Music Helps Me, A Person With Bipolar Disorder

Music has always been a love of mine. I am not musically gifted or anything. I just like to listen to it. When I was old enough I began going to live music shows. Some bands I knew, some I didn’t. It didn’t matter. It gave me a feeling of being part of something bigger.

Now, music serves a different purpose. It distracts me when I am anxious. When I had an iPod, I brought it to psych appointments with me. I listened to soothing music – I created a playlist – while I waited to be called back to the office.

I listen to music still when I need to relax. In my car, with earbuds, in whatever way┬áI can, it allows me to escape into a world where bipolar disorder doesn’t exist.
