We all know one; that mate, colleague, family member that whenever they visit you know when they leave you will feel like all the happiness has left the world. When they call you realise you've managed the entire conversation without really uttering a word about your day, whilst they've emotionally dumped their load on you. (Sorry, not sorry) THEY leave the meeting/conversation feeling better/like a weight has been lifted, whilst you're left wondering if you'll ever feel happiness again, like the life force has been sucked out of you, reaching for the chocolate.
Some people call them psychic vampires but I like to bow to the sheer genius that is J K Rowling and scream 'Dementor Dementor' and run for cover.
