Well, its good news that this has been harmless so far, but it obviously has the potential to cause real problems, for you and those who receive your attentions. You really do need to see a very experienced counsellor or psychotherapist to work on this. There sound like elements of low self-esteem and a greed for attention to make you feel more important and loved ; these can be dealt with but only in serious counselling / psychotherapy, and not by medication. See a good local psychologist for a proper assessment and a discussion of treatment options
