Re: Hello ^,-,^
The spelling with a Y is just an older form of the word. If I wanted to go far enough back, I would claim to be "upyr", but aesthetically I dislike it, but I like "vampyre" for some reason.
I have had hormone levels tested, blood tests for anemia and other disorders, tests for sun allergy, etc. I also psychologically sound according to a counselor I had, or at least if I had any problems it wasn't related to being a vampyre, or any other type of otherkin. I've always been a "dark" person, had a fascination with vampyre myths and blood, grew up (for lack of a better word) very preditory. I don't feel like a shapeshifter or were-anything, nor demon, nor angel. I'd go through all the other things I might be but don't quite fit, but it would take a while.
Thanks for the welcome.
