How do you feel before self harming?

How do you feel after self harming?

One of the reasons I s/h is because I am angry I feel out of control,:stomp:I have this sense of relieve after I react the same with any overload of emotions I can't control.
However there is another form of s/h I use which I have no idea why I do it nor do I feel better after I just feel the same :unsure:
