I agree with the previous two feedbacks. Just take it one step at a time. To deal with the issues about being vegan when you are "visiting" or in any other social situations, I have learnt the following:

1. Share with people that you are vegan. Tell them why you are vegan. However don't get into an argument about it :)

2. Bring your own food if you are visiting. Let them try some of the delicious food that you eat!

3. Help cook.

4. Come after dinner (if you can), and share desserts/tea/coffee. Maybe bring along a vegan dessert for the family/friends to try.

5. Socializing is about the people, the conversations, and not about the food.

6. Invite them over to your place instead of going to theirs.

Take it easy and definitely take it one step at a time. You will in no time see many possible options.
