Everybody

But You don't gotta play an instrument for it to be a therapy. Listening to music can work well too.

This is a great topic. On the subject of the best artists having depression or bipolar disorder, I'm wondering if anyone here is familiar with the music of, or a fan of, Frederic Chopin. I play the piano and he is my favorite composer. His music is hauntingly beautiful, and even within any one piece you may hear the effects of his bipolar disorder. It may start with a beautiful, calming opening, only to dive into a chaotic, frightening place, and then come back out again in a dreamy ending. I have read biographies on him, and apparently he suffered greatly from being bipolar, very shy, and misunderstood by those who knew him. He also had tuberculosis which they say may have caused some of the frantic panic attacks he had, as well as some terrifying visions he reported. Interestingly enough, it was during some of his darkest hours when he wrote some of his most beautiful music, and vice versa. He is a composer who most definitely appeals to those of us dealing with our own demons, as some of his are very vocal within his music.

Music is one of my "drugs" when it comes to climbing out of the abyss. I have considered music therapy as a career but I'm not sure if I'm willing to put the long hours into the schooling it requires. More power to those who do it.
