Life's Not Too Bad...
I read the article "An Open Letter to Anyone Who Would Wish to Become a Vampire", and I don't know what to think about it. Yes, maybe life is harder for us, especially for the burning sun and the blood craving, but I haven't seen yet an article that speaks about the Vampires in a little bit more optimistic way.
I am 17, and I live in Mexico, my name is Israel, and I have been dealing with this since I was 12. At the beginning, it was true hell. The sensation of being completly out of energy, my sunburns (they weren't especially common, but they were especially painful). I have only had one donor in all my life, so by need, I became Psi-Vamp, too.
Maybe I didn't have those problems because I have always been a very lonely person, dedicated to meditation and thinking about life and such things. I was able to concentrate well, and become focused quickly, with little effort, and so I developed a way of controlling things with my will. I am used to feeding from the energy that everybody else doesn't need, so nobody gets sick or hurt when I feed. Emotional Vampirism is incredible useful to feed.
Of course I've got my own troubles, like the migraines, and a very weird trouble that I learned how to control with a lot of effort, but is one of the incredibly few things that I fear: I am afraid to be angry, to feel wrath. Maybe I am not the only one, but when I get angry, I start to feel how it invades all my body, my mind, my soul, my thoughts. I start losing control over myself; I lose all sense of pity, pain, mercy... I just want to go and hit, kill, and feed from the person that started the anger. I don't want to hurt anybody, because my guilt would be very heavy, but I must always fight my urges. It could be said that I lose all sense of respect for life. But, at least until now, I have been able to keep it under control.
Perhaps I have been very, very lucky: my best friends know that I am a Vampire and don't see me weird, or treat me different. One of my friends is a Vampire too. The girl that I love, Edith, is almost as weird as I am, and don't have fear of almost anything, so I feel very well with my world. My hands and the skin of my head had become stronger to the sunlight and the light, do hurt my eyes, but I solve it in a very practical way: I walk with my eyes closed or almost closed all the time, and when I can get to a shadow or I cover my eyes with my hands to see where I am walking. Obviously, all the other troubles still remain (except the gastric, but that might be because I am almost vegetarian), but one learns how to deal with them.
I just write to tell the others that not everything is bad; we are different, so much more different than other people, but I prefer being a vampire rather than being an idiot, like many of those who surround me. Of course, I won't wish this life for anybody who isn't a vampire, but for those who already are, I just said that everything is gonna be cool. You're are not alone, at least no more.

Something that all awakening vampires should know is that they must ONLY tell those with an open mind. I learned this the hard way. And they also need to not be scared to admit what they are to themselves. It's all right to talk to really close and open-minded friends about awakening. I did, and found out one of my friends was awakening, as well, and two other ones are awakening right now. But they should only tell someone they trust and who is open minded.
And donors... I personally was way to shy to ever ask if I could feed off donors who said I was more than welcome to. DON'T DO THIS! IT WILL DRIVE YOU INSANE. All I could think about was the blood I let go; it was so horrible it brought me to tears.
Also a question is, where is a good place to feed? I mean, you can't just cut someone in the middle of the hallway and start drinking their blood. (I speak from experience...it's not a good idea.) Find somewhere private, or at least only around people who know what you are, or are open minded about it. A car is a good place as well, if you can't get to their house or they can't get to yours. I hope I helped a little.

My concern is the difficulty in a relationship. When you vamp out or have a very strong thirst and lose control and almost hurt your boyfriend/girlfriend, it can be a large strain on the relationship and your emotions. I made a mistake in revealing what I am to a girlfriend, and she did not react well; the relationship continued but it eventually came to an end, in part, because of what I am. The fact of the matter is that you should be wary of who you tell, and make sure your partner, for lack of a better word, is understanding in that you do not mean any harm. Vamp outs can be uncontrollable and it is not your fault that you have them; you will learn to control them with time.

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!
