  • i used to to headbang as a child..actually i did all the way into my teens..dr's back then never knew why i did that, but i know that when i did, it soothed me..however i only ever used to do it at night to put myself to sleep..i never did it to hurt myself, i never did hurt myself, it just soothed me..i remember when i got to be about 7-8 i started banging my head on my bed frame, like the part that sticks up right where the pillow goes on top of, and my dad actually raised my bed so i couldnt do that..i remember being soooooo yaa, i turned out just fine :) sorta....LOL..
