Default Am I a psychopath?

So, basically, I've been feeling apathetic to almost everything. I don't care if I die or live. I feel numb. There have been countless tragedies at my highschool and I really don't "care." I was diagnosed with depression a few months back and am on meds. I just can't tell.

Clinically that alone wouldn't make you a psychopath. Having depression can make one more apathetic which certainly seems to be the case. Usually, people who are a psychopath or a sociopath (the two are not the same even if they at times could share similarities) has some sort of aggressive, often violent nature about them. True a psychopath can and often is less empathetic/no empathy, having little to no empathy again is not enough to declare one a psychopath.

I agree with @SethfrimMi. Iíll add that a sociopath would feel no remorse or empathy for the violence the e committed into other people. Kinda like Charles Manson or Adolf Hitler

Depression can/will leave you feeling numb. Like you donít care. So will the meds. All depends on the type and kind. Itís all part of it, and should pass in time with proper therapy and stuff.

Just stick with it. Itís ok, itíll change and get better in time ok?

Well since you were diagnosed with depression you answered your question basically yourself. You feel like that because of your depression not because you are a psychopath.

I often feel numb and I am not able to care about anything at all when I am in my depressive phases. This is pretty normal, so just stick to your meds and therapy and things get eventually better.

It's not easy but maybe you should also try to find some distraction so that you are too busy thinking about stuff like that...usually helps me a lot.
