There’s a song I found years ago, and loved instantly, on a list songs that Stephanie Meyers says she listened to while writing the Twilight Saga. The song, by Matchbox 20 Unwell resonated with me then and still does to this day although MrH thinks it’s a strange song.
Here’s a link to the video on YouTube.
”I’m not crazy I’m just a little unwell “
Having lived through my breakdown it seemed to me that this song understood what I felt because the lyrics captured the moods perfectly. I may look crazy sometimes- sitting all day in my pyjamas, not showering or bathing, having no energy or motivation, or I may be able to put on a happy face. If I wore my mask well you wouldn’t have known there was anything wrong.
This song and it’s lyrics just spoke to me. There must be other people who feel this way if someone has written a song about it.
Anything but ordinary
I think I’m probably always going to battle depression. It’s going to be at the back of my mind, like a troll under a bridge. It’s always waiting for me to come close enough to grab. Fortunately the coping mechanisms I now have in place keep that troll captive, caged, unable to grab me and drag me into the darkness.
I know that I am a little peculiar too though. Sometimes I burst into song and I have been known to dance at work. I’ll sing sentences as if I’m in a musical and make people laugh with silly behaviour.
I guess what I’m trying to say is I may be crazy at times, but at least I’m not ordinary 😊
