|I am SphynxCatVP, generally just “SphynxCat” or “Sphynx” in conversation. I’m over 40 and have been involved in the online vampire community since 1998, having been a channel operator in the IRC channel #sanguinarius on Dalnet pretty much since it’s inception, and still am to this day.
My website, SphynxCat’s Real Vampires Support Page, was originally an outreach of my work in the channel, as a place to put answers to topics frequently brought up in channel. Over the years it has expanded to provide differing viewpoints and information that may possibly be relevant – if not now, then at a later date.
I worked closely with Sanguinarius, and regularly work with other people in the community to get reliable information out to, well, pretty much anyone, new and experienced alike, without regard to group affiliation. While I have no medical training, I firmly believe that the only individual best able to maintain one’s health on a day to day basis is oneself, and this can only be accomplished by reading and learning as much medical information as is practical for one’s situation. Many health issues within the community I recognize as health issues that may be mitigated or avoided with proper nutrition and health, and I strive to make people aware of this, and what steps they can take to achieve this on their own.
