My posting might be different or be offensive.I am sorry if it is.Im a 28 yr old mother and wife.growing up I was tought how to hunt and clean the aniamls for food.I carried this on up until 3 wks ago.I was in the back of our property doing what I always did when my husband came back from a hunting trip and something inside me just clicked...You know, like i could not do this anymore.I felt an overwhelming guilt,uneasy and dirty for what i have done.I am a huge animal lover,saving all that I can.How could i kill and eat any animal.I decided that day to not eat meat again.My problem is I have raised my child on the same beliefs that i was raised on.My husband and child still eat meat and I am having problems making them understand that I just cant prepare the meat based meals for them.I have tried to get my family to try this new food,that I like alot.They will not try.afraid it will taste bad.I am however not a vegan,Still learning how to be vegan,i guess you would say.I would like to find someone in my area or just someone who is trying this for the first time or someone who has been vegan for awhile to talk with,maybe for support.Any info on what i can do to help my family understand me and info or advice on becoming a vegan will be helpful,if you can.thank you,shannon at SHYGIRLFLA1977@AOL.COM
