I slowly am regaining reality, and from being a person who has always loved and played music, when I first got DP/DR, I did not even listen to music. But now, that "feeling" when you hear music which resonates with ones soul, is slowly coming back, and I find myself listening to music more often now. Soon I will get back to playing the guitar and keyboard.

Maybe, an expert can look at music therapy as part of a holistic healing process for us DP/DR'd, to bring ones emotions back, or bring us back from the dissociative feeling...???

It is well documented that music therapy is used to affect different parts of the brain. It is also associated with a decrease in depression, improved mood, and a reduction in state anxiety. See http://en.wikipedia....i/Music_therapy

So music is definitely a healer!

I'd love to be listening to more music but I get tinnitus, a low gushing sound in my right ear so I have to have it really quiet.

I play guitar and actually it really helps me feel connected. I can feel when I look out the window whilst I play that I'm feeling more normal. But I always get tinnitus afterwards for a while so I tend not to play much.

I'm also sensitive to noises sometimes, so they feel like they go right through my head and make me jumpy. Happens less and less though now as I'm getting closer to full recovery. I can't wait to be writing and recording again.

music helps me express myself and it's great to find a band/songwriter that seems to know exactly what your going through. I LOVE the Shins, The Verve (the drugs don't work!) and Radiohead!

Great depression music (or relaxing): team sleep, ELLIOT SMITH, Nick Drake, some Radiohead, shins, Peter Gabriel
Great feel-good music: Jack Johnson, Pavement, 311, Built to Spill, Dave Mathews, Modest Mouse, Smashing Pumpkins(siamese dream prefferably)
Great Frustration music: Sonic Youth, The Pixies, Violent Femmes, NIN

... to name a few of my favorites...
