I used to bang my head when I felt particularly horrible and out of control. Care to share what is going on?

Never mind, Buffy. I just read your post about your job on the previous page. I think I know why you feel like banging your head. Please don't punish yourself for what some idiot has done. It sucks! It 's awful!!!!

Banging your head is a punishment of yourself, you mean?

You know, Buffy, it just occurred to me that when I used to bang my head my husband (who is normally very loving and supportive) would calmly tell me to stop or he would leave the house. I knew he meant it.

That's how I stopped. Just came back to me. And if, God forbid, he wasn't here with me, I could still see him saying that to me in his calm, loving way and I'd probably stop. ((((((HUGS))))))

Can you bang your head against a pillow instead of something hard? I'm sorry if that seems like a lame question, but I've done it, and it was helpful to me. Kit

That actually sounds like a really good idea.

I don't have anyone to emotionally support me.
