I went vegan two weeks ago and immediately became sick. Related? You tell me. Coughing, runny nose, sore throat, headaches, weakness, etc. I even lost my voice, and that never happens to me (...so there. ;p). Nearly two weeks of it and although I'm slowly feeling better every day, I'm still coughing up phlegm and blowing my nose here and there. For a while I did not connect the two. I was like, "What is this? Do I have allergies now?" I never had them before, but apparently you can develop them later in life. I think I'm like, getting to be middle aged, or whatever, so who knows? Good times. Anyway, then I heard of all these other people that got sick two weeks ago too. My manager then said I was one of like, 5 of her clients that got sick two weeks ago. And that's just what she knows of. Go figure. Then, I thought about dairy. I went from years of eating eggs and cheese, not to mention meat, like, every day for years, to not at all. Leave it to me to jump head first into a life change so drastic without giving it a moment's thought, just because I felt like it one day. (...hi Kodi grandmother of the bride dresses <3 ) I just love animals, and the planet and stuff, so I decided to try it because, why not? But maybe my body just needed two weeks to expel all the phlegm that has built up in my body caused by all the years of dairy I've been eating, and that's why I've been hacking up clear globs of throat goo for the better part of July. Sorry if you just got grossed out by that vivid image, but for those of you still with me, does anyone have anything to add to these thoughts of getting oddly sick in the middle of summer, and the possibility that it may just be my body acclimating to going vegan? Talk to me.
