I want to at least get a cat but

but my therapist and family don't think I should. I don't see why not because I work part time as a pet sitter and take a dog grooming course and I'm good with animals. It's depressing me, because I don't have anything, no pets, no kids, no career, no friends, no boyfriend and now I can't even get a cat. What am I suppose to live for? I have nothing to live for, these people ...

I m worried that I might be a sociopath/psychopath. The main reason why I think this is because I was very mean to animals when I was kid. I don t know why I was, but I have been reading up on signs of sociopathy/psyhcopathy in children and this is one of the biggest signs. I never got in serious trouble as a kid like in school or anything. I never really had friends, I ...

How do you overcome lethargy?

Would really help me to hear others' experiences and what they do to fight it? Recently I feel exhausted, and I'm not sure it corresponds to my mood dropping these past few days or sleep patterns being messed up (I can't sleep at night because nighttime is so quiet and I think about things a lot) It's not just tiredness like sleepiness, it feels physical like moving out of bed is tiring. Can't even get ...

Diagnosis please

Mental Deterioration

In the past few days, I have been feeling a burgeoning amount of hatred that is warping my beliefs. I am normally a very empathetic and kind person that punishes himself for his constant mistakes and apologizes constantly.

I hurt myself before hurting another person, and I am overly sensitive to criticism. But talking with the person I felt hurt me and reconciling was easy enough. All it took was one conversation and everything would ...

Fear of doing something wrong

Hi all,

I think this topic can fit into many categories, but not sure if this is related to particular illness.

Anyway, why do I have this fear of doing something wrong, although I have been informed it's not wrong?

For example, I am concerned eating chicken eggs will terminate lives. Then I asked whether eating chicken eggs the same as killing. The question is answered, no it's not, because they're unfertilized.

Although the question ...

I feel no empathy or any emotions, but I still laugh/smile/c

Hello. I have been thinking about this a lot lately, and I'm sorry if this sounds quite edgy, but I really need help.

Also, I have ...
