Hi peoples...I also started out in VegWeb, but didn't post (just shy I guess). Just enjoyed reading about all the wonderful folks and such. I did chat in the chatroom with a few of you a bit.<br><br><br><br>
I've been a vegetarian for 26 years and converted to vegan about 8 months ago. I live in a city in western Canada and have rarely met another vegetarian here, let alone a vegan. It's a lonely existance, but like anything else, once you've seen the light, you can't intellectualize living in the dark.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, once I found VegWeb and other people like me, it was like finding what planet I was from. Imagine what this is like for someone who has been a vegetarian since they were 17 and never interacted with another.<br><br><br><br>
I am married and live with an omni spouse, an omni son and a son who is also vegetarian.<br><br><br><br>
Just wanted to say hello and happy to be aboard.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

Hi, welcome. I know what you mean. I haven't been vegan as long as you've been veg, but I know what it's like not knowing any vegans in "real life." I've only met one vegetarian! Strange too, since, where I live (California), there are supposedly lots of vegheads!
