SisterAgatha, every single person here said, "No." Did you even read the responses?

I don't feel a heavy burden now though.

And theoretically if I did, why would telling someone whose responses are going to be that I'm a wicked human and should pray more help?

Yes, I'm menstruating. You don't want to be around me right now.
You worry about your conscience, and you stay the fuck away from mine.

Yeah, the heavy burden thing lets me off -- I don't even feel a light burden.  In the whole course of my life I've only felt guilty about two things, both of which I was more than capable of dealing with, and resolving, on my own. 

The way I live, I rarely even get the opportunity to do something that would make me feel guilty, never mind have any desire to actually do it. 

It does make me wonder what on Earth Xtians are doing, and doing regularly, that would make them feel guilty?  I was joking when I mentioned cutting people up and distributing the parts in baggies, but are average, everyday Xtians actually doing things like that?

I redact Mags excuse on the basis there is nothing odd about being "grumpy" when someone is ignoring your protest to shove garbage down your throat.

Pretending to be the bigger man by vilifying aggression in those you are antagonizing is a dick move and I won't have it.

It's the Catholic guilt cycle. You go to confession to be told you're shit for being human so you feel badly when you're human and go to confession...

Given your disingenuous attitude to others I have no doubt you find confession useful. Being basically honest I have no need to make up shit for a priest. Confession is probably useful for bad people.
