How Will I Know When to Go Inpatient with BPD?

Why Do I Seem Un(sym/em)pathetic?

From the : I’m 18. Over the last year or so, I have noticed that I seem to lack (or have way less) sympathy and empathy than my peers.

I Want to Kill & I Do Not Feel the Same

Everyday all day, most of what occupies my kind is various conversations with myself about Killing other people and being able to do it well. I’ve learned how to make various poisons, and really want to try them on my friends, who are the only people who make fun of me.
