    I Have Psychopathic Tendencies

    It's terrifying, but I do. I have most of the symptoms and it scares me to death sometimes... Every time I talk to someone, I imagine in great detail of how I would kill/hurt them. They get rather graphic. I don't know what to do

    Is Something Wrong With Me?

    I was a pretty normal woman until recently...I started to get these random out of the blue violent thoughts. I've thought about killing people and it's scaring me. Maybe I've watched to many horror movies last week or read one too many Creepypasta's. I'm not sure...Am I going...

    I'm not even going to fight it anymore.

    Trying to be normal, it's not going to happen. Nothing about my life is normal, so why should I keep fighting it? Just let it all out and whatever happens happens in my opinion.

    Screaming

    There is a dark corner of my mind where I keep a certain part of myself locked away.  Think of it as a padded cell.  I rarely approach this corner; the smell is awful. Sometimes, though, I am compelled by a perverse curiosity to stand just outside the reinforced steel...

    I Think I'M Psychotic
