difference between animals and plants and she continued "They're still alive and need to eat and drink breath etc" I know i'm very skinny (about 20-30 pounds under weight but it's normal in my family) I guess she was just looking our for me like a true bff but It still really hurt me And lots of people aren't any help... I really care for the animals, and my health, because most people in my family when they are in their 70's or even younger get diabetes and stuff. I also feel SO bad for the animals and happens to them! How can I get support from my friends and family? Oh and how do I tell my family my mom is really against animal lovers and says she hates all animal lovers so what should I tell her?
