Life without leather

Since being diagnosed with my allergy things have become different in my life. I love shoes.
Love them!
And it seems nature is determined to keep my from my love.
I can no longer wear most leather shoes. I am currently wearing the one pair of non-leather shoes I own till my other pair comes in the mail. I am also wearing the only non-leather belt I own. I have to go buy some nylon ones.
To be honest I hate this.
I hate that to make my life better that I have to go out of my way and change things.
I hate that I seem to hate change.
Especially when this will make my life better.
I have noticed since no longer wearing leather that I have been feeling better. My energy is up, my mood is up and I wonder how much of my allergy had to do with my bad mood? I am sure to a certain extent the drain on my body from being constantly exposed to something it is allergic to can not be an easy thing for it to handle.
However now I have to spend way more money on leather shoes as vegetable tanning is much more expensive, and also a lot of shoes will have to be custom made for me and that is super expensive.
I don't really miss green felt, surgical cat guy, hide glue, wet cement, or any of the other things I am allergic to. I just miss my leather.
Good thing I do not have a leather fetish, my life will be hell.
Also I think I have to give up my leather pants.
Lucky me.

Limited footwear choices... that is cruel indeed, but hey, if you are feeling better, then that's amazing! So glad you are noticing a change!
