Hope this goes in this forum. A few weeks ago I find information on cyclothymic disorder and began to think I might have it. About a week ago, I started writing down changes in my moods. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the worst mood possible and 10 being the best, I have ranged from a 2 to a 7 within the last seven days. I'm wondering.. would 7 really count as a "high" mood? I'm struggling with myself wondering whether or not I should even mention to this to my psychiatrist on Friday. I know something is wrong with me and that I have a mood disorder of some kind, but that's about it. I always score within the "Bipolar spectrum disorder" section of online tests.. not very helpful. A mood of 7 is usually my best, maybe an 8. Do you think this could be cyclothymia? I know I should ask a medical professional for advice, just wondering what you guys think. The symptoms of hypomania don't really sound like me.
