James Middleton reveals that he & # 39; feels himself again & # 39; after an attack by & # 39; crippling & # 39; depression
James Middleton has opened up about his & # 39; crippling & # 39; depression and tries the business & # 39; independently of its royal connections & # 39; to establish.
In an interview with Tatler, the brother of the Duchess of Cambridge revealed that he can be guarded when it comes to his family members, but that he is not against attention for the right reasons.
He said: & # 39; I lead a separate life for them. If there is interest in me, great. If there is interest in me because of them, it is different. & # 39;
James, 32, who has a relationship with French financial expert Alizee Thevenet, 29, also spoke about the assessment of his various companies.

In addition to a now defunct cake business, James runs a marshmallow company, Boomf, which suffered a loss of £ 2.19 million in 2016.
He told Tatler that the judgment of his companies put him under pressure and that he wanted to make them successful on his own.
He said: & # 39; Suddenly, and very openly, I was judged whether I was a success or a failure. That puts you under pressure.
& # 39; Because I do this in my head, regardless of my family and events that have happened. & # 39;
However, this has not reversed his aspirations and James said he plans to spend & # 39; for the rest of my life & # 39; come up with ideas, and added: & # 39; Some of them will work, some will not, but that's me, that's what I do. & # 39;
James also explained how he began to understand himself better after a doctor handed him a book on Attention Deficit Disorder, a neurological disorder that causes a series of behavioral problems such as teaching problems, attention to, and work tracking and social interaction.

He remembered how the doctor asked him to mark all relevant parts and finally ended up with & # 39; the whole damn thing & # 39 ;.
James said: & # 39; It was probably the first book I read cover because it was like reading my own life story. & # 39;
Dog lover James opened up in the interview with the magazine about his fight with depression, following his January article in the Daily Mail.
He said: & # 39; [The depression was] paralyzing. It is what you keep in bed while fear makes you guilty because you are there.

& # 39; I thought, "What should I be depressed about?" I was so lucky with my upbringing, I had all the things I wanted.
& # 39; It's not that I wanted more, but there was something that wasn't always there … And the more I ignored it, the more it took over. & # 39;
In his piece for the Mail, James explained how & # 39; all the color and emotion in my world had leaked out and everything was gray and monotonous & # 39; was when he was depressed.
He said: & I know that I am richly blessed and live a privileged life. But it didn't make me immune to depression.

& # 39; It is difficult to describe the condition. It is not just sadness. It is a disease, a mental illness. & # 39;
The businessman also spoke about his connection to Glen Affric Lodge at Loch Ness, which is owned by his father-in-law David Matthews, sister-in-law Pippa.
James explained that he does not work there as a guide for the hotel, but confirmed that he was a hostess at the Scottish hotel.

Although he is fighting his mental health, James said he is now & # 39; happy & # 39; and feels positive about life.
He said: & # 39; I am happy. I feel like James Middleton again. I feel like I was when I was 13, excited about life. I feel myself again and I can't ask for more. & # 39;
