Problems Vampires Have, Page 24
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.
Some things have been going on for a few months now. I've been in denial about myself and got to the point where I did not want to be like this anymore, and I tried to forget about my being a vampire. It did not help because, though the thirst does not come out as often as it used too, it is still very hard to control. Every time I walk outside I end up frying in the sunlight and getting migraines again and hating the fact that I still have not found a donor!
I think that was a major kick up the ass, and helped to make me
realize that no matter what I do, I cannot be a normal person like anyone
else. I am what I am, and at the end of the day, I just have to get on
with my life as best I can.
Everybody here knows the main issues, like bloodlusting, sunlight, etc., but I'm going to share a little of my own special experiences.My friends like to call me "Vamp" because I always wear black and sunglasses, I never sleep, and I'm so pale that you can trace just about every single vein on my skin. Every single time they call me Vamp, I just laugh, because they never know how right they are. Only one of my closest buddies knows about me, because she's a vamp, too.
Another thing is that a couple guys say vamps should be killed because they are parasites or something stupid like that. They know I'm very gothic and I'm always reading morbid vampire books, so they do it just to piss me off. After a long while, I've just come to ignore it.
But one of the main things, is that I'm really active in sports and all. I'm constantly getting little cuts here and there, so I have to wear long sleeve shirts because I've been suppressing my need for blood lately, and if I see any, then I think about it, and I desperately crave it.

I awakened not too long ago and I had no idea of the real vampires and such; only about the Hollywood vampires. Unfortunately for me I had no idea I was awakening. All I know is that one morning I had a VERY hard time getting up, I was late for school since no one was home at the time (at least no one tried waking me up and thought I was dead as in some other cases.) That was the first thing that had happened to me.
As I went on with my life about a week later I started to get a big craving for blood and thought I was just going crazy. There is this one water fountain in my school that no one drank from because (I found out later) the water tasted like blood. Tthe other kids and some teachers would stare at me when I was drinking from that fountain. The kids at school suspect me of being a vampire although I'm not sure if they actually know what I am; but they aren't that very open minded and only believe in the fictional type of vamp. What makes it worse is that no one would ever want to be a donor for me since I am still pretty young.
Since I sleep mostly during the day and am very sluggish (not to mention I can barely stay awake and tend to not pay attention in class due to my drowsiness), my grades are slipping and my mom is giving all these "you aren't going to get into college" speeches, and I definitely do not want to say that I am a vampire for she would think I was crazy, give me an evil look, and yell at me more. And since I live in Hawaii there's all my friends trying to drag me to the beach with them. Yikes! What a nightmare that would be.
One more thing before I say bye...kids at my school annoy me so much with their stupid vampire jokes they tell when they think I'm not listening to them.

When I was first awakened I didn't think at all. First thing I did was run and tell my girl-friend (now ex-girlfriend), which made her start to think she was a vampire (or vampyre or whatever you like to call it), and she wouldn't stop bothering me about it. She hunted me down, and when I told her she's not a vamp, well, she lost it. She threatened to tell EVERYONE I knew about it. This wouldn't have been so bad, except at the time, I was going to this church that whenever something "satanic" or "evil" pops up, they go running for the pitchforks and torches. So I had to bribe her and string her along for nearly a year, until she moved. Until then, she insisted on my being her bloodsucking plaything and she wanted to bite ME! Normally, I don't mind humoring a girl, or being bitten, but both together, in this senario, were driving me insane! Not only that, she STILL thought she was sanguinarian, and that it was my blood that did it. I don't know about you, but this was NOT a pleasant situation. Moral of the story: keep your mouths shut or you'll be in the same boat as me.

for the past year almost, I have been telling myself that Im crazy and there are no real vampyres and Im just a violent kid. A few weeks ago my friend gave me the link to this site...she said it would help me with things. I had told her I had an unnatural want for blood...she had seen in class, when some boy cut his finger and it was bleeding, how I had to go to the other side of the room. Not because the blood creeped me out. The exact oposite, I wanted that blood and I had to stop myself from asking him if I could have some. I was afraid of myself....I wouldnt let myself think about it. I refused to believe that I was anything but just a messed up child, that I was anything like a vampyre. People call me a vampyre, however...Im naturaly pale and almost all my teeth are sharp, I get sun headaches very easily. I began to cut myself, in part because I hated myself, in part because I wanted the blood. I felt that it was ok for me to drink from myself; if I could satisfy my odd thirst by myself, I could forget it. The scariest thing I can think of now however, isnt being a vampyre, its a fear in the back of my mind that Im crazy or a fake somehow, somehow fooling myself into thinking this.

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!
