Oddities about real vamps

After reading through some of these replies, I noticed more criticism about typing and spelling than about the content of the post. Many Vampyres / Upyreshi have health conditions that mock medical conditions that humans have such as ADHD, yet the medications for that problem does not help. We have what seems to be chronic fatique but all the weight loss pills, ADHD drugs, not to forget the illegals do not give us physical healthy "get up and go." And the same lack of energy makes for a mind that races with hundreds of ideas a minute complimented with clouded brain when it comes to putting these ideas into action. We tend to prefer the company of our own kind to that of family, and late in life awakenings, especially post marriage often ends in divorce. There's a great deal of baggage that comes with being a real vampire; the younger a person realizes who and what they are, the better they adapt. It also depends on the individual's upbringing, personal belief systems, etc.

No two Houses or individuals are the sam

It doesn't matter to me if mundane society believes we are real or not, but there is no "turning like in the movies" instead, we are born with the genetic capacity or predisposition for vampirism, defined as needing external energy sources for supplementing the inadequate amount of life force that our bodies do not make. If you factor in research on parallel humanoid races, seriously royal bloodlines, junk DNA, etc. That's a great place to start. No two vampires / vampyres / Upyr / Upir are alike and that is defined by our inherited genetics as our parents had to have active genes or at the very least dormant genes with the capacity for awakening, which does not always happen.

Am here to give my testimony

vampires are real

im a vampire and all vampires are diffarent i can go in the sun and go to churchies i can go bear garlick all vampires are diffarant ok

Some people are fools.

I honestly don't understand some of you. Vampirism is a curse. It is a Blight upon you're very soul and being. It's not meant to be Romanticized. You are damned with an endless hollow feeling, always empty and never satisfied. Vampires do not in fact burn in the usual sense, but are more prone to irritation of the skin and sunburn. They don't fear religious deities or symbols, holy water isn't some magical mixture that burns them. The fangs are generally a lie, while some do have a nice set of canines they are not a requirement. Garlic as a ward is just silly. While they do have more powerful and efficient immune systems, they aren't invincible. I am genuinely sickened by all of the children on here claiming to be one or wishing to be turned. If you're bit by a vampire, you're dead, no living creature can sustain a loss of blood that great. They aren't immortal, though they generally age very well and appear more youthful. Honestly people, don't make fools of yourself.

To those who claim themselves as vampires: All your answers are not consistent with each other, you know..*sigh*.. Others say they don't burn in the sun while others say they burn after 3 hours or so and etc.. If you're going to lie then at least try harder. Also, does favoring dark colors have anything to do with being a vampire? I dont think so.. And guys, what's with the-'please, please change me!!' comments?? Could you not just be thankful that you're alive? Anyway, in my opinion - vampires are demons, I guesse..?

not real

If their is such a thing ...it is a demon..& wishes to posses ur souls...be careful what u wish for.. I pray u find Jesus...for he loves u so much he gave his life...so u & I would be reconciled to God...God Bless u all
