I feel like I can't listen to music these days. Anybody else feel the same?

Lately I've been stressed and sometimes upset but I find it hard to enjoy listening to my favorite songs when I'm stressed out or upset. Is this normal?

It’s unfortunate, but yes, it’s normal; often difficult to enjoy regular pursuits like music and hobbies during bouts of depression—which perhaps this is.
Hope you’re feeling better soon. 🥺
[c=004A59]Definitely. When you're going thru hard times, all your favorite things get put on hold. You just can't enjoy them the same. This will pass.[/c]

That's understandable. I went through a traumatic time a few years ago and I couldn't listen to any music that provoked an emotional response, I had to listen to more cerebral stuff for a while. But don't worry, this will probably pass. 😊👍

[@1129036,MyLegGuy2020] I think we all do sometimes especially if tired, stressed or if we're lacking vitamins etc. Can you still enjoy film and dvds?

[@602378,Fluffybull] films yes

[@1129036,MyLegGuy2020] It's good you still have films. Books, music and films are the best "escapism". I have several boxed sets on dvd that I watch over and over. It's like meeting up with old friends! 👍😊

I have to be listening to music all the time...
except when I'm feeling too emotional.
When I'm all up in my feelings, music usually makes me feel worse.

Perfectly normal to me.

I like music on every day. I have the radio on while I'm working. The songs I share on SW are ones I've heard during the day. I just like to see how popular they are here.

Sorry you are so stressed.

And now I'm attempting to listen to my playlist but now playback issues

[@1129036,MyLegGuy2020] and loud noises outside. Its like I can’t take it anymore!
[c=004A59]It must be something contagious, in the air. I'm too stressed to listen to my playlist tonight, but I was fine last night.[/c]
