Care-worker Julia 'hunts' for willing 'donors' -fellow vampire fans willing to let Julia drink from them -at her local occult and oddities store. During drinking sessions at her Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania home, Julia carefully cuts them with a pagan-like sterilised knife she designed herself. She believes that guzzling down the the lifeblood from others keeps her feeling young and vigorous -just like ageless vampires from cult movies. "When I feed off of a person and drink their blood I feel stronger and healthier," she said. "I know scientifically there's not a lot nutrition in blood, but maybe there's some value we haven't discovered yet. "I feel more beautiful than any other time when I'm regularly drinking."I'm also extremely healthy with no major health problems, and I have an abundance of energy all the time.
It does take all kinds to make the world go around. If she's not doing anything people aren't willingly helping with, then I don't see the harm. Many people do very odd things as others would define it. This isn't the oddest I've seen by far. In her life, maybe it does have the effect she says, by placebo or otherwise. Who is to say for sure? I wouldn't recommend the practice to anyone but at the same time, without having done it, who can say she's wrong or crazy?

Well i tend to live and let live-as long as people like this woman don't force other people into their weird practises,and it's only done with other Consenting adults-who is it hurting.
From the link i saw that apparently she is a good and loving mother.More damage are done to children all over the world every day by people looking and acting prim+proper as you please.Beware the ones you never see coming.
But when the pair had son Alexi, they decided something had to give and Donald vowed never to drink again.
"I gave up, so Julia didn't have to," he said. "We agreed that one of us would need to stop and focus on parenting full time."
"Julia still likes to drink, but she's also an amazing mother, and her children come first. She'd never let it stop her mothering her kids."
Daughter Ariel also worries about Julia's bloody habit. "I don't agree with it," she said.

Strange, but, people have all sorts of odd behaviors.
Bringing up the fact that shes a parent, to me, is irrelevant.
Shes not forcing her kids to like or accept her behavior, in fact, her daughter thinks it's weird. That alone tells me shes raised her kids well enough to distinguish the difference.
Of course the moral elite will still try and crucify her over this.
Live and let live is not a concept they seem to grasp.
