I've been a victim of depression for about 10 years now.
The feeling is often overwhelming and hard to cope with.
I find myself sleeping sometimes 18 hours a day.
for a temporary cure, I would call close friends and talk to them.
Unfortunately though, I felt like I was pouring all of my problems on them.
The feeling only added to the depression.
I then took up music.
I play the drums, piano, and guitar.
When I feel depressed, I write poetry and them music to my poetry.
Needless to say, I write a lot of music and lyrics.
 
For a long time, I thought I was the only kid like this.
 
Does anyone else here feel the way I do?
Do you cope the way I do?
I'd LOVE to hear your experiences!
 
I wish you all well!

I paint when I get depressed. You can do some wonderful work when you are depressed. Some of the best works have been done that way. Keep with the music. It will guide you through.
