I don't know if this will help anyone. But I have recently been diagnosed with Cyclothymia. I'd never hear of it before. 10 years ago, The only thing anyone ever heard of was bypolar disorder. I thought I was a rapid bypolar...but was told that I must have been reading myself wrong because there was no such thing. Two weeks ago I had enough (so had my husband) and decided to be reevaluated for depression. THat's when this cyclothymia thing came up. I can't tell you how much better I felt that there was not olny a name for my emotions, but that if there is a name, then there is a treatment plan.
The thing that was strange to me, is that instead of being put on a medecine that is used for a mood disorder, I have been put on one for seizers. IT's called Topamax (some I hear call it Dumbamax). Has anyone taken this med? Please let me know how it went. It's good to see that there are others out there. Thanks...Tammy
