This has problems pertaining to dealing with "everyday" (everynight?) things for real vampires. It can get in a light vein, but I would prefer it to be mainly enlightening (jeez, can I quit with these day puns, already???) as to actual problems that vampires have to deal with on a day-to-day (aaarrrggghhh!!!) basis.


My problems with being a vampire:

  1. Living in Florida.
  2. Wearing a sweater and pants in the middle of summer because you don't feel like having a sunburn today. Not to mention being burned for two days and then on the 3rd day you are extremely pale again :(
  3. People at school.
  4. People at public places.
  5. People.
  6. Being too poor to afford sun glasses good enough to keep your eyes from getting itchy, red, and all around sore.
  7. Sitting in front of the computer and having to readjust your monitor so it doesn't blind you.
  8. Having friends who constantly have wounds and WON'T SHARE!
  9. Not being able to tell anybody who or what you really are because everyone is so religious that it could cause MAJOR problems for the rest of your exsistance in this small town.
  10. The only gothic people anywhere near you do more drugs than Bob Marley, Kurt Cobain, and Jimi Hendrix together in a marathon session.
  11. Drill practice.... sunshine.... 3-4 hours.... pain....
  12. Having to go to school where EVERY SINGLE CLASS has giant windows that pour in sunshine ALL DAY.
  13. People staring at you funny and grabbing small children and personal belongings when you walk by. (ok, maybe that one's a little funny :)
  14. Being at the mall and security thinking that you 'look like trouble' and making you sit outside for an hour while they figure out that you were just shopping for a present for your mom's birthday... and the party starts in 30 minutes.

This is all just basic stuff. I could go on for hours, but my eyes are starting to hurt!

I am almost in tears because I am frightened. I first looked at a site that I had stumbled across on a research project (I will do this because I love knowledge), and I read there were some similarities of the "symptoms" of vampirism. Fighting the idea that my life as I live it was similar or exactly the same, I thought of the stereotypes that the site said were not true, while trying to distance my similarities. I did this mainly because I was frightened as to being -- shit it's kind of hard to type, my hands a shaking. I looked onward to this site, thinking, "I'm not, I am not one", but I had to learn more, in order to try to distance. I was sure I would be able to; however, I found more similarities and exactness with this site.

Frightened, I pieced the puzzle together just six hours ago; things just fell into place. All the hardship, all the negetive emotions and my anger that developed with puberty, as did the "experimenting" with blood, a real want to do it. I seemed to be somewhat connected with the few that I took blood from. As a matter of fact, I was the only one in all cases that would take the blood, "drink" they called it.

My childhood was horrible. So I was different (I now know, as of last year, that I am part of the 5% of people that have the conceptual abilities that I do possess). So I was different and I suppose that gave the other kids permission, or something, to beat the crap out of me EVERY DAY from the time of 1st to 5th grades. Then, for the strange behavior I exhibited, my family had not only threatened mental hospitals, but they also put me there (my anger seemed more than they were used to). They shot me with Florezene that lowers your heart rate; they once shot me with 20cc of the stuff -- six times. But the stuff that really convinced me were three things: one, I was born with deformed irises (the thing that controls the amount of light that goes into the eye); two, I seem to take energy from people and don't know how to stop; and three, if there is blood I want it.

If you're interested, I thought up and can support the theory of what I call "blood wine" -- alcoholic blood, but there is one complication. I am sorry for giving my life story, but I feel alone; I can't turn to my friends (loving as they are, they won't understand, nor would I expect them to). I feel terrified of myself, really. If you could relay the simple thought of how frightening the "awakening" is (you may use any or all of this letter to justify the point), and also the thought of how people not of vampiric nature can be cruel and and destructive towards people of vampiric nature.

Thank you. I need to feel more comfortable (any advice would be nice). My e-mail is:

The other day at School, this stupid asshole comes up to me and says, "Hey, man, what's up with the sunglasses?"

I said, "Look, man, it's bright as fuck in this hallway."

He said to me, "Are you a vampire?" and I said, "Maybe I am. Why does it matter?"

And then this dumbass takes my sunglasses off, and as I open my mouth to protest, this nut drops my glasses and breaks them. So now I have to go without sunglasses for a few days and that sucks ass, my friend. But today was good: the lights went out for an hour, so I felt pretty good watching everyone fall over desks and ask me how I can do my work in the dark. I just told them, "Look, I guess I can see in the dark".

Gaaahhh! I've just "awakened", and I'm beginning to go NUTS!!!

  1. Your mother coming in to the computer room at night and saying, "Sweetie, why are you wearing sun glasses and have turned out the lights when it's nearly midnight? As a matter of fact, what are you doing up at this hour?"
  2. Not being able to go to certain festivals where you might meet other vampires/donors at night because "It's too dark to see any of the pretty displays".
  3. Looking forward to that trip across the country to a bunch of water parks, then remembering sun hurts.
  4. Being too afraid to shut the lights off after a horror movie, even though light hurts your eyes.
  5. Your mom telling you to "turn on the lights because reading in the dark is bad for your eyes".
  6. Getting up at ungodly hours of the day.
  7. That preppy who sits next to you and comments about your clothes and asks if you want to suck her blood.
  8. Dying to say "Yes", and longing for that first, long, actual drink of delicious, mouthwatering, energy-filled blood...
  9. The SUN! *Gahh!!! It burns! It burns!!!!!*
  10. "Normal" people!!!!!!!!!

I'm sure there's more to come, but I'm just a newbie. You can e-mail me at: or AIM me at: Kwan Yin000.

I'm almost always wearing my sunglasses wherever there is light and I'm still living with my parents (18 years old). They're always telling me to remove them because I'm gonna be blind or something, always forcing my eyes, blablabla... This just pisses me off. I still keep them on however, because I know that it's worst when I remove them. Personally, I don't enjoy my eyes burning.

Also, there was this time (not actually a problem, but funny) I went to rent Interview with the Vampire, and the guy who worked there used to be my neighbor. So in joking, he told me that I might meet one in my way back home. He didn't know how close he was to that being true.

Eerie America could very well be called The Fodor’s 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!
