Is there a psychological disease where you feel bad for objects when something bad happens to them, but you don't usually feel bad for people?

Your medical history: gives you lots to think about and perhaps it is difficult for you to focus on the feelings of others. This low empathy can be discussed w/a clinical psychologist, as can possible psychological aspects of your physical situation. You sound like a nice person and I wish you peace and good health. Hormones may be playing a role so keep in touch w/your doc.
