I hit my leg when Im angry or stressed out. My life is crap right now and Im stressed and lonely, so it makes me angry. I do it mostly because I am mad at myself for my life being crap. And, I cant just fix things and make it all better either. Also, I have no health insurance so I cant seek counseling. I need to stop because I do have bruising on my leg. If you have done this, how have you handled it or what made you stop.

My son does that when he's frustrated w/ his video game. I swear he's probably got a permanent bruise on the top of his leg. I personally don't abuse myself in that way. I have other self destructive things to do when I'm really mad. It usually involves drinking & smoking. To each his own, right?! :p
