Depression and the Musician ,song writer performing artist it affects. Alright I knew if I talked about this I would have to tell my readers that I suffer from depression it has effected me all of my life . I did not know until I was about forty years old I just thought that the way I felt and my mood swings were just the person I had become from surviving my child hood which was not a good one .  As I reflect back on my life I now understand how it effected my life it effected life decisions it effected love decisions and left me fearful of many things . I remember exactly when I realized I was suffering from depression I was talking to a friend we were having a serious discussion and I broke into tears she asked me what was wrong so I told her I have this deep rooted sadness  that keeps coming back to haunt me she explained to me what was going on with  so off to the doctor I went . Ok I know that Doctors have there place when you are injured BUT I do not believe that taking pills to control it is not the answer neither is drinking yourself into a stupor to make it go away believe me I have tried. To day I am content I use song writing to release my inner demons and cannabis as a medicine when I need it the two work in unison with each other , writing is a therapy it allows me talk about my illness and its effects and has been responsible for some amazing songs . I do not say this will work for everyone but it works for me and allows me to live a normal drug free life you see I do not look at weed as a drug but more as an organic way of living and dealing with the low spots in life. Alright if you do suffer from this illness DO NOT SUFFER ALONE talk to someone talk to a friend a stranger a doctor any one this disease effects millions yet people are afraid people will think you are crazy that couldn’t be further from the truth .
