I found your website about 2 days ago, and I've been insanely reading through everything. So, I thought I would say hello and introduce my lurking self.
I've been a vegan now for about 4 months and I'm so very ashamed of myself for not starting sooner, but we cannot beat ourselves up...right? My fiancÚ (I think you type it as DF, but I have no idea in all honesty), also became a vegan 4 months ago. We have both been vegetarians for some years (him 10 yrs, and myself since I was around 8, with the odd teenagers years being my fallout).
This might be long winded, I'm just very glad I'm here!
I've been off oral birth control now for about 2 years. I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and a bladder disease (name has slipped my mind) around the same time. I was in so much pain I couldn't move, everything hurt, even my lungs. My lovely man threw the birth control in the trash and ever since then, each month has become less and less painful. I no longer drugged and can see straight. I'm down to 2 days on medium cramping, for 6-7 days of such horrible pain I couldn't breath. This is something to celebrate!
So, this leads to why I am posting in the pregnancy section, I am not yet pregnant, although at any stage I could be.
We are 'planning' children for about 2 years from now, although it is a constant conversation in our house, everyday. And I think last night I convinced DF (?) against circumcision, very impressed.
Currently we are living in Ireland on a mini work/vacation, but looking forward to going home to Vancouver,BC in the coming months, where I will be returning to work as a Nanny where I attempt attachment parenting. I found an awesome family who believes in AP and supports my dietary choices, which is wonderful because now I can kiss those lovely children after noon.
So, I will stop rambling now. I'm looking forward to speaking more with everyone, I already feel like you guys are my long lost friends.
