Grateful Sunday #85: Musicophilia & Depression

When one is depressed, music may “go dead” on one—but this is usually part of an overall flattening or withdrawal of emotion.  What is clear and dramatic, though fortunately rare, is the sudden and isolated loss of the ability to respond to music emotionally, while responding normally to everything else, including the formal structure of music.

Gratitudes:

I’ve certainly been there before.  Thankfully never a complete, sudden, and isolated loss of music as a stimuli, but deep depression makes it hard to care about much of anything.  Even when I know that hey, maybe some quality funk would pull me out of this funk…sometimes it’s just not in me.

Grateful those moments are now so few and far between they’re nearly non-existent.  Cutting out a giant, y’know, depressant, has no question helped that process along.
