Please don't feel guilty. It's the guilt that makes us feel worse. Keep enjoying your music as much as you can. Music is a real healer for me as well. I listen to music all day if I can. Life may be painful right now, but we don't know what tomorrow or the next day or the day after that will bring. You have to hold on to the hope that in the days ahead the pain will start to diminish. I know it's easier said than done. I was where you are, and I'm glad that I hung on because it does get better.
> God, I feel like some sort of Junkie. A few glasses later and I'm fine. I have some Senegalese music playing in the background, and even if the world doesn't exactly look rosy, I think I might survive - at least for a few hours. Ohhhhh! But I feel so guilty. Why should I feel guilty about doing the one thing that makes it bearable, even if in a temporary way? Life is just too painful to keep going, I think.
