Well this has been a difficult path to follow.
I am a recently diagnosed rapid cycling bipolar sufferer, who thought he was just an unstable so and so for years, but after being forced to the doctors by my recently reunited girlfriend. Im a bit worried and nervous about the future but I have been put on Sodium Valproate for the time being (only 200mg bd) so im hoping that my erratic ups and mainly downs settle down to a more stable pattern!
Anyway looking forward to reading around the forum a bit...
Yours nervously(!)
Paul

Hello and welcome Paul :),

I'm new here myself, and I can also closely associate with your condition - I recently had my diagnosis changed from unipolar depression to cyclothymia (which, from what I can glean, is just a flash name for rapid cycling bipolar), and I'm also going to be starting on Valproate in the next few days.

All the best with everything :)
