Was thinking of ways to help you feel confident you’ve come to the right place. I decided sharing some of the nice things people have said about Chipur might do the trick. Let’s see if I’m right…


These mean a lot…

Hey Bill!  I just wanted to say hello really and to thank you properly for everything. I cannot express how much you helped me through those difficult times. I couldn’t have done it without you guiding me through.  Best wishes, Charlotte

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 is 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 Viktor 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 Emily 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

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

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

Hi Bill!  Thanks for your time yesterday, I feel sooo much better emotionally today. More grounded for sure. I appreciate you and your insights very much. Your name is now a household word! And of course, Tom is all like ‘What do you think Uncle Bill would say if he heard you talking to me like that?’ We’ve given him so much new material to work with.  Madeline

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

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

Thank you, all… Bill
