Time for Some Humor: Post-Concert Depression Symptoms!

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Tear

Let’s start this week out with a little humor!

As most of you know, I like a good concert. I especially like Dave Matthews Band shows.

Truthfully, these are the only shows I travel a significant distance to see (I think the second farthest was Ryan Bingham), so what I’m about to share with you is especially significant to that area of my life!

Last month, Alternative Press posted The 9 Phases of Post-Concert Depression, and I think anyone who’s been super excited and spent weeks or even months preparing for a big show can tell you, they’re all spot on!

Euphoria, reflection, reality–this is good stuff :)

So take a few minutes this Monday morning (or, whenever you’re reading this) and enjoy a laugh or two!

Then, let us know which concert caused YOU the most post-concert depression?

(Big thanks to Michael Corbin of everyminute.org for the head’s up on this funny stuff!)

Potter Books

I follow a lot of Harry Potter-related social media accounts and websites because, well, I’m obsessed.

I have multiple versions of the books and copies of the school books in the series; I’ve dressed up for movie premiers; and I have quality lightening bolt jewelry.

Running From Crazy Poster

Mariel Hemingway is sharing her life-long struggles with mental illness, drug addiction, and family suicide (seven relatives — including one of the most influential writers in American history, her grandfather Ernest Hemingway — have committed suicide) in her new documentary, Running from Crazy.

The 51-year-old model and actress teamed up with Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple (Harlan County, USA; American Dream) to create a film that “places an emphasis on suicide awareness and the importance of mental health evaluations” and one that, the two hope, “offers hope for people living with mental illness by showing that they are not alone in their struggles.”
