Okay, so I haven't been on here for a while, but short story I found out what was wrong with me and I'm in the process of untwisting bowels and such and switched to eating raw again and feeling so much more motivated.
But! That's not the point of this haha
Lately, well, okay. More like my whole life, but now more than ever, I feel like I'm drifting away from every single person in my life. No one here shares my views on things other than my mom, my friends "support" my healing process but don't understand it at all (everyone I am close with eats at fast food places, thinks being vegan is impossible for them, etc.. there has been more than one time where I have brought a smoothie to some restaurant because I'm simply not interested in eating there) and especially now that I finally got back on track, finally got help with the real cause of my digestive problems, and finally am more motivated than ever to create beautiful recipes and start my life in a new province studying nutrition, my friends are just not appealing to me at all. They don't get it, they don't understand why I don't want to go out anymore, or stay up all night, or sit with them while they all eat horribly and such, (and also I'm an introvert, but when I was sick I was hanging out with them so much more because I just didn't know what was wrong with me so my passion for healing just went on hiatus) and I can never, ever talk about nutrition to them because no one gets it, or at least, no one finds it interesting, truly.
The past few days have been really bad with family issues, so much stress, drama, missed school and work, feeling sick (now recovering) but I just.. I just don't want to explain this to any of my friends. They all think I'm just "sick" and it's "because I'm vegan"... no. That's the one thing that is keeping me alive. But I just don't feel connected anymore, simply want to move, graduate, meet new people with the same views as me (in 3 months we will be! to a place full of fruit and vegans.. omg so excited) but I can't seem to be motivated to stay super happy and excited with them for the next few months when I'm just.. not.
ANYWAY the point of this lol is, do you ever feel drained when you have no one in your life who understands being vegan, I mean friend wise? I can't wait to move and pursue my passion but for the mean time, I want to focus on healing and tons of fruit but everyone seems to get the wrong idea.
