21 Depression Truths

I normally don’t like sites of this type because of their clickbait-y links. But this one definitely struck a chord.

21 Depression Truths

If you’ve read my blog archives you’ve probably come across some posts about my own dealings with depression. It sucks and it’s something I still deal with on a daily, sometimes hourly, basis. I’m still not taking meds, not because I don’t believe in them but because through talk therapy I’ve developed tools to cope with depression. Some days are better than others. When I catch it early it’s a lot easier to get out of that mindset than if I miss it and have to crawl out of it after several days.

Some New Music

Came across some really cool music about a week ago. The group is called Wardruna and they’re a Norwegian music group founded by Einar Kvitrafn Selvik  and their song lyrics are in Old Norse. They also make most of the traditional instruments they play and use various natural sounds like fire, water, thunder, etc.  Some of my favorites so far.

 

 

They have 2 albums out now Yggdrasil and Runaljod – Gap Var Ginnunga and one in the works. Each of the three albums deal with 8 runes of the Elder Futhark. It really is an interesting listen.
