my question to follow.
i have for many years - would wake up in the morning with soreness on my forehead. i’d look in the mirror and see scratches there always in fairly the same location about 2 inches above my eyes and fairly close to center (at my hairline). last night it happened again but i was awake enough this time to be aware of it happening as it happened. then i fell back asleep and was once again unaware until i was in the shower and felt a sting in that location. but memory was there there this time and for the first time. i know i was reaching inside my brain as best as i could. i was aware and i think i know what it had to do with.

so i’m just wondering... what could be in that location in my brain that i’d be reaching for? i have a hint of something about it. but i don’t want to say yet because it also deals with the thing i’ve recently been trying to talk about that i have a bit of shame talking about.

i can ask my therapist next time i see her but her response will be so cluttered with deferring to me to figure out what its all about and i am curious if someone might just come up with a correct and or interesting response either just from “observations” or perhaps a similar experience or whatever idea might come up. so once my question in slightly different words: What is located in the brain in the area mentioned above that i apparently reach for in my sleep?

The frontal lobe plays a key role in future planning, including self-management and decision-making.

People with frontal lobe damage often struggle with gathering information, remembering previous experiences, and making decisions based on this input.

Some of the many other functions the frontal lobe plays in daily functions include:
  • Speech and language production: Broca’s area, a region in the frontal lobe, helps put thoughts into words. Damage to this area can undermine the ability to speak, to understand language, or to produce speech that makes sense.
  • Some motor skills: The frontal lobe houses the primary motor cortex, which helps coordinate voluntary movements, including walking and running.
  • Comparing objects: The frontal lobe helps categorize and classify objects, in addition to distinguishing one item from another.
  • Forming memories: Virtually every brain region plays a role in memory, so the frontal lobe is not unique. However, research suggests it plays a key role in forming long-term memories.
  • Understanding and reacting to the feelings of others: The frontal lobe is vital for empathy.
  • Forming personality: The complex interplay of impulse control, memory, and other tasks helps form a person’s key characteristics. Damage to the frontal lobe can radically alter personality.
  • Reward-seeking behavior and motivation: Most of the brain’s dopamine-sensitive neurons are in the frontal lobe. Dopamine is a brain chemical that helps support feelings of reward and motivation.
  • Managing attention, including selective attention: When the frontal lobe cannot properly manage attention, then conditions, such as attention deficit disorder (ADHD), may develop.


(Copy/pasted for you because that area of the brain actually controls quite a lot.)

Well this provides much to consider! Thanks for the info Paisley. Nothing stands out definitively yet, but now I wonder, is it an area a demon might inhabit. I don't believe in demons unless scientists can rule it in, but hijacker does have me considering that And more importantly could an alter in ESD or DID be routed here??
