Hello vegans of veganforum! I’ve been working at a fast food place for almost exactly a year now. I initially got hired before I was vegan, and have been slowly going vegan for the last year. Have been cold turkey for seven months now, and as I get more and more into animal rights and animal ethics, I’m finding it really really hard to work there every day. I’m getting another, better job very soon most likely, but I’ve got about three or four months left at this one before I can leave. I’m one of the only trained backline workers, which means I’m handling meat 6-8 hours a day, 5 days a week. And it’s really starting to wear on me - I want to attend Save events and do protests and help animals, not help mangle their corpses all day. Quitting isn’t really an option - I need those couple more months of saving to pay for school and starting over at a new job is not a viable option as it would both burn bridges(bad for future references) and lower my pay as I’ve had raises since I started working. Plus, I don’t think anyone would understand my reasons for quitting as the people around me have no problems with meat and think I’m being overly sentimental for feeling like this. So basically, any suggestions for how to cope with this situation? Or if not, maybe just some support? Handling meat didn’t used to bother me, but now it makes me feel sick, and I can really only think about the sentient beings it came from. I know this is a good thing in the long run for my transition, but getting through these last couple of months is going to be brutal for my mental health.
