Anonymous said: Hello Maggie Rae!!! i have a question about taco bell. i am a vegan. and also anaphylaxis to dairy products. i cant eat out at places. like McDonalds (although i do no. i just dont like them) and a vegan restaurant in the next town over. i was wondering if a) do you think it would be safe for me to? b) what is usually vegan?? Okay i really love you and your blog!! xoxo c:
Ooh, that is tough. If you are that allergic to dairy then I honestly wouldn’t recommend you eat there. It maaaaaaaayyybe might be okay if you let them know beforehand that you are very allergic to dairy, but I know that people with those types of allergies can react even if a little tiny piece of what they’re allergic to makes its way into the food, and even if the preparer is extra careful, I’m not sure if they can guarantee that that won’t ever happen. If you do find a t-bell that is up to your allergy specs, I always get the fresco bean burrito + rice and guac or potato and guac. But theoretically you can order any vegetarian item without the dairy and it would be vegan. Some people really like the seven layer burrito minus dairy add guac. And I think you can do a vegan version of the crunchwrap supreme (maybe?) but I’m not sure. Just be careful, and if in doubt I would say skip it. Instead, buy Taco Bell’s refried beans, some red mild taco sauce, some guac, and fry up and season some potatoes and you can have your own vegan burritos at home! Yum!

I had a couple people just use my inbox to vent last night and I want to tell you that is ALWAYS okay, if you just need to be heard you can always come here and talk and I won’t even publish it if you don’t want
To the girl with the ED that wishes her family didn’t know: you are so brave, I know it hurts. Sometimes people’s reactions to an ED hurts as much as the ED does. I think it would maybe be beneficial for you to find a support group locally or even online, so you can have a place to talk safely where people won’t dismiss your problems or react in the wrong way.
For the other situation (you know who you are): you are not “easy,” you should not be ashamed. You were coerced. Absence of a yes means no, no matter who it is. My suggestion would be to honestly tell your parents and then the police. I know you are scared but what he did to you was wrong. However I know that the situation is complicated so I understand not wanting to report him as well. Ultimately, the choice is yours, and no one can make that call but you.
