Does anyone wonder where the vampire myths come from? Are they really a myth? How does one become a one? What are the early warning signs of becoming a vampire?
Well I think I know where the myth comes from. It comes from ME well not me but M.E./C.F.S
Some of the early warning signs:
feeling weak and lethargic
a poisoned blood feeling
otherworldliness (also known as being forgetful and vague)
light sensitivity (unable to tolerate bright sunlight)
new intolerance of garlic and onions.
It’s the recent light sensitivity that tipped me off. You know something is seriously wrong when a visit to the psychologist is carried out in a dark room and the psychologist has had to download a torch onto her Iphone in order to read her notes.
In our last session she asked me what I was looking forward to, I was a bit stuck, what with the light sensitivity throwing a spanner in the works. Then I remembered coffee. My favourite thing to do when I am feeling up to it, is to lay on a grassy strip on the headland watching the surf while sipping a nice strong coffee with chocolate dusting.
Lately though I can only manage to get out at dusk and have to take care to turn my face away from the setting sun.
And yes sometimes there might be something predatory in my look as I check out the surfers.
So if you're a vampire and you're reading this, stop toying with me I am ready to cross over and join the club, this half way crap is not nice.
p.s. you had better be cute.
