I feel like a volcano erupting with nothing but the most sinister and evil thoughts of hurting people. When I feel like this, it feels like 99% of me doesn't feel anything at all,much like a psychopath, then there is that tiny little bit of my mind saying no, please stop thinking this way. Then depression sets in because I have these thoughts then the anger again. Its just a constant ,vicious circle of self hatred over and over again
Let me set your mind at ease. If you are worrying that you might be a psychopath, there's no way you are actually a psychopath. Depressed, maybe. Angry, maybe. But a psychopath? Doubtful. Talk to a licensed clinician though. It's not a good idea to get advice from untrained people about incredibly complicated issues like personality disorders. Too much misinformation.

From what I have been searching there are two traits common between a bpd and aspd and they are impulsive behaviours and on another side, the lack of true empathy. But, this lack of true empathy comes from different roots.

Said that, from what I know from psychiatrists, traits of other disorders could occur in bpd, like narc’s traits are very common in AsPD personalities.

From my personal experience, when a person is pure borderline, the lack of true empathy is like a defence to prevent intimacy, in an attempt to avoid showing up the true self that they consider inadequate and was somehow “castrated” by his/her caretakers.
Excellent analysis. I agree 100%.

Let me also suggest that you read this article I wrote about why self-diagnosis is an utterly terrible idea.

Congratulations for this article and thanks for sharing.
I think is needed. Also, you write it with great understanding of people who are not expert but are lost and trying to grab whatever can give them a little of hope and light. I think of me as a quite rational person but I also had my moments of desperation and made online tests, having my Astral card read and (sit down), tarot cards read and at the top of all, lol! the lines of my hands read. My Lord!
