I'm sorry you have such a sucky family! Alsoif you were the person who helped me with my new puppy (she chews stuff up and cries at night) Thak you soo frikin much! It actually helped alot, as my mom has no idea wt fridge she's doing. I think that its also great tha you have a caring boufriend thats willing tostand up for you! My boyfriend would just... i dont know. <p> DONT DO DRUGS! Yove heard it before, but it can really mess you up. I've tried marijuana, and it's awful. Once you get into highschool, its a little difficult to sa no (my bf smokes) and hose close to you might do it, but it will just make stuff worse. (Also its illegal) <p> Were all so proud that through all of this crap, youve remained so cheerful &happy. Things will get better belive it or not. Also, youve got friends on here as well, so that helps alot!<p> Don't worry, be happy, cause evry little thing, its gunna be alright!-Bob Marley (who as happy even tough he smoked BUT STILL DONT DO IT THATS HOW HE DIED) <p> Luh yah,<p> Coco Bean (our lil poopy puppy)

A very entertaining and well-written book. Dr. Lykken explains the difference between 'psychopath' and 'sociopath'; terms which were previously used interchangeably, even in textbooks. This is a must-read for all professionals and laypersons interested in the genre -- very cutting edge.
