Baha, I legitimately cannot imagine anything worse.

"One of the most significant negative habits we should be aware of is that of constantly allowing our mind to run off into the future. Perhaps we got this from our parents. Carried away by our worries, we’re unable to live fully and happily in the present. Deep down, we believe we can’t really be happy just yet—that we still have a few more boxes to be checked off before we can really enjoy life."

Josh, please somehow miraculously read this.
Hi Anon! This is difficult to answer without knowing what kind of vegan diet you follow & what food causes you pain. Firstly I would suggest getting a fruct-mal breath test done, so you know 110%. Secondly, your diet will heavily be based around your own personal fructose threshold (if this is indeed the issue), meaning, what food works for me may not work for you and visa versa. Fructose malabsorption impacts your bodies digestion of so many different food groups - Ie, I personally cannot eat lentils/beans/grains/dairy/wheat because of my fructmal and they aren’t generally thought of as fructose. So i’d definitely recommend figuring out if you are in fact having issues digesting/absorbing foods/sugars and then work with a nutritionist/dietician/naturopath from there.. They’ll be able to help you with with an elimination plan that will enable you to test your tolerance levels etc Good luck with everything - feel free to message through any other questions you may have!
