Hi Ben,

Welcome, I hope you find some of the support you're looking for here on babble. I can't imagine the stress of med school and cyclothymia, although it's good that you function so well.

I fully understand about needing to work out every day. I've told my p-doc that I'd be fine if I could walk/run/ride/swim 16 hours a day. I have ADD and a lot of anxiety and the only thing that really helps is exercise. When I don't exercise I can't think, my anxiety is high, and my memory is much worse.

As far as support groups, it seems there are some online support groups specifically for cyclothymia - I did a google with cyclothymia+support groups, but I guess if you entered your city and state if you do a search you might find an in person support group. As well as your therapist, you might check with the local mental health clinic.

Glad your mom is able to help, even though I can understand that what she can help you with would be limited. There are some things kids just can't share with their parents.
