    Generally, I'd say that we tend not to use or need tags for "I' statements, Daisy. Because tags are used to seek confirmation, agreement with the main statement, it's somewhat nonsensical to seek agreement/confirmation from yourself. You should know what you think.

    He may go to the party, don't you think?

    He may go to the party, right?

    He may go to the party, mayn't he?

    [Possible but not at all likely for most dialects of English]

    She might go to the party, don't you think?

    She might go to the party, might she not?
