Tips for Donors
The term "donor" is used to describe someone who provides blood (or pranic energy) on their own free will without being coerced. It is important that donors recognize any situations that may place them in danger or threaten their health.
A donor's ability to exercise good judgement and common sense is essential when considering whether or not to donate. New donors should familiarize themselves with how to spot a blood drinker (or energy feeder) who could potentially cause them emotional or physical harm. When thinking about whether or not to donate, please keep the following points in mind.
There are several myths and legends regarding vampires. Hollywood plays on these myths and legends, and often cashes in on them. Vampirism is often surrounded with fantasy for the purposes of entertainment. Unfortunately there are those who take the fantasy too far. More often than not, these individuals are harmless but it is integral that a donor watch the blood drinker (or energy feeder) for any signs that he or she may be "lost in la la land".
Signs That Someone May Be Lost In "La La Land"
Sometimes donors are faced with wanting to find someone to donate to, but not really knowing where to start. The internet is the most obvious choice because it enables people to connect regardless of locale or other obstacles. However, anyone considering meeting someone from the internet should exercise EXTREME CAUTION. Sometimes gothic or fetish events are the ideal place to meet a blood drinker. This is not because all of them like blood. In these subcultures, it is often easier to bring up the topic of vampirism and it is not considered taboo. People are more open-minded to things that may be considered "weird" by mainstream society. That being said, vampiric individuals come from all walks of life and a good majority of them do not look like the stereotypical vampire. Stay alert and learn to recognize opportunities for talking about vampirism. A safe opportunity may present itself by discussing vampire fiction or movies. It is not too difficult to get a feel for how the person views vampirism. If they do not seem interested or if they seem horrified, nothing is really lost as no one came right out and said anything directly.
It is important for donors to practice good judgement and common sense consistently. If something does not feel right, leave the situation. Keep in mind that knowledge is power and stay informed. Never compromise on safety or health issues.
Eerie America TV Series
Eerie America could very well be called The Fodors Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. I read some in-depth information about the show and saw the promo, and from what I can tell, this will be an absolutely AWESOME series if they can get it off the ground. (I'm actually praying they will.) Let others know and see who can help. This is something that should happen! Let's pull together and make it so!
