I was at an amusement park yesterday. We were sitting at a table and not far from us I saw two women who probably were sisters. They both were doing something (one more than the other) that I am confused about. Both were repeatedly hitting (smacking) the top their heads as they carried on.

Why would one do that? Maybe autistic?

Possibly self-harm - a way of temporarily relieving intense feelings, pressure, or anxiety and could be a symptom of psychiatric illness. Usually occurs when a person face what seem like overwhelming or distressing feelings.

We were at a buffet for a company. I went with my family (I don't work for this company but a family member does) Not sure if they were anxious or not. But both smacked their heads so hard you could hear a pop pop
