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.

and welcome to RYL!!!!!

just another floating iceberg in this ocean we call life....

Am I a failure from birth
Is misery what I deserve
Am I just so void of love
That I'm never good, never good enough

Welcome to ryl take care

Have you ever confused a dream with life? Or stolen something when you have the cash? Have you ever been blue? Or thought your train moving while sitting still? Maybe I was just crazy. Maybe it was the 60's. Or maybe I was just a girl... interrupted.
I know what it's like to want to die. How it hurts to smile. How you try to fit in but you can't. How you hurt yourself on the outside to try to kill the thing on the inside. I tried groups, didn't work out just made my depression a lot worse.

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

A certain darkness is needed to see the stars.
