"Hey Lucie,

You say you're still on medication and have had lots of therapy? Maybe it's a matter of revisiting old coping techniques and anything else like that, that therapy taught you?

And Drea is absolutely right! Even someone with everything material that they could ever want isn't insusceptible to mental illness. Any sex, race, age, class; it doesn't discriminate...

  • Feel guilty about eating meat?

    It's not all the time but every now and then i feel very guilty and upset about eating meat. I would like to say it was as simple as saying I wont eat it again but I don't eat alot of other foods to make up for my diet. I am really fussy with my food and don't eat alot of beg at all.

    It's not a constant feeling of guilt but when it comes on I keep thinking.

    That was an animals life, baby, parent ect.
    I know it's how humans have evolved but.......

    I totally understand

    Would reducing the amount of meat you eat or changing the quality of meat you eat (e.g. free range from local sources etc) help you feel less guilty? There are lots of ways to unpick these thoughts without having to give up meat (unless you want to!)

      Hey I'm Bobby,

      ​I totally understand - I'm going veggie for 2017, trying it out for a year to see how I feel about living without meat, whether it makes me happier etc. Meat substitutes seem to be the way to go to potentially put minds at rest

        Hi guys sorry for no reply. I feel one of the problems is a friend of mine is vegan, be he is constantly putting images and videos and stuff on that basically shames meat eaters.

        Like I say I am very fussy with food and don't eat much veg (I'm trying to get better at this tho) I feel fine at the moment and I just don't understand why it comes on all of a sudden and then just goes.

        I do like to make sure that my meat products have come from somwhere that I know have looked after the animals. Just feels bit sad sometimes
