Excited to be here!
Hello! My name is Joelle. I am vegetarian and have been trying to transition to a raw food lifestyle for the past few months, (anonymously) soaking up the wealth of information and inspiration everyone on this forum has to offer.
While I would love to lose a little bit of weight and see my skin clear up, what's most important to me is feeling energetic, positive, and less stressed. I've suffered from anxiety and severe depression for most of my life, but I feel relief from both when I stick to a simple plant-based, mostly raw diet. I don't think I've been fully raw for more than a couple of days at a time thus far, but I'm committed to making the full transition.
I'm absolutely thrilled to finally be a part of this community and I'm looking forward to many exchanges with all of you :)
Glad that you have shown yourself. I am excited to have you be part of this wonderful site. You are with good company here.
lots of nice people.
I have also suffered from major depression since I was around 3, also PTSD. The Raw life suits me well. I am off my meds.
when I do feel depressed I have been able to catch it and pull myself out.
Greetings!! I wish you the best of rawesome health!!
