this is sort of like the cutting yourself forum
but in my case, sometimes i do insanely crazy things like break my hand with a rock and hit it against a wall until i pass out
for no reason other than to do it
i think its kinda weird

Hideout,

I think the reasons you do this would be similar to those for why a guy cuts. You may feel you need to be punished. You may consider that harming yourself is a way to feel something, rather than nothing at all. Or you may find that this pain is more bearable because you yourself have caused it; you are in control.

Like I said on that other thread, these are all coping strategies we learn as abused boys. Don't blame yourself for any of this; just get help in dealing with the problem. Any doctor will understand and won't blame you either.

Much love,
Larry
