Hi, lately whenever I have a panic attack about the dinner I'm about to have (whether I think it has too much oil, or too many calories, etc..) I find one escape being to hit myself, and I know this sounds horrible but I seem to only be satisfied when I think it'll leave a bruise , which last time it did and a pretty bad one at that. I'm thinking it's because I want my future self to remember what I did wrong so I won't do it again. Please any help explaining why or how to overcome this and get back to not over thinking and attacking myself would be greatly appreciated. x
