Real-Life Vampires & Physical Medical Conditions

VitruvianMan-LeonardoDaVinci-c1490If you personally self-identify as a ‘real vampi(y)re’ please take a moment to answer the following question (divided for both Primary Practicing Sanguinarian (Blood Feeding) and Psychic (Energy Feeding) Self-Identified Vampires).
If you identify as sexual, pranic, elemental, hybrid, eclectic, adaptive, living, or other identifiers sometimes ascribed to vampirism please choose the the category which best encompasses your PRIMARY feeding method: Sanguinarian (blood consumption, physical fluid-blood exchanges, etc.) or Psychic (psi/chi/qi/life energy feeding or manipulation, metaphysical, spiritual, etc.).  Please note that the condition options provided in the poll(s) below do not represent an exhaustive list; only a sampling based on longstanding observational and precedent data.

VCN POLL CLOSED NOVEMBER 12, 2014 – ANALYSIS BELOW & AT LINK:

Note:  Sanguinarian and Psychic responses to the VCN poll indicated no statistically significant differences in condition reporting and thus are combined as Total Self-Identified Vampire Response Count (TVC).
