Self Injury Forum - hitting myself when angry

(previous title is 'hitting myself') this time it gets worse and worse.. yesterday i felt so angry at my boyfriend so i hit myself.. i smacked and punched my legs till i have bruises.. and i cried like mad.. its not because of the fight, but usually i cry because i hate myself for doing this.. now my legs are covered with bruises.. after the fights, instead of making things better, i blame and start punching myself.. when i hit myself, it feels better.. just for a while.. and i'll feel all horrible and depressed.. i hide behind my smiles, nobody knows i am struggling with this.. people see me as this happy girl.. i am, but when the point gets low, i'll become a total monster.. im not so tired of injuring myself.. im so tired of hiding..

The ways you hurt yourself can be physical, such as cutting yourself. They can also be less obvious, such as putting yourself in risky situations, or not looking after your own physical or emotional needs. Ways of self-harming can include: • cutting yourself • poisoning yourself • over-eating or under-eating • burning your skin • inserting objects into your body • hitting yourself or walls • overdosing • exercising excessively • scratching and hair pulling. After self-harming, you might feel better and more able to cope for a while. If you self-harm, you may feel embarrassed or ashamed about it.

Why do people harm themselves? There are no fixed rules about why people self-harm. Any difficult experience can cause someone to self-harm. Rethink. Mental Health. Mental Health. Dealing with Anger.
