Self abuse, brain injury? Damage?
When I was little, like 5-17 or so (i'm 26 now). I used to self abuse by ramming my head into the wall, beating my head with my fists, beating a book on my forehead as hard as I could. Well, I don't want to ask a doc out of embarassement, but do you think that I oculd have damaged myself permanently? Like can cause anerisms or brain damage or alzhiermers or something? I have a thicker skull build up on one side of my forehead, I think because I had abused myself. I never knocked myself out, but I would bruise myself and give myself headaches, and a few times got "goose eggs" or "knots" on my forehead and head.
I worry now that maybe I have just made myself worse, but I was too young to understand what I was doing to myself! What do you think?
