Im a wreck!!!!
Ive been vegetarian for 5-6 years now and last night i went out to eat diner with friends, i orderd some pasta and a side of fries(im not vegan so there was cheese and sour cream) with jelepeno peppers and after i scarfed down my meal i noticed disgusting little brown chunks at the bottom of my dish....... BACON!!!!!!
My friend who used to be a vegetarian calmed me down at the scene but i cant handle myself i feel horrible!!! i debated whether to go waste my $30 meal by forcing myself to throw up but i decided against it (due to the fact i would look rediculous on front of my friends leaving to go throw up) now i dont know what to do i have dead rotting pig flesh in my system!!!
I need Advice!!! should i do a fast or a colon cleanse??? take a laxative??
Then, I'm not a religious person but I say a prayer for the animal. Like a special blessing for the particular pig who died for the bacon. It doesn't undo the damage, but I think it helps. That's just my thing, not for everyone probably.
Don't freak out too much though. It sucks but it happens.
I suppose my belief is that being vegetarian is not someone who does not eat meat but rather someone who chooses not to eat meat; if you have eaten meat accidentally you are not compromised at all. Do not let it worry you, you have been a devoted vegetarian for 5-6 years, the accidental consumption of bacon bits on a single occasion can not affect that fact.
Please don't let this get at you, it's nothing to worry about. You're living an alternative lifestyle in a not so ideal world, things like these are unavoidable and it would be unhealthy and unfair to punish yourself for it.
