Just need to get something out.
Saw my psychiatrist today, I ended up telling her about my veganism...as soon as she heard she told me that she'd like me to get a blood test.
I even explained to her that I'm pretty healthy anyway (the only thing I know I'm lacking in is vitamin D, as I hate the sun) and that I try to eat foods fortified with b12 - cereals, vegan veggie patties etc.
I'm sick of people thinking I must be the unhealthiest person in the world because I don't get as much of one little vitamin that you actually don't need that much of anyway!
I remember reading here somewhere that b12 comes from the soil, animals eating the vegetation which has the b12, so that's how people get it from animals.
So basically we just need to eat organic veggies rather than animal carcasses! Am I right? Or did I just get that totally mixed up with something else?
Uh it's been one of those weeks, everyone is bugging me about my choices.
