Recently i was a little depressed. 6(ish) weeks of sad and blah and mopey and miserable. My reading choices both reflected this and exacerbated it. During all this I had skin cancer removed from my forehead. As soon as I saw the scar a solution became clear. HP doesn’t cure depression – I got better based on chemicals in my head balancing out and things I did for myself. I read this during the first week that I truly felt like myself again – and it was magnificent. I cried at least 4 times. I smiled constantly. It was like heaven. Prolly the best time I’ve ever had reading a book. I firmly believe the HP books are magical. On to book 2.
