    While music's effect on the brain's dopamine,

    cortisol, serotonin and oxytocin have been discussed and studied much, I'm not sure how much people have considered the effects of adrenaline... While Darkseed's "Ultimate Darkness" is often my go-to music for gym training, today finds an old friend in their Poison Awaits album...

    Well I'm always depressed

    but I listen to music all the time. I put my headphones in and just ignore the world and it's the best feeling ever....to be carefree.

    Whenever I'm pissed or sad

    I like to listen to real music

    when my heart feels cold, things like Bob Marley, Kate Bush, 70s country (yes, you, Tammy Wynnette!!) especially because I listen to these on vinyl that I pick up from the charity shop and it sounds so rich and warms my heart from the cold modern world. However... if I stop...

    I put my headphones on at work,

    so the other two girls can talk about school and their lives. I am always over talked or treat me like I don't know anything or my life is nothing compared to theirs.

    I know I'm not the only one it lets me drown

    On the bus on the way to school my ear buds are

    always plugged in, and on the highest volume. I shut out the world and all of its negative energy, but I always seem to get picked on either way. If it weren't for music I probably would've committed suicide by now..

    Music is my escape, when I am sad

    or angry I get in my truck, turn the music up and take a long drive on the back roads or go for a run at the park with the music in my ears to drown out the world.

    that when I listen to them together make me feel like Iā€™m in love. To this I can add and take songs, that when played will put me in a time and place ā€” They tell a very emotionally intricate story based on the feelings the music evokes inside of me. A private secret code...

    This sounds pretty pathetic

    but without my music I'd eventually just stop. Is stop everything. At some point I'd just need to escape something. It could be pain, stress, annoying little kids. My music is my escape. Even when there's no one left I still have that. Especially when I've hit rock bottom. The...

    depending on my moods. But when I'm feeling really low, that is generally the mood of my music as well. It DOES help to purge those feelings for me too, as someone else had stated
