Hi, I have cyclothymia. i have read that this is classed as a mild bipolar, i have been told that as it is cyclothymia and not a bipolar 1 or 2 I would possibly be able to control this without medication. I've tried antidepressants for the downs but they make me 'switch' quite quickly. Has anyone tackled cyclothymia without medication and succeeded? I'm waiting for my CBT to start and I have got myself some books on mindfulness and a book on sleep to go through, I've also seen online a workbook like the ones for anxiety but aimed at cyclothymia. Am I aiming to high here to get through it without meds :-/ I've been offered meds, and Quetiapine helps me get to sleep if I'm having problems but I'm trying to avoid it :-/ anybody got any thoughts on all this xxxx
