Hi Ben, and welcome.

I don’t know much about cyclothymia, but it sounds hard. Lucky for you that you can get away with less study than your classmates!

You asked about a support group: perhaps your therapist has access to resources about support groups. Also, I wonder if your university has a student welfare office that might be persuaded to organise a group for students with mental health issues (maybe one already exists). But I hope you’ll feel comfortable here at Babble as well.

I imagine it must be difficult to cope with mental health issues in your situation, when perhaps many of your friends don’t really understand and perhaps aren’t always sensitive. Many people in their 20s haven’t encountered mental illness before and might not know how to support a friend in your situation yet. And it might be particularly difficult in medical school, since many people have to study very hard. But I hope that you will find a few sympathetic people who can offer you friendship and understanding.
