Music is widely acknowledged as a therapeutic mechanism for people suffering with a wide range of different health issues. From time to time I like to share the music that helps me cope. In a recent post (Like a Moth to a a Flame) I mentioned my "Wallowing" playlist, which I turn to when I'm feeling especially dark and full of angst. Though it is somewhat contrary to the idea behind music as therapy because it doesn't lift the spirit as much as celebrate darkness, there are some great tunes here.
