Can’t Feel Sadness.?
Doctor, I want to ask, why is it so hard for me to feel compassion for my fellow humans? If I see animals that are tortured or are sick and hungry I feel very sad and cry, but, when I see humans who experience conditions like the above, I actually act normal and do not care even when I see my parents seriously ill until seizures I only see seizures but I do not feel sad, I just cry and even then I forced and the rest I do not cry anymore because my heart feels like nothing happened. Doctor, please tell me what kind of mental disorder is this?
