My name is Austin Ford im interested Romanian vampirism. I am diagnosed bi polar psychotic so I live in a world full of hallucinations they sometimes accurately predict the future it happens naturally though I have no control over it. I also get mania if drink stuff like coca cola i will be awake for around 48 hours. I used to have gothic style as a student and now im refinding myself. If anyone can help me find information about Romanian vampires I would be thankful

Generally if you are wanting to search for Romanian vampire lore...

Moroi - (ref) A moroi (sometimes moroii in modern fiction; pl. moroi) is a type of vampire or ghost in Romanian folklore. A female moroi is called a moroaică (pl. moroaice). In some versions, a moroi is a phantom of a dead person which leaves the grave to draw energy from the living.

Strigoi - In Romanian mythology, strigoi (English: striga, poltergeist)[1] are the troubled spirits of the dead rising from the grave. Some strigoi can be living people with certain magical properties. Some of the properties of the strigoi include: the ability to transform into an animal, invisibility, and the propensity to drain the vitality of victims via blood loss. Strigoi served as one of the prototypes for Count Dracula, and thus the modern characterization of vampires.[2] (ref). There is another distinction mentioned between 'strigoi viu' (akin to a sorceror) and 'strigoi mort' (dead strigoi; more vampiric in terms of stereotyped behaviour patterns). The strigoi mythology is still going strong in places (ref).

There is also the Pricolici, but most sources seem to point toward werewolf/vampire, not unlike the Vrykolakas.

These are not particularly in-depth sources, but generally, scouring the references and citations section can provide a springboard.

(Romanian Folklore and Literary Representations of Vampires)
(Vampires, Burial, and Death: Folklore and Reality)
(Were-Beings and "Strigoi" Legends in Village Life: Romanian Folk Beliefs)

I did begin to poke at vampire mythology by region for my post-graduate dissertation to relate it to pathogen outbreaks to see if there was a correlation but, said work was not concluded. Still, I kept some resources bookmarked.

Thank you nachtzehren.  While reading all that material you have there, it opened up an illumination for me.  All of the above thru history and culture passed on from all kinds of minds influence those that come after them.  All of the myths and stories create a continuous line of misinformation that builds on hysteria to create a selling machine for books and movies today.  

Including the showmanship of the Catholic church creating this stuff in the same way for demons to help create their self-importance, I see how all this stuff grew in false importance.  Based on my own real-time experience with many different kinds of this stuff, I get rid of all this in about 30 seconds.  No matter what name that is put on it, it all boils down to the same element and is the same thing.  I just now realized what it all is... Just the same mix-mess called by various names.   I do not take weeks on end as the Catholic Church talks about to take care of the problem or how the movies are created to make money from such.  lol.

Thanks, you helped open my eyes not even realizing what you were doing.

Happy to have provided a post that helped, in one way, another or unexpectedly.

I was tempted to trace the strigoi back to the strix/striges of classical antiquity but that would have taken away from the Romanian focus that was requested.

from your initial proclamation that you would not be answering me or including me in any way regarding your posts, you have done a complete flip flop in directly addressing me and wanting to interact with me on different posts. Can I even view you as serious on anything or are you among the political brexit crowd as well? Or are you in the midst of your mid-life crisis???

All of the above obviously, however if you are to address me why shan't I address you in response? If you would kindly point out where I said I'd never answer or include you that would be handy, since I have no recollection. Of course I'm among the Brexit crowd, its a very interesting development and mid life crisis? Oh me? How should I know? Leave it up to others to interpret that, though what that has to do with me responding to you holds little on me.

brexit crowd cannot make up their mind How To Do It and agree on the matter.

"Well firstly, I never intended to interact with you. So therefore, I do not need to get used to it. You decided to interact with me, by posting vague comments insinuating superiority. You're nature as you put it is clearly intended, not anything of a instinctive nature."

I have to say... I wholeheartedly agree with you, Maxx. (I know, you're overjoyed. jocolor )

Anyway....
This forum never catered to those types in the past, so I now find myself scratching my head and wondering what the hell is going on.
Look... welcome to the forum and all, but being a bi polar psychotic living in a world of hallucinations isn't exactly the best foundation to start occult studies on. I get a distinct feeling that I'm stating the severely obvious, but...

To the person who made the original post: did you ever consider that intensive therapy and medication were better options for you than studies about vampiric folklore?

I never said they were forbidden, however, this forum is more about serious discussion over the occult.
I'd like to add also that Romanian Strigoi hardly encompass any serious religious study. Theology requires a lot more than that.

And being a welcome wagon with open arms to anyone out there coming in only puts this place in the same category as the VCN or OVC or whatever it is called.  It is like Sweden being "open-minded" and taking in all the immigrants out there into their socialistic haven.  Mystic should be able to understand my comparison.

Now they are being run over by the Muslim bunch from Syria who account for 25% of their entire population and who do not try to fit in but try to take over completely.   The enormous drain on the economy demanding to be taken care of is destroying their country.  This is my example of how you cannot be "nice" to everyone.

So the crazy element would not be one that common sense would say Come on in.....lol.

Besides, professional therapy does not allow one to gain the spotlight and notoriety that a vampire network does.  Especially, revealing all to strangers on the first post....ha.   Hiding the fact would allow one to last longer before the crazy demo surfaces and everyone begins to see it in action.

Why?   The VCN would be more to your liking with their type of delusionary topics appearing to fit into your liking. Dracula reincarnated frequents their sites all the time.

Yes, I agree with Maxx's statement about my country to some degree. Our politicians and people overall have been very naive. Immigration can tear a country apart with lack of infrastructure to support it. It would have been more responsible to have come up with an agreement across the board within EU to take in as much immigration in terms of percentage, equalling it in proportion, to each country instead of mass loading it upon one or the other nation that has to stand off alone. It might be seen as a humanitarian deed, but it is ultimately up and bound to political opinion - or a matter of facts, seeing how such tidal waves trigger responses and chaotic changes in a country. It can be argued from many different angles but I personally prefer to stay out of politics, or at least engage in it only as a neutral observer, or to provide constructive solutions.

You er if you think this is a therapy site for any help to assist one in recovering a basic way to interact with society and appear normal.  It will not baby anyone with kindness.  lol.  I am aware of several that read this forum and who suffer from the same thing you describe.  It does not spread kindness out to their group therapy sessions.  I believe there are more than a few out there on medication assistance.....  lol.  Rightly so.

They send me a check each month to help make sure there is a continuing crowd requiring medication that is running through their office seeking them every day to help give them business. ha.

And since I live on an Indian Reservation.....the tribe does not come close to me and in fact vacate the area when I roam through their cemeteries. Wonder why they treat me differently than their Shaman? lol

Maxx, I have been thinking. Maybe you act upon a flawed notion and faulty premise that every new member must be aggressively assaulted. Instead I have set up a different protocol which I am now proposing, namely that: A) we will be more open-minded to newcomers, and that B) we will ask them serious questions if this forum is really for them and then to C) let them decide whether they want to stay or not. I believe this would create a more hospitable environment and increase the inflow of actually good people to the forum to participate as members, as it would render a greater attraction for the right type of audiance, whilst only carefully and slowly weeding out the wrong audiance through this above mentioned procedure.
