How to Prevent Depression

“My anxiety and mood disorders have caused me so much misery over the decades. You know, I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy!”

Hmmm. Well if that’s how you really feel, why not reach-out? Um, just in case your worst enemy is, in fact, in the throes of a mood or anxiety disorder.

From its inception, chipur was intended to be a sharing, learning, and healing blog for those enduring depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder.

I’ll underscore sharing.

To be expected, I do the bulk of the sharing around here – from a personal and clinical perspective. But it’s so important that others pitch-in and help.

Yes, “We Want You!”

I’d love for you to share your story here on chipur. How ’bout a guest post?

You don’t have to be a professional writer (geez, look what I’ve been getting away with for two years). The only requirements are having a story to tell and the heart to share it.

And if you’d like to remain anonymous – or use a pen name (how mysterious is that) – it’s fine by me.

Heck, we’ll work together on the piece, if you’d like – editing, etc.

Absolutely, I’d really like to feature your story on chipur. If you’re interested, just drop me a line and tell me what’s on your mind. It’s that easy.

I’m thinking you know what it’s like to hopelessly hurt. Why not reach-out to someone enduring the same? You’d be amazed at what your sharing and caring can do for someone!

Thank You…


  • I’m only new round this joint and don’t want to be too presumptuous – I’m not sure if other people think like me, but my thoughts are…. I don’t share too much about myself coz I don’t want to come off as a big, fat whinger! (that could be a Australian cultural thing).
    Plus – it really takes a long time to deconstruct and understand what is happening to us – when you are in the middle of “it all”, it’s really difficult to bring into focus very many coherent thoughts.
    What seems true and a revelation one day (in my head), seems like absolute balderdash, the next!

    • Understood, freefalling. But don’t sweat coming off as a “whinger.” We’re all here to share and learn – and it’s my belief there’s a lot of empathy floating around.
