Senior Who Hits
and by Senior I mean over 65, not a high school student.

I have been hitting myself (mostly my head) since high school. There have been periods of time when I didn't, but lately it is out of control. My wife pointed out that on a seven day vacation "I lost it" five times. I believe her, but don't keep track. Probably was five events. In the previous three months there may have been three or four.

When I read about self harm, I read so much about young people. I wonder if I'm the only old man still not growing out of this nonsense.

You most certainly are not alone. Kudos to you for reaching out for support with this. It is not easy to say aloud that you are struggling.

Welcome. May you be well. -E
