I suffer and am medicated for anxiety and depression. I do have a short temper and I'm very, very hard on myself.
Recently, I've noticed that when I am very frustrated, in 'I want to pull my hair moments', I start to hit myself in the head with my fists. I'm sure I've been doing it for years, but about a month ago I noticed that when I hit myself hard, I felt relief and I kept on doing. I've consciously hit myself in the head twice now to get this feeling of relief.
I guess I just needed to share this with someone, but does this sound like self harming?
That does sound like self-harm. You're intentionally hurting yourself to get some form of emotional relief which is a fairly common reason for it. I do hope you're getting some support for it. Take care.
