    First time back in the studio after a long season of depression #Effexor #Depression #Anxiety #creative #musician

    Today it’s been 3 weeks since I’ve been feeling better. Long story but I came off Effexor too fast, crashed, lost my relationship, list my pet dog , close family member died. I have had 8 months off work with panic attacks and severe depression.

    Once I got the dose right I instantly started feeling better. I found a job and have completed my first week with flying colours. Now the creatively is returning, I hear songs and lyrics in my mind and I need to get it out into a recording. My counseller said one of the markers of my mental health returning is a surge of creativity. Creatives need to be able to create, it takes huge amounts of energy and focus. Sometimes I spend 6 hours in the studio to finally admit the song I’m working on is just not that good.

    Although I feel tired I’m going to set up a recording space in my cousins studio and see what comes out. I know that I need to relax and remove any pressure. Try to enjoy the process as much as possible. I’ve decided it’s more healthy to work a part time job and do music on the side - as opposed to full time and have all the pressure of financial, performance, promotion, record labels, touring, social media that it brings.

    Wish me luck!

    Is Music Actually Killing Me? #musician #Anxiety

    I’m Jenilee and I’ve been playing bass for twenty years in a bunch of different genres : rock bluegrass jazz and classical. I was a classical bass performance major in college and now I’m still in the local symphony. I love listening to music and thinking about the experiences I’ve had playing but every time symphony week comes around I get serious anxiety. I feel like I’m terrible at playing and have an emotional breakdown, last night I came home crying and throwing shit around and thinking maybe if I threw myself down the stairs or drove into oncoming traffic I wouldn’t have to play the concert. It affects my relationship with my boyfriend : he says oh this happens every time and everything turns out ok. but I don’t want to live like this anymore. he says this is an insult to him and there’s nothing more he can say or do to help. he said he’s sick of having to reassure me every two or three days. does this sound healthy? I’ve just been playing so long...I don’t know if I could bring myself to quit although I’ve thought about it many times...

    How I get through the day #Music

    I get through the day with music.

    I'm a professional musician that owns a music school. I teach trumpet, piano, french horn and saxophone. If it wasn't for music I don't know what I would do.
