More on J.K. Rowling Depression Comments in Edinburgh Student Newspaper Interview

J.K. Rowling

Several weeks ago TLC reported about a lengthy interview J.K. Rowling that appeared in the Edinburgh Student newspaper. In that interview, Jo spoke openly again about her struggles with depression while a single mother and the difficult period in her life before the publication of the Harry Potter novels. The author of the Edinburgh Student interview now has apparently released audio of the interview to main stream media, which are reporting that this audio contains the Harry Potter author saying she had “suicidal thoughts” during this period in her life, before seeking Cognitive Behavioural therapy to help her overcome her depression. While these comments are not in the original published interview (scans here, pdf here), you can read more on these comments via links to The Times and USA today.

Thanks to all who emailed.

Hi everyone,

I think the most important thing JK did was that she realized that this condition is out of her reach and sought treatment for her illness. She chose CBT and found success with that therapy. I think, a lot of depressed people, particularly men do not seek medical help for their depression. And, this leads to worsening of their condition. This happens especially when nobody is there to support the depressed individual. So, immediately consult a doctor, if you are unable to control yourself. This is probably the lesson that we should learn from JK’s life. To know more about depression and its treatment go to http://www.pillwatch.com/category/depression.html. You will most probably find this source to be beneficial.

Thanks.
