Something very obvious just hit me (I swear to God, trying to help other people on this bulletin board helps me more!). How could anyone have a decent self-esteem when they are cyclothymic - how you feel about life and about yourself depends simply on where you are in your cyclothymic cycle. Isn't self-esteem about feeling good about your accomplishments, etc?

ps Absolutely no side affects with lithium.

Sean,
I like the way you express yourself. I easily see you writing music, lyrics and poetry. I earn my living in the arts also, and sometimes I am concerned about sanity drying me up. I have a strong feeling many successful people in the Arts are cyclothymic because usually we are functional in the 'real world', and our 'highs' are our inspirations and work, and our 'lows' help edit our 'highs'.
