Head banging, hair pulling, kicking the bedpost, trying to crush my skull between my hands - whatever, anything to take my mind off the pain in my left side.
A few weeks ago Linda B. posted something about a punching bag. That really seemed like a good idea, so I'm investing in one. It seems like it would be a lot easier on the old noggin than the wall and I could beat the devil out of it (thus saving my "breakables" around the house).
When we were in NY, Elaine and I compared bruises and neither of us could remember how we got them. I think, depending on the severity of the attack, we all do damnage to ourselves in different ways.
Of course, as everyone else has said, all these abusive things we do only distracts us from the pain for a milisecond at best.
