    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Hi! I'm new to the up/down/around the globe thing (my little name for it). I'm supposedly cyclothymic. Honestly, after I got the initial diagnosis I stopped going to therapy. I kinda always knew I had some form of mood disorder. Is there anyone else here how has cyclo? What's it like for you?

    I agree with Debbie, I do not know anything about "cyclothymic". Maybe someone else does.

    It's kinda like the middle ground of bipolar disorder. The highs and lows are not as high or low as in type I or II. You still have all the other symptoms but supposedly they aren't as extreme. It doesn't make it any easier of course.
