> Hey! i was wondering if any of u with cyclothymia have problems with focusing and attention span?? i went to see a Doc. and she diagnose me with depression, but my psy teach say its probably cyclothymia. i dont have much problems with the mood swings... infact i kinda enjoy it.... it gives me creative ideas. the thing thats affecting my life now is my attention span. i cant focus on anything for long, and the attention period decrease to almost zero during the blues. when im happy, i seem to be distracted by having too many things to do, and i cant complete anything.
> If the attention span is part of cyclothymia, then is there a way to increase may attention without stabalizing my mood too much?? im having an appointment with the Doc. next week and i would like to be able to discuss a few alternatives with her. Spanks alot guys.

hey pink spida, i'm new here too :-} i have the same problem. when i'm low my attention span is so bad that i doodle through most of my classes, but when i'm high it's so quick and so jumbled that i have a hard time focusing all the creative thoughts popping up in my head.
a mood stabilizer seems to be the only answer i've found so far, and a lot of people seem to think Lactamil (?) or something that sounds like that helps. sorry if it's not much help, just offering some empathy.
good luck :-}
