Thank heaven for music---warning: cheesy

My family is not particularly musical. On family road trips we didn't listen to anything. One of my sisters doesn't listen to music at all which blows my mind. I on the other hand might be clinically dependent on it. Music controls me better than I can control myself. Every note and volume does something to my psyche, which in consequence affects my body. If it weren't for music I don't know if I would have made it through the past 3 years without a breakdown. I really truly believe that, which is why I thank heaven for music.
