      Default Cyclothymia support group

      Dear all,

      would anyone be interested in establishing a cyclothymia sufferers support network in London?

      I know sufferers are all involved in thier personal battles with mood disorders, wrestling with medication, CBT, families and partners. I think there is a notable absence of support for this condition which is poorly understood especially given that sufferers are capable of normal functioning even without medication in some cases. But, we live our private livees surging from one mood to the next. CBT itself has a limited impact on mood changes, except in helping us to understand the things that may drive us from one mood state to another.

      i have searched the web for adequate resources and support groups but have found none specific to this condition. I am currently contacting a few local chairirites and groups in London to look at the possibility of establishing a meet-up for cyclothymics. Please feel free to contact me with any ideas you might have.

      Please sign up to the cyclothymia and mood disorders group (group12) and open any discussion and post ideas you might have.

      best wishes

      Jen

      Hi Jen
      I have recently been diagnosed with Cyclothymia and came across your post.
      I live in Bristol but would love to know how you have got on creating a support group in London etc.
      I find it so hard and lonely when people look at me and don't understand why somedays I function like a 'normal' human being then the next minute I don't.
      I know that you will at least understand what i am saying.
      Anyhow it would be great to hear from you.
      I will now have ago at getting on the Group 12 thingy.
      Bye for now

      Sarah

      Hi djpullen, welcome to the group. i've not seen much traffic around here for a while but happy to continue discussions. we have not had much luck with establishing a support group - i think there are possibly not enough people aware of diagnosis or searching on this forum specifically to bring together a group.

      for others - to join the group, go to communities on the home page - click 'groups' and you should see cyclothymia and mood disorders listed there.
      Thank,

      jenna
