Hi. My name is Andrea and this is my story with the ukulele.
More than two years ago I was diagnosed with depression, my process was quite difficult, I lost more than 15 kilos in just one month and I was in my last month of university. As I was able to finish my degree but the depression was stronger than me, the most difficult day of my life was when I decided to end it by taking all my antidepressants, thanks to this I was hospitalized and from there I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital, it was too much time sad and difficult for me, they did not even allow me to see my family and guilt plagued me every day.
They managed to stabilize me, but four months ago the depression returned despite the fact that I continue with antidepressants, my psychiatrist diagnosed me: major depression, which is when depression resists the medication.
In December it was my birthday and I had wanted to learn to play the ukulele for a long time thanks to a girl who got on the truck, I did not know the instrument but it seemed wonderful, she went up to play a stereo soda song, it sounded beautiful and I immediately arrived at my house to look on the internet: what are small guitars called. "Ukulele" from there I knew that I had to have one, but there was a big problem, because of my depression I didn't consider myself good for anything and much less for an instrument, but my mother gave me my ukulele. It was beautiful but I was scared to try something that maybe I couldn't achieve. But as I said before, my depression returned and with the quarantine it is worse. So a month ago I decided to learn on my own, I am glad I tried because I do not realize the hours, sometimes my fingers hurt due to lack of habit but every time I see the small advances that I have, I am a little happy about soul.
I can not go out, so I learn at home, the first video I saw was one of her YouTube channel, I will never forget it, the girl is called the same as I Andrea, and the video I saw is titled: how to learn to play the ukulele in 8 minutes. I thought it was magnificent, but quite complicated, so I abandoned my ukulele for a few months, just opened it to see how beautiful it was. I also have anxiety, so my hands are shaking too much, but one day I opened it just to look at it, I smelled it, I touched it, and I decided to try to scratch it a bit pretending to play in front of an audience, I closed my eyes and tried to play "telescope" de cage the elephant. I could not help but get excited and decided to start learning, maybe it is not good, but the moment of joy when learning something new is surprising. Most of the day I feel bad, but I get up and the first thing I do during the day is learn a little more.
The days have passed, I have learned the notes, arrange it correctly, strumming (just a few because they still complicate me) but I have learned to feel joy touching my heart.
Now I have learned the song of Josean Log (chachacha) which I would like to share when I have learned it completely.
I know it won't fix my depression but I can convey a little of what I have light through the music my ukulele produces.Thank you very much to all for reading.
