~ Good to have a legitimate diagnosis, cyclothymia ~

Posted by @amberpep, Oct 19, 2017

Good morning to everyone. This was a few days when I make my monthly trip to my Psychologist and then in the afternoon I see my Psychiatrist who Rx’s the medications. Well, this passed week was horrible, anxiety through the roof – I won’t detail, I’m sure a lot of you know exactly what I’m talking about. Well, when at my Psychologists office for my appt., I asked him a question about this “cyclothymia” , questioning it. I’ve done a lot of reliable reading of it and it’s sort of a cover up, or easier to swallow, word for Bipolar 2. You know, this was a relief, and ties what is going on with me and has been for what seems like forever. As crazy as this sounds, it’s a huge relief to me. So, my Psychiatrist started me on Lamictal – a mood stabilizer. When I take that I also have to take Propanalol for what they call “essential tremors.”
I feel so relieved to have a legitimate diagnosis, being treated property, that it’s well worth going up every 2 weeks until I get stabilized. Needless to say, I am very grateful.

Abby @amberpep – What a relief for you. I pray that the meds will do just what they’re supposed to do. Bipolar by any name is a tough one to live with. I’m glad you have a good team to care for you.
