I wonder if he’s back on drugs. He looks gaunt. That would be tragic.
I have no idea, but I sure hope not, too.
BC has an addictive personality, as such he is at high risk for relapsing when stressed. He is also in danger of replacing one addiction with another. He’s trying to self-medicate to correct a neurochemical deficit that’s due to his EDS and his current diet.
It all boils down to scoring more dopamine. He doesn’t realize that he doesn’t feel well precisely because he’s malnourished. When people go vegan they initially feel better but this generally doesn’t last long. Eventually their body starts cannibalising itself, which is exactly what’s happening to BC.
