brain damage?

Not open for further replies.
when i was younger, i had a lot of social problems, and i got furious repeatedly. but of course i wasn't allowed to break things, so i took it out on myself by (don't laugh) smacking myself across the head. i did this a few times over the years. not a chronic thing i did every day, but still. would this cause brain damage in any way..?

Unless you were hitting yourself hard enough to make the brain rebound off the side of your skull there shouldn't be any damage.
However, I wouldn't advocate this kind of behaviour as a hit in the right place (or the wrong one, whichever way you want to look at it) could jar your optic nerve and send you blind.
i don't do it any more, i've since learned how to deal with my problems

god, so much pain there was, i'm suprised i'm normal now
