    Better Than Pills

    I can attest to it personally as i was prescribed different meds over the years for everything from Borderline Personality to Bi Polar and damn near everything in between. For me, all i need is a radio with a good station or my playlist and that is therapy enough!

    I use music as a method to unleash my constant

    anger and hate towards humanity. I am always calm and happy but I get pissed off easily. Thank the gods for Death Metal.

    If I ever went to therapy I would seem insane.

    I sound insane when I talk compared to what I say.. But have you thought if you're not like me then to me you sound weird. You weirdo :)

    My ship went down In a sea of sound.

    When I woke up alone I had everything: A handful of moments I wished I could change And a tongue like a nightmare that cut like a blade. In a city of fools, I was careful and cool, But they tore me apart like a hurricane... A handful of moments I wished I could change But I was...

    Mood Music

    If i feel down or a little low, i always find certain music has the ability to lift my mood. Music is such an emotional art, I just wish i could play an instrument and make my own.

    Pushed around and kicked around always a

    lonely boy. You were the one that they'd talk about around town as they put you down.And as hard as they would try they'd hurt to make you crybut you'd never cry to them just to your soul. No you'd never cry to them just to your soul

    This used to work for me,

    very well. I, too, had specific songs, which seemed to elevate my mood, as they brought back good memories. I'm finding, now, though, that this doesn't seem to have that effect, anymore. This experience is lessening my feelings of hope.

    Sundays are my therapy days.  I listen to my playlist - everything from Hank Sr, Aqua, Conway Twitty,  Cher, Charlie Pride, Billy Idol - could go on forever.  I get to sing, fantasize, do my puzzles or play video games - all while listening and singing out of tune.  Love...
