Music and Emotion

I also read Girl, Interrupted. A great book for the depressed (yes, that was a bit of sarcasm).

This struck a chord with me:

"When you're sad, you need to hear your sorrow constructed into sound." pg. 48
Why? Because music, though it has always played a huge role in my life, has taken on a whole new meaning in my life. In my struggle with anhedonia, music has done something interesting. It has not helped me feel emotion or express anything; rather, it has become my emotion. I don't know how to explain that.
