James Middleton, Duchess Kate and Pippa Middleton's younger brother, has discovered that he has been working with depression since 2016.

Posted in Saturday Daily mail, Middleton, 31, wrote that he had struggled with the symptoms that were about two years ago, describing his inertia, communicating with his family and close friends as he sank "gradually deeper into despair of morality".

"I know that I am richly blessed and lived in a privileged life. But it did not endanger me for depression," he wrote. "It's difficult to describe the situation. It's not just sadness. It's a disease, brain cancer."

He stops saying that he has recovered, saying he has understood his condition.

James Middleton says he knows he lives in a privileged life, but "it didn't mention me for depression."

"Although I never said that I was cured … now I understand it and, through professional help, have developed strategies to help overcome. Today I feel a new sense of purpose and life."

A British businessman says he did not ask for help until the end of 2017 after treating cardiac arrhythmia caused by stress and anxiety medication. He says he also suffers from adult attention deficit disorders and severe dyslexia.

"I couldn't feel the joy, the excitement, or the wait – just the heart from the bed in the morning," he wrote. "I haven't really thought of suicide, but I didn't want to live in the state of mind I was."

He is good, where he is now: "I am pleased that I went through a depressing depression, because now I have the skills to fight it.

"If I could leave you with one thought, that would be:" It's okay not to be OK. "

James Middleton says Kate, Harry and William work with Head Together inspired him to talk.

He also threw his support behind his head, the charity of spiritual health, supported by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, saying he was inspired to speak with his example.

On New Year's Eve, Middleton proudly wrote that one of his beloved black spaniels Ella was certified as a pet home therapy.

"Linking to animals can help people develop better self-esteem and confidence, stabilize their emotions, and improve their communication, self-regulation, and socialization skills," he wrote.

"I am a huge believer and Ella has done a lot for me and we hope to share love."
