JK Rowling speaks out about the depression that inspired her to write Harry Potter books

Best-selling author JK Rowling has spoken out about the depression and difficult childhood that inspired her to write the Harry Potter books. At one point she suffered so severely with depression that she woke every morning expecting to find her baby daughter dead. Joanne Rowling made the revelation after agreeing to let a film crew follow her for a year in the life of documentary during the release of her latest novel Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. She admitted the Harry Potter series began as an attempt to reclaim her childhood and even ends the series by giving Harry Potter a family. She said: “I was very frightened of my father for a very long time and also tried desperately to get his approval and make him happy. ” Then there came a point I couldn’t do that any more so I haven’t had any contact with my father now for a few years.”

Rowling’s mother Anne was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis when Rowling was 15 and died in 1990 completely unaware of the success her daughter was about to become. The mother of three admits her mother’s painful death influenced her writing. “It has seeped into every part of the books,” she said. “She would have odd losses of feelings in limbs, her balance was poor for a long time and then it got worse and worse and she decided it was time to visit the doctor. “She had a very virulent form of the illness and at that time there were no drug treatments at all.” The hit author opened her heart by admitting she regrets not seeing her mother’s body before her funeral. “I wanted to see her but my father didn’t want me to see her and I mistakenly agreed not to,” she said. “I deeply regret that. I really wish I’d seen her. It didn’t matter what she looked like. It would have made thing easier.”

Depression hit Rowling when her first marriage to a television journalist broke down after just two years. She had moved to Portugal to teach English and gave birth to her first daughter Jessica. She said: “I’d had a short and quite catastrophic marriage. “I had to get my baby back to Britain and re-build us a life and adrenaline kept me going. “It was only when I came to rest it hit me what a complete mess I had made of my life. That hit me quite hard. We were as skint as you can be without being homeless and at that point I was definitely clinically depressed. That was characterized my a numbness, a coldness and an inability to believe you will feel happy again. All the color drained out of life.”

Rowling hit an all-time low when she convinced herself something awful was destined to happen to her two-year-old daughter. She said: “I loved Jessica very very much and was terrified something was going to happen to her. “I’d gone into that very depressive mind set where everything has gone wrong so this one good thing in my life will now go wrong as well. “It was almost a surprise to me every morning that she was still alive. I kept expecting her to die. It was a bad bad time.”

Film crews took Rowling back to the flat a few miles from Edinburgh where she overcame depression by writing first novel Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Tears began to flow as she walked into the small lounge room where she first put pen to paper. She said: “This is really where I turned my life around completely. My life changed so much in this flat. I feel I really became myself here. Everything was stripped away. I’d made such a mess of things. I just thought I want to write so I wrote the book. What was the worst that could happen? It could get turned down by every publisher in Britain. Big deal.” As she walked into the bedroom she spotted the whole Harry Potter series on the current owner’s bookshelf. “If it all disappeared this is where I would come back to,” she said. “Because it’s such a well worn part of my story now it’s a big yawn to hear how I wrote it as if it was some publicity stunt I did for a year, but it was my life and it was very hard. “I didn’t know it was going to be this fairy tale resolution. Coming back here is just full of ghosts.”

Rowling revealed how she wished to be a writer since her childhood but says she never expected the fame that has come with it. “I wished to be published and I wished more than anything in the world to be a writer,” she said. “It never occurred to me in a million years that people would search my dustbins, put a long lens camera on me on the beach or bang on the door of one of my oldest friends and offer her money to talk about me.” Rowling has ruled out writing any more Harry Potter books but let slip she is working on a new novel. “It’s definitely time to stop now. I don’t want to write any more Hogwarts books,” she said. “I’m happier now than I’ve ever been in my life.

Rowling described her new novel as a political fairy tale. She said: “I’m not in a mad hurry to publish, I would like to take my time. I’ve lived with deadlines for ten years and I’m currently able to luxuriate that no one’s really expecting it so I feel as if I’ve gone right back to the beginning where I was with the Philosopher’s Stone in my own private world. “I’d really like to enjoy that sole possession for a little while,” she said on ITV’s JK Rowling, A Year in the Life.

Wearing too much perfume – signals depression

As retailers well know, smell has a profound effect on mood and memory. They have used them to induce shoppers to buy certain products. Now, a team at Tel Aviv University have found that certain diseases cause the body to attack the olfactory system which governs the ability to detect smells. This means an impaired sense of smell could be a pointer to serious conditions. The team suggest depression could have a biological cause rather than being just a psychological disorder and other studies have confirmed patients with depression have a loss of sense of smell and when their condition is treated their senses improve.

Prof Yehuda Shoenfeld, of the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University, an expert in autoimmune disorders like arthritis, lupus and rheumatism has uncovered evidence that women who wear too much perfume may be suffering from depression. Their sense of smell appears to be impaired so they have to use more scent. He found that one of the autoantibodies attacked the olfactory system weakening the sense of smell and inducing depression. “Our scientific findings suggest that women who are depressed are also losing their sense of smell, and may overcompensate by using more perfume.

“We also believe that depression has biological roots and may be an immune system response to certain physiological cues,” he said.

The findings can be applied more widely than just to patients suffering with autoimmune disorders, Prof Shoenfeld said. “People who are depressed seem to respond well to aromatherapy. Certain smells seem to help them overcome the effects of the biological factors, suggesting that depression may have a biological cause. “I think that science is able to show that aromatherapy might not be just for quacks. After all, some of these remedies have been used since the time of the Egyptians to treat organic diseases.” He suggested that a “smell test” could be used by doctors to help diagnose depression as well as autoimmune diseases. Other studies have questioned if depression is a result of a reduced ability to smell rather than the other way around as the condition is also linked to weight loss as people lose their appetite. Scientists have also used electrodes to establish that the brains of people with depression are less responsive to smells and picked up scents later and at stronger concentrations.

And now there’s a new perfume that sells for $5,000 per bottle.
In the United States alone perfume is a $6-billion-a-year industry with products ranging from below $12.99 to $5,000. Is there a difference between a ridiculously overpriced perfume and an inexpensive drugstore brand: or is it all in the packaging? Is there a difference between a $5,000 bottle of perfume and the drugstore special for $12.99? Larry Nielsen of Microanalytics Laboratories tested the two bottles to see whether any difference could be detected. “We could categorize the yellow one as being richer, has a wider variety of components in it, some spices, some animal-type odors in it, and the pink one — it’s just not as rich,” Nielsen said.
There are classic perfumes, celebrity eau du toilets, day scents and date-night essences. Now, Mane, the company that developed many of those famous fragrances for other brands, is introducing the first perfume under its own name. It’s called Yu, which means rain in Chinese. And it can be yours for just $5,000 at the high-end department store Bergdorf Goodman.

The perfumer who developed Yu (the $5,000 scent) told us how she came up with the smell. “It’s really the idea of the perfumer trying to put together the ingredients to tell a story in a very harmonious way,” Mane Perfumery’s Cecile Krakower said. “The great thing about Yu is that I really had the luxury of time to handpick, or should I say nose pick, every ingredient for its various quality.”

It is a scent that won over The New York Times’ resident perfume critic, Chandler Burr. “It’s actually very interesting, aesthetically gorgeous,” Burr said as he spritzed the scent. “You can smell the money in it. It’s almost a fresh quality, like using a very good toothpaste.” While he is impressed with the product, he said the price might not reflect the quality of the product. “$5,000 is marketing, just increases the marketing campaign.”
There’s more to the perfume industry than the money behind it. It’s an art and a science, so the next logical step was the lab. Is there a difference between a $5,000 bottle of perfume and the drugstore special for $12.99? Larry Nielsen of Microanalytics Laboratories tested the two bottles to see whether any difference could be detected. “We could categorize the yellow one as being richer, has a wider variety of components in it, some spices, some animal-type odors in it, and the pink one — it’s just not as rich,” Nielsen said.

Actor PATRICK DEMPSEY suffered crippling bouts of depression

Actor PATRICK DEMPSEY suffered crippling bouts of depression in his youth when his acting career failed to take off. The Grey’s Anatomy star, 41, was convinced he was tipped for Hollywood stardom after his initial success in hit 1987 comedy Can’t Buy Me Love. But the actor found it difficult to stay positive when he failed to land any more high profile roles. Dempsey’s marriage to his former manager Rocky Parker – a woman 26 years older than him – also collapsed and it led to a period of severe depression for the star. He says, “It was a very difficult time. I was insecure. I felt I was no good. “It took me two days to get psyched and it was very hard to stay positive. There were years when I wasn’t working and people didn’t care about me.” Dempsey – who divorced Parker in 1994 after seven years of marriage – has since re-married and had three children with make-up artist Jill Fink. He is now enjoying a career revival after being cast in hit U.S. drama Grey’s Anatomy.

Depression: 44 years marks the start of mid-life depression. Study says it lasts years

Middle_age_depressionResearchers from Warwick University in Britain and Dartmouth College in the U.S. who analyzed data on two million people from 70 nations found an extraordinarily consistent patterns of depression and happiness.

They have confirmed something suspected for years: that middle aged men and women are more likely to experience depression than any other period in their life. Though most of us enjoy a happy start and end to life, there is a rough patch in the middle, topping out at the age of 44 for many. They see depression at the bottom of the U shape and happiness at the two ends. They also believe the depression valley lasts for several years.

From Australia and Italy to Nicaragua and Azerbaijan, analyzing data from over two million people from 80 countries.the same U-shape was observed. The good news is that while during the middle years we are more likely to feel depressed, we get over it and can experience the same degree of happiness as a 20 year old. Previous studies have suggested psychological well-being stays relatively flat and consistent as we age, but this report turns former studies upside down. The study, Is Well-Being U-Shaped Over The Life Cycle?  will be published in the forthcoming Social Science & Medicine journal.

Using a sample of a million Britons, researchers found both men and women faced their biggest dip in happiness at 44, regardless of marital status, wealth or children. In the U.S., by contrast, there was a big difference between the sexes, with unhappiness peaking at about 40 for women and 50 for men. Warwick’s Professor Andrew Oswald said signs of mid-life depression are found in all kinds of people. “Some suffer more than others but in our data the average effect is large. It happens to men and women, to single and married people, to rich and poor, and to those with and without children.”

Oswald admits that what causes the U-shaped curve is unknown, but added: “It looks from the data like something happens deep inside humans. “For the average person in the modern world, the dip in mental health and happiness comes on slowly, not suddenly in a single year. “For the average person, the dip in mental health and happiness comes on slowly, not suddenly in a single year. But encouragingly, by the time you are 70, if you are still fit then on average you are as happy and mentally healthy as a 20-year-old,” Oswald said.

According to Oswald there are a number of theories why this happens. “The first theory is that when you are young you have high aspirations and then in middle age have to learn to quell them. After all we cannot all be captain of the national football team or a rock star. The 30s and 40s are therefore painful times when reality sets in but when you get older you’ve learn to accept yourself.

The second theory is that people who are happier live longer. Therefore if the unhappy people have died younger then those who remain are happier.

The third theory is that we learn to count our blessings when we get older. We see friends and family die and we see bad things happen and are just happy to be alive.”

HEATH Ledger was battling drug addiction and depression in the lead-up to his tragic death.

The acclaimed actor was found naked and unconscious in his $26,000-a-month Manhattan apartment, surrounded by prescription anti-anxiety and sleeping pills. Ledger’s parents Kim and Sally and sister Kate said his death was a terrible accident. “He was a down-to-earth, generous, kind-hearted, life-loving and unselfish individual who was an inspiration to many,” his father said outside the family home in Perth.

New York police sources said the signs pointed to either an accidental overdose or suicide. The actor, whose final performance will be his highly anticipated role as The Joker in the latest Batman blockbuster, The Dark Knight, due out later this year, was found by his housekeeper.

Ledger reportedly spent several days at a drug rehab clinic battling an addiction to heroin following his split with fiancee Michelle Williams in September. The pair have a two-year-old daughter, Matilda. Sources close to the superstar said he was desperately battling drugs, alcohol and depression. “To tell you the truth . . . we saw it coming,” one friend told a US website. “Things were very dark. His one joy was Matilda. Everything else was misery for him . . . unfortunately he was too late in getting help.”

Ledger was 28.
