Talk about a time when you struggled with your Veganism?

I’ve never struggled as far as wanting to not be vegan, but I struggled with severe depression for the first six months because I didn’t know how to live in a nonvegan world.

If you suffer from depression and need help there are great places you can find help online. Places like Betterhelp give you quick easy access to therapists who can help you build tools to manage your psychological well-being.

Excellent for your child’s lunchbox!
