Music saved my life. Many people may say this; however, it really did mine. I was taking medicine for depression, anxiety and many other things, when I was only 13 years old! I had attempted suicide multiple times before that time, but the only escape was my 50 acoustic guitar. I have been playing since I was 8 years old and I started writing music to express my emotions due to the apathetic nature of myself in public. Now I’m 18 and am off of all my medicine, my psychiatrist told me it was probably because I began expressing myself through music and poetry. Music really did save my life. If I didn’t start writing music when I was 14, I would probably be 6 feet under.
