ever heard of Porphyria? you might have that. as for the craving of human blood, it's probably mental, not physical. hate to say you are not a vampire, but you are not a vampire. blood sucking terrors of the night with fangs that burn in the sun and hav super human speed, sleep in coffins and change into bats aren't real in the physical.
go to a doctor. if you are craving blood it's probably some form of Porphyria. if you refuse and get mad at me for disagreeing with you, at least promise you don't do anything stupid. you can get seriously sick by drinking blood, and diseases can be contracted as a result. stick to things like blood pudding or blood sausage.
i personally don't get what peoples fascination with vampires is. please explain this to me. i like werewolves, i don't go around claiming to be one, or wishing to be one. vampirism is a curse, it doesn't make you sexy special and awesome. what you have is probably a deficiency of iron, see a doctor to determine what exactly it is. if it's a blood fetish you have, just say that's what it is. sorry to snap, i really am, please, just read into Porphyria, and please talk to a doctor before consuming blood.
wew!! i really don't know what these people are thinking about claiming themselves to be one.. does blood really that delicious? is it more delicious than roasted chicken and the likes? wew!! i really don't think of any logical ways about claiming that they are monsters..
what's wrong about being a human?!? huh?!? these people are degrading the essence of therionick sorcery (astral vampyrism).. and such actions made the therionick magicians looks like fluffy bunnies.. (vampyric/therionick sorcery-->>book of the witch moon, nox umbra, the vampyre gates all are works of Michael Ford)..
sorry for the rant, but these are the reasons why some knowledge have been viewed as fake..
-->>to all who claim, before you say something and claiming that you are one, give us proofs of your existence.. posts your pictures (with fangs) and videos of your transformations.. but i doubt you can do these stuffs..

Modern psychology has come up with a diagnosis for those who believe that they are vampires, particularly those who claim to be sanguine vamps. It's called Renfield's Syndrome. Here's some information about the disorder:
"Sufferers of Renfield's Syndrome are overwhelmingly male. The disorder is typically sparked by an event in childhood in which the sufferer associates the sight or taste of blood with excitement. During puberty, the feelings of attraction to blood become sexual in nature.
Renfield's Syndrome typically follows three stages. In the first, autovampirism or autohemophagia, the sufferer drinks his own blood, often cutting himself in order to do so. The second stage is zoophagia, which consists of eating live animals or drinking their blood. Obtaining animal blood from a butcher or slaughterhouse for consumption also falls into this stage.
In the third stage, true vampirism, the sufferer's attention is turned to other human beings. He may steal blood from hospitals or blood banks, or drink blood directly from a living person. Some people with Renfield's Syndrome commit violent crimes, including murder, after entering this stage.
Though Renfield's Syndrome is newly named and has not yet been accepted into the DSM, it is not a new disorder. Noll noted apparent references to the disorder in German psychiatrist Richard van Krafft-Ebing's 1886 text Psychopathia Sexualis and speculated that Stoker may have been familiar with Krafft-Ebing's work."
So I guess the bottom line would be to avoid these folks who claim to be sanguine vamps since they may eventually become violent killers such as Jeffrey Dahmer.
so, they really are monsters in a sense.. thanks lark.. your information is yet a freaky one but sounds interesting.. thanks for sharing.. ;)
but the thing is, these people who did claim have associated these "so-called" sanguine vamps to magick and i really can't imagine why they do such role-plays (well one thing is maybe because of Hollywood shows about vampires-->>fantasy world)..

It's not really an opinion. Vampires do not exist in the physical realm. Period. If you really do feel a compulsion to consume blood, then go see a doctor. Please do not engage in activities that can harm either yourself or another person in a quest to satisfy your 'vampiric' desire.
