Default I feel like a vampire

It's weird to explain but I literally feel like a vampire through my veins. I have urges to drink human blood! Logically I know I can't be but I still feel as though I am! I have urges to slit my wrists and drink my blood. I tried to cut but the knife was blunt!

You should perhaps raise this with your doctor.

I agree this would be a good discussion for your doctor. Especially if you are tempted to cut yourself.

Thx for Ur replies I told my therapist. She just said : you're not a vampire' but that didn't make me change my mind. I did have a blood test s few weeks ago and my iron levels were fine but that is a good idea. I'd not thought of that! Maybe my levels have gone down! I'll try n make an appointment with my Dr and see what they say. Thx for your replies!

Hi Asphyxia, thx for the article it was really interesting! My Dr said my folic acid levels were low and she wasn't sure whether that would lead to the cravings. I ended up having a massive break down and now I'm under the crisis team and on diazepam. I'm having a mixed reaction from the crisis team. Some really listening but the one I spoke to this morning basically accused me of making it up!!! I'm devastated!!! Why would anyone make something like that up!!??

Unfortunately, from my experience of MH services in the UK, both in Wales and in England, accusing people of making things up is pretty standard. It really hurts though and I'm sorry that they're doing it to you too
