Just a thought. I wrote this a couple of months ago in my journal userinfo...

"But you know what? You have to live life for the moment. Take every second and enjoy it. My time at uni will be a constant reminder to me about just how low my mood and quality of life can go. I never intend to put myself in that position again, and neither should anybody else. If you feel upset or sad or angry at something, CHANGE IT. And don't listen to country music, new scientist says it increases the rate of suicides amoungst Americans (the rest of the world not studied)"

...I know it's not much help, but I like how it sounds. I like the message. The problem in my case is that i've changed things as far as they can, and until I get a job and get out of my parent's house and somewhere with the boi, they can't change again. But... Its just something I like to keep on my info.

You're totally right. I'm trying to focus on positive things now too - it's like when you reach the bottom, there are only two ways to go - and since suicide isn't an option for me right now... I'm just going to try again.

I always thought country music was bad, but not this lol. But why? I know it can sound quite melancholic and all that, but I know a lot of other music types that really can bring you mood down to being angry/sad, etc. I have to say, that's a pretty crazy link to make.

I have no real idea, it was a couple of years ago now and I beleive it was reported on one of their sidelines - so they didn't think enough of it to write more then a couple of sentances :D I wondered at the time if it was the music bringing them down or if they turned to country music because they needed a way to express sadness? But *shrugs* I just liked using it as a comment :D

I do think country music is a way of expressing sadness. Maybe a tough country life can lead to suicide, I know living in a rural area that some farmers have committed suicide when times got too tough.
