Ok so here is the deal. I have been without feeding for quite a long while (no I will not go into detail). The purpose of this thread is to attempt to catalog the effects of going without feeding in the short term and then also in the long term. I have experience in both areas. For the purposes of this thread Short Term is 6 months or less, Mid Term is 6 to 18 months and Long Term is greater than 18 months. Yes I am aware my perception of time is a bit skewed but those time frames make sense to me.

Short Term effects: irritability, restlessness, insomnia, sleeping too much, constantly feeling hunger even when full, shakes, muscle cramps, goosebumps, clammy skin, (for now thats what I can remember)

Mid Term: Same as short term plus feeling of incompleteness, loss of mental capacity, metabolism in over-drive, constant need to eat, sensitivity to sunlight, increased allergy sensitivity in general, headaches constantly, "strange" dreams (I dream in blood when I do dream), lack of fulfillment feeling, lethargy, twitchy reaction times, heightened senses, increased medical issues (example blood sugar issues), increased aura output of "predatory mode" (mundanes perceive you as more of a predator without you realizing it and will avoid you if possible), I've also had a loss of healing capability however my resistance to toxins and disease has increased a hundred fold.

Long Term: Same as Short and Mid Terms, plus effects are still being cataloged as they happen but so far: incompleteness of self, extremely heightened senses, extreme sunlight sensitivity, dreams of blood including daydreams, jitters, super metabolism, I also seem to be healing at the rate of a mundane person maybe even a little slower, feeling "old", and other effects will be known as i figure them out and get them on here.

That is just a list of the effects I can remember of the last few years. I don't know how many of you go very long without feeding but should you choose or be forced to starve then at least you have an idea of what you might be able to expect. I have also noticed that I am able to go without sleep for longer periods of time after I have fed and taken that first sleep of feeding. For now though I am an insomniac.

you auto vamping at all?

its when you taste your own blood in your mouth as your body is attacking itself. Can get sores in your mouth. The other thing I know people report is bad acid reflux

No. I've very little left in the way of reserves. If I wasn't such a stubborn bastard I'd probably have starved to death by now. And yes I am familiar with it, but as I have acid reflux anyways well fed or not to me there is no difference.

yes but not a reason i'm willing to discuss publicly. the need to know crowd is kept small for a particular reason, not to be rude.
