Ok, on a day when I have doctor’s appointments, I get depressed. And it’s getting even more triggering to me. As a person who has survived pretty well with bipolar disorder for 25 years, weathered bad and good times and irreversible side effects, the illnesses mushroom. Oh, if I knew then what I know now. That’s why I want to write a book. Hey, I could write the whole thing in doctor’s offices waiting rooms!!!
To balance the morbidity I get a good workout in in between, before or afterward.
Here’s what got me thru
“Rage Against the Machine” The ever soulful “The Ghost of Tom Joad”
Gary Jules “Mad World” also done by Tears for fears
Ice Cube “It was a good day.”
Led Zepplin “Boogie With Stu.”
a lot of people don’t get rap. They drive home their oppression. I would think anyone with a mental illness would understand the idea of being underneath a power pushing them down. Here’s my fav lyric
“Today I didn’t need to use my AK, I’d say today was a Good Day.”
ha. Power lifting and treadmill reading The NYT Sunday Edition. The upper balances the downers.
Or try this: DC Hardcore Band Fugazi’s classic rage fueled “Waiting Room.”
