So recently I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis otherwise known as painful bladder syndrome , basically it's like having a ton of canker sores in your bladder and drinking orange juice. Well the biggest thing they tell you when diagnosed is diet is our biggest defense to relieving the pain and it's absolutely true. But in a world were everything is so processed I found I couldn't eat anything I wanted to or used to..... until a vegan friend of mine started making me some vegan meals. I have never had so much relief from my symptoms. So that is how I decided that I would have to eat the vegan way for the rest of my life, But I believe in the long run truly that going vegan will change my life and my kids life as well and all for the better.
