    Excuse my ignorance here but what exactly does apathy mean? Isn’t that a general suffix for any kind of mental disorder that’s to do being lacking in the emotional department?

    @r.miller-Apathy means basically being completely uninterested in any specific situation, item or outcome. It’s not always indicative of a mental disorder. You’re likely apathetic about the cracks in the streets of San Diego if you live in Illinois for example. “Could care less” is another apt description.
