A few years ago, I wrote my own 10 Commandments for bipolar disorder. I did this after reading someone else’s negative and distorted stigmatic list of commandments that degraded people living with bipolar disorder!

It wasn’t funny, so I figured I would add a little reality and balance to that list and wrote my own, posting it on one of my blogs back in 2007. I thought it was funny and a little educational. There have been many types of 10 Commandments lists for all sorts of things besides bipolar disorder. Since then, I’ve seen that list show up on a dozen or more websites and blogs.

Today I’m writing my own “10 Commandments of depression.” This time I am adding an acrostic spelling of my name inside the list… Just to see a few years down the road who is actually using my original work or who has changed it around a bit. It’s kind of a “human study” and a way to track where this Commandments list will go.

Feel free to copy and paste it to your website or blog! Then 3 months from now, I will do a search to see where these Commandments have landed.
