Stress, Pain, Worry? Music

A friend who has been ill while helping a sick daughter and trying to run her house and her daughter’s at the same time wrote me today and said life had been hectic which has prevented her from listening in to our favorite karaoke site recordings, said:

“…. still waiting to be called in for surgery. getting a little worse by the day and more painful so I’ve been slacking lol…I’ll listen …tonight once everyone is in bed and I have a few moments….”

My response was the following:

I can understand about life’s demand. sorry about the pain and delayed surgery.   Bee Armstrong of Louisiana is my Si ng Snap patron. Though she doesn’t work at nursing now, she has for years been an in-home health nurse to the elderly. And she understands the benefits of music and health. For years she’s used Sing Snap song recordings to benefit her elderly and infirm patients.

Also, a sister-in-law of my younger brother is a music therapist for the elderly.

One man told me that only music helped him cope with pain.
