Real-life 'vampire' addicted to blood

Doctors in Turkey have detailed the case of a man who exhibited all the traits of a real-life vampire.
[!gad]The 23-year-old individual came to the attention of doctors when he developed a strong addiction to blood, an obsession that would lead him to slice in to parts of his own body with a knife so that he could collect and drink it. His addiction eventually progressed to the point where he had need to stab and bite people to get his 'fix' and even relied on having his father obtain packs of blood from a blood bank to help quench his insatiable thirst.

The unusual case was published in a recent report released by the Journal of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics. Doctors concluded that a series of traumatic and violent events in the man's life were likely to have been the trigger of his strange obsession and that it is the only known case of vampirism they had ever come across.
In a chilling case report, doctors in Turkey have described what they claim to be a real-life vampire with multiple personalities and an addiction to drinking blood.

I bet he even sparkles in the sunlight "Raises eyebrows" lol i just realized I typed there blood.. ment *Their own blood.. maybe. dnt remember. You right though... If its what the author of the vampire story wants them to have/do, then it certainly makes it true.. In the story, yes. I think the title of the article is misleading, should be more like, Man Cuts Self, Consumes Own Blood. Or Man Loses it After Experiencing Multiple Tragedies. But, I guess that's not as interesting.

Part from the mental aspect there are other dangers that comes with this "hobby",... Blood is the carrying source for diseases like HIV, HPV, CMV, and hepatitis.

Vampires CAN have blood and they CAN drink blood if that's what the author of the vampire story wants them to have/do. Because they are fictional. Not real. This. yes. Thanks lava lady.

Maybe you should shoot the Turkish doctors a quick email to educate them of these specifics so they can strike 'vampire' off their list of diagnoses. Good idea . . . done!

If he is not 'Undead' he isn't a "real life vampire". He is just a loony who likes drinking blood?
