How can I make my depression go away

Thought I’d share some of the kind words Chipur readers have passed along. I’ve tossed-in several awards to get things started. Perhaps you’ll feel more confident you’ve come to the right place…

I’m so glad you’re on Facebook, you help more than you know.  C.L.

Bill you were an amazing fellow student, a leader from the start. The way you think is so incredibly helpful I knew you would do well. To see you now isn’t a shock but a really nice win for all those that you have helped. Your passion for empathy, informed ideas and facts are refreshing.  Suzanne

I’ve been reading your articles for a few years and I just have to say what an incredible contribution you make to this world. You’ve kept my head above water for about three years now and I am really grateful. You restore my faith in humanity (very, very, very tall order). I read in one of your articles where Victor Frankl was mentioned, that he’s the person you would like to have with you if you were ever stuck on a desert island. Bet he’d enjoy your company too. Thanks for being you. Marcia

Hi there!! I just wanted to compliment you on your awesome site!! I have recently done some “switching” around with antidepressants and your site is by far the best that I’ve encountered in my endless search for information!! You do an EXCELLENT job of explaining things (such as medication mechanisms) in a way that average people can understand and make sense out of!! So again, THANK YOU!! I look forward to exploring your site more and more!! Very sincerely, Connie

Hi Bill, I’m Janey from Australia. I have suffered from major episodes of depression/anxiety for around 20 years. I simply want to say what a goldmine Chipur is! It is the most sensible, logical and do-able bunch of information on mental health I have come across. At present I am in an episode. The doc has increased my meds so I’m waiting for those to kick in, but in the meantime I am reading articles on your site for around half an hour per day, just to ‘drip feed’ regularly the information to my brain. So I really only wanted to say thanks. I hope you and your family are well.
Kind regards

Dear Bill, What a treasure it is to have found Bill White and his extremely informative website: Chipur. You must read his articles which are chock full of information that aren’t easily found elsewhere on the internet.

Hi Bill. I have been reading some of your articles and I think you have an amazing talent. Thank you for sharing that. All the best! Gaetane

I’m a therapist in Ohio and would like to use your article on catastrophizing with my clients, because it is the best one on the internet and they could really benefit from the way you break the subject down.
Thanks, Sandra

I’m very happy to have found this website. I’ve been reading a lot since I found it a couple of days ago. I’m grateful that you have put this together. Knowing your story makes it even better. So, thank you!  Jaime

Mr. White: I am the one who is thankful. I have wrestled with the black dog for many years without success. So your comments and perspective are like a lifeline.  Tim

Hi Bill – just wanted to say thanks for your blog – it’s really helping me make sense of a lot of things right now. I stumbled on your writing through a random internet search and am very glad I did. I particularly appreciated your article on intrusive thoughts – I know you will understand the relief I felt at finally knowing what I was experiencing and that I wasn’t alone with these experiences. So thanks again.  Linda

Hi Bill.  Thanks so much for all your words of encouragement. I love your website and all it offers. Thank you for what you are doing to help us get through this mess of panic attacks. You’ve been just a blessing to me….Martha

Wow. That’s all I can say to that. I’m one of those people that when I’m truly looking for something, I will know when I find it. And that…is it. I did the same thing with your website. I just want to read it over and over…Thank you, it’s a great thing you’re doing….the way you’re helping people is inspiring to me.  Nicole

Thank you so much for all of this information.  You have given me hope again.  I haven’t had any for a  long long time.  Cindy

That was an amazing article (on derealization and depersonalization) – I’ve never read anything which conveys the sheer terror and sense of alienation that a sufferer feels quite as well as your piece…When I read your article I got a true sense of how I felt. Thank you for that – I suddenly feel more normal!   Jon

Dear Bill, My name is Patricia.  I have gotten a lot of insight and direction from the great writings you do.  I will have a printer soon and will pass them on to others that do not have computers too!  I am so happy to find that people like you exist, and I am truly blessed by your dedication to helping others.  Thank you. Patricia

Thank you Bill…That article means so much to me, made me realise I have to keep going, everything happens for a reason, there is a purpose for all this…. There must be! I’m so grateful for your words Bill, they are priceless, don’t know what I’d do if there wasn’t anyone in the world like you. It makes me sad that there was no one around when you were suffering. Thank you again Bill, I will take your words to heart.  Amy

And thank you, one and all…
