    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.

    I think there is music

    for every mood. I have a playlist of music that I play when I am feeling sad or depressed. Walk you home by Karmina, These are the days by Van Morrison and Your ex-lover is dead by Stars to name a few. It helps to just feel it and music somehow makes it easier to accept and...

    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...

    Every single day i listen to at least 15-20 songs, and I like to sing a lot. Music is my escape for everything. I only like punk rock/rock? music like Green Day (my fav.) and blink 182 and Nirvana and stuff, but I like other stuff a little too. I could literally lock my self in...

    This is best way for me to release pent up

    emotions I'm too scared or blocked to share with anyone. Some friends tell me I'm "wallowing and making myself sadder" but what they don't get is that it's a catharsis. And I cry and know the crying will lessen once it's been poured out while listening.

    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...

    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..

    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.

    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...

    When I'm Depressed, I Listen..

    to a series of "blow your brains out" type of music. Its a way for myself to figure out what I'm feeling. For example, if I listen to Pink's "Don't Let Me Get Me" its because I'm causing self-inflicted wars. If I listen to "Welcome to My Life" by Simple Plan (don't hate - I like...
