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.


Ok, well, as a psi-vamp, I've noticed there are a lot of problems here for blood vamps, but not very many for psi-vamps. Anyways, here are MY rants:

1) Feeling completely drained, and NEEDING to touch someone, just for a few seconds, to feed.

2) Knowing the second you tell any of your friends your a vamp, they'll freak, and taunt you.

3) Freaking bright lights!!!!!

4) Parents saying, "Go to bed soon", and it's only 10 pm, and you can only sit there doing nothing!!!

5) Feeding, and then an hour later, being drained.

6) Some of us may NOT display some of the signs a blood vamp does, and living in fear that we are only pretenders.

7) Migraines.... they left after I quit caffeine cold turkey, and now they appear if I don't feed....

8) Needing to sleep in school; only it's a small school, so the teachers notice and get on your case!

For a few years, I've been trying to figure out who I am, and I've come up with answers. Being 15, almost 16, I know life as a teenager is difficult. Sometimes, you're too afraid to admit whether you are or are not a vampire. In my experience, some symptoms have not manifested, but this may be for several reasons. I'm a psi-vamp, and with my history, no wonder! Anyways, to the point -- It's REALLY difficult to face your fears. I've had experiences with someone online who is probably NOT a vampire. I KNOW how hard it is to be a psi-vamp. I mainly feed through touch, but how do you say to someone, "I need to touch you to drain some of your energy. Is that ok?"? And then facing yourself saying, "I'm not really a vamp, I only have a few symptoms..."

Ok, here's some advice: FIND someone to be a center of hope for you. I was born low birthweight, small size, and prematurely, by c-section. I've spent most of my time with my mom, who is a blood vamp, and she has become my strength, my foundation. This can REALLY help, just have faith!!!! :)

I live in Arizona and of course I'm lucky enough to live in a house where the blinds are S-H-I-T so it's constantly pouring sunlight into my eyes. And when there are people around I get so pissed and crawl into a quiet, "dark" corner where nobody can see/piss me off. Also, the goddamn loser who built my school HAD to make it mostly outside, with barely any shade so everytime I'm changing classes I'm virtually walking blindly with my eyes half open and my friends are on my back for putting on such a "show" when ever I'm out in the light, I just wanna yell, "WELL THEN, YOU TRY BEING A F*CKING VAMPIRE!"

Also, at lunch the damn teachers make us sit outside so I have to sit on our picknick tables facing the wall so the sun doesn't blind me! Oh, and let's not forget my family constantly whining and asking me why I don't ever go to the pool with them or why I'm always so moody! GRRRRRRR! Sometimes I wish I had fangs. >:(

Other Stuff, Buggin' the Crap Outta Me:

  1. Having to constantly close this page on my computer so my mom doesn't see it, wonder why the hell I'm on a vampire page and feel the need to "take action" (a.k.a. send me to a therapist)
  2. My friends bitching about why I always put on such a "show" when I'm in sunlight
  3. My goddamn Spanish teacher bugging me about why I'm always "half asleep" in her f***ing 9am class
  4. Friends griping about crap like who's going out with who, and I'm worrying about not "vamping-out" in front of anyone
  5. People thinking vampires are evil minions of the devil who fear garlic, turn into bats, have shrinkable fangs, and die in sunlight. Oh and don't get me started on movies...
  6. Eating lunch outside!!
  7. Bright, flourescent lights in school
  8. People asking me why I squint inside the school building (see #7)
  9. DAYTIME SCHEDULES! (I think mankind needs to follow the example of our fine, feline friends and go NOCTURNAL!!)
  10. People looking at me funny when I scoot over to another row on a public bus because the tinting on the windows is peeled off and it's bright inside even when it's overcast
  11. Parents giving me Looks when I ask for raw steak for dinner because I STILL haven't found a donor...
  12. Parents demanding I go swimming in 105º weather with them (can you say SIZZLE?!?!)
  13. Loud people/kids EVERYWHERE!

One time when I was in high school, my art class was working on a carving project. This girl accidentally cut herself, so I ask, "How bad is it?" She runs over to me with a smile and sticks her bleeding finger in my face to show me. I couldn't believe she did that; it was like waving a piece of meat in front of a starved wolf! The agony!

Another time I was having cravings really bad, I had the shakes and all, so I laid down on my bed. My mother came into my room and asked, "What's wrong?" She felt my forehead and sais, "You feel hot." I didn't know what to tell her; I simply didn't say anything.

Living in AZ with 110 degree weather in long summers doesn't help my not being able to tolerate the heat. And the sun is so bright I get headaches without sunglasses.

Scaring people accidentally because I'm quiet when I approach them is a bad habit of mine.

Working a shift at sunset while having to work close to large windows is dandy.

Having people refer to you as being Vampire because you dress a little Goth, but they don't know how right they are.

Having people look at you weird when you say, "I don't use bandaids when I get a cut, I just suck on it till it stops bleeding."

Eerie America TV Series

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!
