What’s that old saying? “A smart man learns from his mistakes. A wise man learns from other people’s mistakes.” Something like that. I’ve never considered myself wise, and rarely has anyone else ascribed to me that attribute. If I have ever, at any point, done or said anything wise, however, I assure you that I’ve done a couple’a hundred stupid things to balance the scales. Anyway, I’ve learned the hard way that, if I don’t have firsthand knowledge about something, I should probably keep my mouth shut about that something. (There are limits, it goes without saying, but in general this is a wise practice.)
I am not a Sanguivore. I do not consume blood. I have never felt the need or desire to do so. There are people who have, who do, who maintain that they suffer physical ill effects if they do NOT. As I have no firsthand experience on the subject, I will keep my mouth shut and let others speak. I DO have questions. I know you do, too. For example, how do Sanguivores go about getting the blood they consume? How much do they require? Is there a limit? How much is too much? Are there safety issues involved in procuring blood? How should it be accomplished? Check out my friend Alexia’s website for the answers to some of these questions, the latter in particular. Whether you are a struggling Sanguivore or merely curious, you’ll find it worthwhile reading.
