music save the life

Listen. That thing you love so much—that thing that keeps saving you? You go ahead and love the hell out of that thing. Take up your space and experience that joy without any embarrassment. It’s yours.

So let me tell y'all a thing. A very personal thing. About just how amazing and life saving medication can be.
This pink little pill is called Prazosin. And what does it do you ask? It makes it so I can sleep at peace. Since my mom died my already bad nightmares became a horror show. I was maybe sleeping 2 hours before I woke up only to fall back into nightmares again. Reliving the worst day of my life on repeat. Over and over. The most horrific graphic details. Even more vivid thanks to my muscle relaxer.
Now I take this fun little pill once a night. And I haven’t had a nightmare since. I get to dream about Jason Todd and fun stuff again. I actually get peace from the trauma for a few hours instead of spending all day and all night reliving it.
Medication can’t fix everything. But it made my life so much easier. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it

Songs That Make Jenn’s Heart Skip A Beat  How to Save a Life by The Fray

Step one, you say, “We need to talk.”
He walks, you say, “Sit down. It’s just a talk.”
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came

Where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best
‘Cause after all you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you’ve told him all along
Pray to God, he hears you
And I pray to God, he hears you

And where did I go wrong? I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you’ve followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he’ll say he’s just not the same
And you’ll begin to wonder why you came
