    Well no - that's not a "mental disorder"....... actually it's quite common. You have repressed anger against your little sister.

    It's YOUR family - mother and father and you - and then along comes Baby Sister - and now she's "So Cute". It takes attention which used to be yours and turns it on her. This is terribly sad for kids. So in normal people this causes terrific anger.

    BUT - you're not supposed to be angry - so it gets shoved down into your unconscious mind. Then your mind begins to spin out fantasies of killing little sister.......... But the good news is that nobody ever actually DOES this. We can have all manner of fantasies - but nobody ever acts on them.

    So - you're NORMAL....... it's ok. You're not going to hurt anybody - and you're not some sort of monster.

    I believe that you've simply become obsessed with your own random thoughts.
    You may have had this impulse once when she annoyed you. This is normal, but you were horrified by the thought so you couldn't help but to keep thinking it.
    It's like if you were ordered to not think about a purple elephant, that's all you can think about.
    That's just my opinion, of course I can't diagnose you.

    I would say those are intrusive thoughts. When you have them, just change them to something else. If they continue, please seek help.
