Problems Vampires Have, Page 25
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.
i'm 18 and in the throws of awakening. I felt like I was a vamp since kindergarten. I had red-tinted sunglasses because Iwas photosensitive, watched vamp shows (anyone remember The Little Vampire?). I believed I was one, though a tv/movie one (no one to tell me otherwise), and I'm generally hypersensitive (and always have been). I can't tell my parents because the last time I was on this site, my dad found it in the history and took me to the child/adolecent health department at a local hospital. I can't tell anyone because they'll mock me; and I'm scared to tell my girlfriend (my first one, of about 5 weeks) because she might freak out and leave me. She knows that I'm goth, which is a good cover for now, but I'd love it if she could be my donor.
if there are any vamps in the Toronto area (Toronto, Ontario, Canada), please email me at ginshi13 (at) hotmail.com .

My problem has everything to do with my type of vampirism and it it the reason for my lack of normal friends. By my type of vampire I mean I am no blood sucker, so to speak. My problem is of a psychic nature. I feed on pranic energy from others around me. By reading about some of the other vampires on this website I am noticeably different. But unfortunately not so different in that I do suffer most symptoms as you do. I could suck blood for the life energy I need but I choose not to as it is very hard to get away with in this era without being dragged off to a psychologist.
My pranic feeding makes it hard to find a social scene as I have always fed with and without my knowledge to most who are around me. This causes them to "feel" bad things about me or my "vibes". Also, my hunger for life force is too overwhelming for most as I become very attention-seeking, emotional, bossy, and I cause confrontations. I do these things to make the energy flow faster. Cravings are very hard to deal with and because of this I have a very boring social life. Loneliness is my problem. I would like to get some advice from someone on how to deal with cravings effectively. If it's possible, I'd also like a way that doesn't involve eating all the food in the house. It would also be good to hear from others with the same problems as mine and a person who has a need for a pranic energy like me.

Hi. I'm gonna get to the point: I'm HIV positive and I think I'm a psy-vamp. My doubt is: Do I harm people when I draw enery from them (intentionally or not, I can't control it very well yet...), or vice-versa? What can I do to stop this? I've been feeling very nervous and inseccure about this. I'm having a lot of trouble dealing with it. Can you help me? I'm afraid I might harm ppl's health because of my disease. Of course blood drinking has been out of the question since I knew I had HIV...I miss that too.
Please, since this is a very touchy subject, I'm going to ask you not to reveal my name. I would like to find vamps with the same problem. Thank you for your time and discretion.

[Sanguinarius Note: I am looking for a forum or forums which are oriented towards vamps with AID/HIV and other diseases; if I don't find any, I'll probably create one on the Vampiric Community Message (& Support) Board. Whatever the case, I'll post an update here.]
I go to school in a relatively small town in the mountains of southern California -- no more than 2000 people -- so news spreads really fast, especially when my entire high school consists of no more than 500 people. I learned this much to my detriment after I finally cracked one day and told my sister (she's not really my sister but I've known her since we were 6) in a lengthy and very graphic note during history class. Unfortunately, her shadow decided to tag along when we spent the rest of the day in the library talking, and hung around even after we both had summarily dismissed her. Anyways, she heard a few key words like bloodlust, thirst, desperate, etc. At lunch, less than two hours after she left the library pale and shaking, the entire school seemed to know (I kid you not!) and everyone was looking at me like I had painted myself in blood and was running up and down the quad naked. I walked halfway to the cafeteria and someone hissed 'devil' at me. Why this particular moron insisted on insulting me I do not know, since my wrath is legendary, but I spun on my heel and had to consciously restrain myself from beating the person into a bloody smear on the concrete. His face went white and he hasn't even looked in my direction since. I forfeited lunch that day and spent the last two periods of hell sucking on the eight perfect crescents I had gouged into my palm.

You think it's hard being a vampire in high school? Try being 13 and a vampire! I mean you're not old enough to get a donor because you're too young for people to believe you! Right now my eyes are very sensitive; and since it's summer we've been having gym outside! I had a pair of welding glasses but some guys broke them. I felt like making them my donors but thought better of it.
I've been put by a girl who is totally accident prone and is constantly cutting herself. One time she got this huge papercut, so when she went up to get a band-aid, I swiped my finger across the blood and shoved it in my mouth. It was heaven, -- my first blood in literally a month.
No one knows about me -- I feel so alone... My aunt was a vampire but she died in a car accident. I first found out I was a vampire when my friend fell and cut open her knee. I was mesmerized by the blood and couldn't help myself... My aunt told me I was a vampire and said she'd help me get through all the hard times, but then she died.

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!
