I'm 20 years old, i havent actually been diagnosed with Cyclothymia, actually, the best that I've done is seen a counselor who simply passed off my mood swings as something related to my friends graduating from school and me feeling the loss of them a little too personally. However, I really feel like I may have Cyclothymia, or something else that's effecting me, because the i suppose, depressive times arent really triggered by anything that i can pin down, and For the past year I've been having major mood swings -- the downs are always much more obvious than the ups, and I Only recently noticed that they are in a pattern.

For a few days every few weeks my life will simply seem too much to cope with. Its about at least three days every three weeks I would guess when i'm feeling "down". - I will be tired and not able to sleep, and then once I do get to sleep its the hardest thing in the world to wake up again. - I always feel better if I can just sleep for three days straight and not deal with anything. I am really into the arts as a lot of you said you were, I paint and draw, and spit out stories, and I never actually concidered my creative impulses to be a part of my cycle, but the more I think of it and the more I read about you all, the more things seem to make sense. The reason I was reading these posts is because I've been worried about my mood swings, because when I feel down, I feel DOWN, and thats just not right, I mean, something is really wrong.

So I was wondering, sort of, How can I deal with this and not have to go to a psychiatrist or counselor, how can I deal with it by not having to take medication? Is it possible, I mean, does talking about it really help? Because I find it awfully hard to talk about it while I'm down, and harder still to talk about it when I'm feeling good because I just dont want to go there. Is that fair of me to ask? I just feel like the swings are taking me lower and lower which is why it's come to my notice that maybe there is something actually wrong with my brain and not just me being socially incapable or something.
