WAIW | Vegans Get Sick

Picture of a sad white man with a beard against a wall.

Although it wasn’t that long ago when I came down with a cold or flu on my way to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, apparently Mother Nature felt it was appropriate for me to get sick again over the last few days.

So, as I usually do when I get sick, I pretty much spent the first half of this week either in bed or on the couch. Luckily, I had a familiar dog face to keep me company the whole time. Well, her and Netflix.

Of course, now that Wednesday has rolled around, I couldn’t avoid work altogether, so I thought I should take this week’s Where Am I Wednesday episode to showcase the fact that vegans can be sick by recording myself as a sick vegan*.

Needless to say, I’m not exactly feeling or looking my best in this video, but the show had to go on, right?

* In case you haven’t already checked them out, I highly recommend that you read the last two issues of T.O.F.U. which dealt with both mental health and failing physical health and chronic illness for a better representation of the fact that vegans are not perfect and eating veggies doesn’t protect us from everything.
