I was recently diagnosed with an anxiety/panic disorder. After watching PJ20, I decided (like NYYIronHorse) to listen to more than just "Jeremy" or "Better Man", etc.. Suffice it to say since really getting into their music, I haven't had the need to take my xanax (it's been about 2-3 months since I last took it). My panic attacks have subsided for the most part and I don't have much anxiety anymore. Can't really explain it and maybe it sounds a bit cooky, but Pearl Jam's music calms me down. Thanks PJ!
I was also diagnosed with PTSD and bad anxiety, It's not kooky. Pearl Jam does have medicinal qualities to them and you can always raise your dose as high as you want. Glad you're doing better.
Me too, my anxiety was intense, I was a wreck and wasted most of my twenties, from 17-26 I did NOTHING other than be sad. Perscribed Drugs were not helping me, It was tough, nearly didn't make it out of my depression. Pearl jam lyrics made me confront my emotions and reflect, it hurt a lot, the lyrics are raw and truthful. I found a lot of messages I tried to apply to my own life. i think it was the thing that saved me, some examples that still help me to this day ...
Life wasted, Present Tense, Breakerfall, In hiding, Thumbing my way, Bee girl ... these all help me get through the bad times, and kick my ass into shape. I am on a totally different path in life now thanks to PJ.
Even last week, was getting nervous about making the final leap, Ive been 'handed down' a gardening business, the nerves are setting in about wether to accept or not ... my go to tune was
life wasted - 'why swim the channel just to get this far, halfway there why would you turn around?'
I don't ignore thier messages & i accepted. I went off to start studying Horticulture 2 years ago after PJ inspired me to do it.. They really have motivated me to live a better life
Sooo happy others are finding the same effect. Magic isn't it
