This is a must share! Part of managing CRPS is managing your life and working out how to live around CRPS.
Not only do I suffer from CRPS but dare I say it, I’m a vegetarian. There I said it please dont think any less of me. lol. Anyway I was just thinking back an a funny thought occurred to me recently that is to do with both CRPS and my choice of diet. There are many people out there who have misconceived ideas of how my not eating flesh effects their life and throw idiotic, generic and un-thought of remarks my way as if I have never heard them before. Anyway my pet hate is this one, probably because I hear it the most.
Annoying Person: How about all of the vegetables that you are murdering, what about their suffering and pain?
Me: Well actually vegetables do not feel pain because research has shown that they do not have a central nervous system and therefore can not feel pain.
Now normally Annoying Person would be stumped on this one but all of a sudden I find myself thinking “THOSE LUCKY BASTARDS!” lol I wish i didn’t need a central nervous system! But then some Vegetarian would probably feel justified in eating me!
