New to the group...

Hi everyone I am new to the group & Active Rain!  First off I will just say that I absolutely love music!!  I grew up in a house that loved music. My dad was in a local band most of my childhood and he played electric guitar.  I remember being very small and listening to music on MTV, you know, when they actually played music in the late 80's early 90's.  :)  I also love how music can change my mood!  If I am having a crummy day, I just listen to upbeat music and sing along, not very well, and that almost always helps!  When you sing and listen to great music, it is hard to stay upset! I have actually had some experience with that lately.  I have been, for some reason unknown, having panic attacks while driving.  They were getting so bad I had to pull of the road a couple of times...not fun!  So, here lately I have been keeping my mind distracted by listening CD's and songs that help keep my mind on the lyrics of what I am singing and not the fact that I could have a panic attack! IT'S WORKING!  Music is great!

 Nice to meet everyone!

Welcome, Sarah! I feel relatively new to this group, too, though I have been on ActiveRain since November. Music has a way of pulling people together who might not otherwise meet. It's been a fun group, and I think you'll enjoy it. I still kind of feel like the new kid in the classroom, so I if you ever feel like that, you are not alone.

That's great that music is helping you with your anxiety. I had panic attacks right after both my kids were born. The doctors decided it was post partum related, and they did eventually go away. I'm sure this is just a temporary thing, and how nice that the solution is music!
