I have a question/concern to air out. It involves "self-punishment." A physical action I do to myself to feel better. It's worst now, I am currently writing this with a throbbing nose because I slugged myself in the face three times. I've also damaged my hand after punching a brick wall over and over. When I was younger I used to use a hanger as a sort of flagellation on my back. I was raised Catholic but I don't think it's religious, as I'm not really a religious person. And there's no sexual gratification. It's simply that I feel that I deserve it. Am I alone here?
