My complaint to my doctor came from direction from a mental health nurse at university.
I am still annoyed.
I met my wife to be and everything was okay.
I was fine.
Years later my moods started to swing again but only mild.
It was more like the repeat of depression that I had years ago.
I am fine and sometimes very amusing, charming and feel great.
My confidence goes through the roof.
On the other hand it almost diappears and sometimes I cannot go to work or uni as I am too consiencious and feel hopeless, sad and dislike myself.
It reached a point when I could not predict what I would be like from day to day.
Sometimes I a ok for about 2- 3 weeks then I am up and down again.
The mental health nurse though it was a mood disorder.
I agreed.
I saw a doc who asked my loads of irrelevant questions and told me I may have but not definately cyclothymia. Weeks past and then I was told by the same doc that it was mild depression and low self esteem. Weeks later she said I was fine.
I completely disagreed as it made me feel like a hypochondriac.
My moods have effected my marriage career and education.
My only complaint is the lows. When I am up I am very productive and extremly confident.
I am still awaiting another appointment that she fails to organise.
I am in limbo awaiting to see someone.
