I Think I Suffer From Cyclothymia

A milder case of bipolar. http://www.cyclothymiacollective.com, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyclothymia 24 People

    Lots Faster Than Bi-polar

    I go up and down a lot faster than the typical definition of bi-polar... My doctor has not diagnosed this, I dont think there is a questionaire that fits....Red Wine has helped me with less side effects than meds.
