I also think people can get ‘stuck’ in their awakening while their immune system adapts and the dangers of this are triggering auto immune disease. I have it on good authority that consistent exposure to Sang blood can help finish the process.
I’ve had my blood consistently drank over a month and also accidentally one time, and they appeared to be far more ravenous with what seemed to me like behaviour changes. I’ve had other direct experiences with this of late.
As strange as it sounds, it tends to just happen with me. I had someone at work recently identify me as a sanguivore when I had made no comments of the sort and approached me wanting to know more. My live-in donor is my former husband. I’ve had co-workers, lovers, friends, all willing to donate. Some want to do it for sexual reasons. Others want the experience of something they never thought they’d ever encounter. Some, for better or worse, want that connection with you. It’s useful to test the waters by broaching a subject such as vampires and seeing how they react. Potential candidates may say things like ‘they have a complicated history with vampirism’. Once I’ve trusted someone enough, tested the waters and come out, most offer to donate. I had 6 donors in my old city. I’ve one live-in and two offered in my new city.
I think people can be deliberately ‘awakened’ by drinking sang blood. As for turning, I haven’t seen enough, but yes I do think it is possible. I don’t think all blood drinkers are the same, and only certain ‘types’ may be able to do so.
