Well, that depends what kind of vampire you refer to. There are different kinds that feed off of different things. Sanguinarians from blood,
psi(onics) from life force, energy and psychic abilities, emphatics from emotions, tantrics from sexuality and elementals from the powers of nature.
The so-called "vampire illness" porphyria doesn't make you a vampire at all but constructed the origin for the Hollywood vampires along with the
gothic novel epoch form the midth of 18th century on till the end 0f 19th (Stoker, Dostojewski, Le Fanu, Polidori etc.)
There is really not much that differenciates a vampire from a so-called human because a real vampire is not immortal but human living, means lives as
long as any human perhaps a few years longer. They can have a family, go for work, eat garlic, sleep in beds during night, are "day-walkers" and
support the sun. They won't die to be out but regard it as an annoyance.
Now the difference between a vampire and a regular human is that vampires need something in addition to the regular food to stay healthy, means they
won't die without having blood, life force etc. It is not need to sustain their lives. But when not feeding properly cause reactions and a bit
changed character means weakness, outbreaks of sweat, uncontrollable reactions and verbality, fever, trembling etc.
It is difficult to describe to someone who never felt it but for the "everybody": It is similar to an addict (drug, alcohol whatever). The
difference is that you can give up the addiction but cannot give up your "hunger".
As I see, you refer to energy vampires, means psionics. Most vampires are called negative influences whatever. I have read an article about protection
against psychic vampires. You should learn practising meditation. I really caught an outbreak of laughing, because first thing I psychic vampire
learns during the awakening phase is how to meditate correctly and astral projection/travelling. So, that's neutralizing the whole thing.
P.S.: Real vampirism is no life-style, has nothing to do with role-playing, Twilight stories or blood fetishism. Lately vampirism has been
acknowledged as a religion. The was a great step. Before, a vampire was mostly considered as a myth or legend and thus doesn't exist. So we even had
the right to "breath".....because I was still there but I hadn't to exist. That sounds incomprehensible but it had been so. So, I have to say some
way thanks to clerical institution even if I cannot forgive them their narrow-mindedness during the "burning times", and in some place still today.
But it's o.k. to me.
A like to stay anonymous for the moment. But I will see if someone want to contact me to give more details. I'm myself a hybrid vampire (20%
Sanguinarian and 80% psionic) and use to feed on life force and psychic abilites as sometimes elemental stuff like from waterfalls and storms. Very
scarcely I feel a craving for blood.
