Several years ago, I discovered that hitting myself provided relief from the emotional pain that I feel. Now it has unfortunately become a habit. The urge is there every day, varying in frequency and intensity depending on what I am currently experiencing. When I created this image, I was lucky to go a couple of hours without the thought. The image depicts that the urge arises, day and night, in many daily activities. It’s a thought. I don’t want to be hit but my head wants me to hit me. Mostly it remains a thought but sometimes it happens.
