Music and bipolar disorder: Is there a connection? In my life with bipolar 2 disorder, music has played a significant role, not only as an outlet but as a way of understanding my emotions. Music can change my mood, or allow me to express my feelings on a much deeper level.

How Music Affects My Bipolar Disorder

It can be extreme. Sometimes I will analyze a song for hours and the emotional tone of the singer with the intent of understanding what they are feeling. I believe many people with bipolar disorder, depression or anxiety have a special relationship with music. In this video, I share how music impacts my life as someone living with bipolar 2 disorder.

Hi !
my daughter has mood disorder and she loves to sing her music. when she is in an anxious dip of low mood she sings children songs from her childhood, these songs help her come through the low mood and we then find she becomes really tried and then she falls asleep, music is really the best for our daughter.
