I got a troll on a post I wrote nearly two years ago and I would like to address his/her concerns because they’re amusing and I need some content.
Here is the comment:
OMG. What a mess. If you had only eaten real food like any other omnivore your health would’ve been so much better.
Restless legs: Your body was low on iron, due to your poor diet, and your baby needing what little nutrients you had.
Gallstones: Not enough ‘real’ fats in your diet.
So you had your gallbladder removed. Didn’t take hydrocordone — kudos — but took Tylenol, the number 1 cause of liver failure.
Your poor kid. Hopefully you’ll drop your pride, and learn to eat real food, including meat, or at least eggs, and cholestrol.
You’ll feel so much better, and perhaps your kid will survive beyond age 3-4 without developing ADD, ADHD, if not autism.
The only real point I’d like to make is that I didn’t become vegan until after Avery’s first birthday. By this point Avery was only nursing a couple of times a day and she was eating a well-balanced diet JUST LIKE SHE DOES NOW.
We are no longer vegan but we are vegetarian and she is very healthy as am I so thank you for your concerns, anonymous toolbox.
I know that I open myself up for criticism but why do we feel the need to attack each others’ parenting and life style choices? I want to know how my not eating meat affects you. It doesn’t. Thank you for your concern, really, but shut the fuck up.
