Music Therapy

Wow, how time flies by. In 2019 I was formally diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. Since then it’s been a roller-coaster of trying different medications and talk therapy. In 2023 I can happily say that I am doing much better. (Though I still struggle with the occasional depression or symptoms.)

I subscribe to a music streaming service Spotify. It is nice to see how my music has changed over the years, as they have an option to see your top songs of the year. I feel I am more fortunate than many people with the disorder who struggle with some of the symptoms, like hearing voices, or delusional thinking.

I am so thankful to have discovered music as a form of therapy. What are some songs that you listen to? Since I was diagnosed, I love listening to songs that have uplifting lyrics or are inspiring. Link to some of my songs if anyone is interested:

Dealing with Uncertainty

Currently struggling and could use some kind words.

I have an eventual move-out from my family home of April 2024. I have some plans but I can’t help feeling like I need to better prepare myself.

We are currently looking into CRR or what I call mental health housing. Would anyone have any experience with this? It does not look amazing but if it will keep me from being homeless, then I welcome it.

I face some uncertainty with my disability (SSDI) case. Does anyone have any recommendations for how to prepare for the court hearing? I have not heard from my lawyer in a while and am not sure what to expect.

As usual, music remains solace with dealing with my experiences. Lately I’ve been listening to a song Chill Kill by Red Velvet. I welcome if anyone has any recommendations for things to listen to.

Thanks for reading.

Honey 🍯 🎵

I like my girls just like I like my honey, sweet
A little selfish
I like my women like I like my money, green
A little jealous
'Cause I'm a beautiful wreck
A colorful mess, but I'm funny
Oh, I'm a heartbreak vet
With a stone-cold neck, yeah, I'm charmin' 🖤

Growth Motivation Songs

#MentalHealth #Depression #Schizophrenia #SchizoaffectiveDisorder #Autism #musictherapy #Song #GrowthPlaylist

Hello. My therapist tasked me with coming up with a growth mixtape, to help motivate for getting a new job and finding a new apartment. Does anyone have any recommendations for songs to add?

Does this song speak to anyone?

This song was (and still is) a comfort for me. When I was really low and could only see hopelessness and believed that life would never improve, this song was a reminder that my story was still unwritten. I’ve seen life change and I’m so glad for holding on ❤️#Depression #BipolarDepression #Anxiety #musictherapy #Hope #Migraine

Found accidentally but amazing and inspirational to think the next generation of young men and women can be so open emotionally so early in life.

Music is one of the outlets I use to to release and free my mind when it's overflowing. I resonate a lot with Mac Miller and his lyrics ..I also discovered this descriptor today and I love it:

--The experience is called frisson (pronounced free-sawn), a French term meaning “aesthetic chills,” and it feels like waves of pleasure running all over your skin.--♬

We are all a little lost, aren't we?

Have you seen Nightbirde's audition in AGT? She's a wonderful being. She has won many at this point of this competition and has won me as well.

While the judges were interviewing her before her performance, she said “It’s OK if you’re lost. We’re all a little lost, and it’s alright.” that hit me hard. I froze. I know that this resonates to me in a lot of ways.

I just learned recently that the company I am working for was sold and will start its transition in 2022. This big change will define 'loyalty' as people who were working in this company for years MIGHT face unemployment, including me. I know change could bring good things as well but mind wandered and rolled over the hills non-stop. The what-ifs poured in.

I got worried and of course anxious. I am in a middle of building the virtual training library of the said company. Usually, based from what I have read and experience, training is a list priority during the transition phase. It is considered as a cost in the corporate settings. And my mind still rolling, no directions at all. From being a little-to-lost to a totally-lost being. Again, heading to somewhere I do not know.

This song is keeping me 'okay' or as most of us would say 'getting by' in life now. This song reminds me that it is okay. it is okay. IT IS OKAY... everything will become better. I am writing this essay to help me process it, to at least be brave and face that this is going to happen, it is my reality at the moment. I know it is not easy but, everything will be okay again.

My heart goes to all of you who feels like they are a little to lost, or like me, totally lost in their life right now. There is help available for you, be brave. I know you can do it. Take that small little step to become better. I know you can do it. We can do it.

You can listen to her music - It's Okay by Nightbirde on this link - #Nightbirde #Itsokay #Anxiety #Depression #Music #musictherapy #TerminalIllness #UncurableDiseases

I do not know what I would do if we have no music. The truth is, music is so much more than music. In my eyes a song can be like a good friend ,like a big hug or a voice that keeps telling you that’s okay ,that they understand your thoughts and feelings.. it’s amazing how people can express all the thoughts in my head in a song and you feel like ur soul is singing in that moment.
Do have that one (or maybe more than one) song you see yourself in (~100%)? Or do u have a song that helped you in your darkest moments? Or that makes you happy everytime u hear it ? I’d like to know your answers bec I think I’m not the only one feeling like this. #Music #Depression #MentalHealth #Anxiety #warrior #musictherapy #notalone
