Music is something that from a very early age I found a lot of comfort and joy in. Whether it was playing the recorder back in secondary school or playing around with a keyboard, it’s a thing that I can lose myself in.
Dealing with chronic pain can sometimes feel like the world is grinding by you and that you’re struggling simply to get through the day. Lately my shoulder has been very painful and listening to bubbly K-pop music was the only thing that got me through that experience without me totally losing my mind.
Music can be calming, it can take you to lands far away, away from the stress and pains associated with daily life. It’s something that I enjoy listening to and making, despite not being that great about it.
