Exclamation Not too sure - April 1st 2010, 03:36 AM

Hi everyone,

I've never done this before so I'm not too sure what to do/say. Lately I've been feeling different. I did some research and I think I may have Cyclothymia (sp?). I learned about it in class and was startled about the similarities with the diagnosis criteria and myself. I've had my ups and downs lately but tonight I've noticed I'm starting to have some negative thoughts. I wasn't sure where to turn so I decided to check for a forum and see if anyone could offer some advice. It may be stress related but I just feel...well feel is an interesting word because I don't really feel anything right now. I know for certain that something is not right because I can feel a tightness in my chest. In my heart I almost feel as though I lost someone close to me, even though I haven't.

I'm not sure if that gives any insight into my problem but if anyone could offer some advice asap that would be amazing. I have a history of self-injury and am hoping to have some answers as to what I am going through before it gets to that point again.

thanks a bunch,

Hey there.

One thing you should be wary of is self-diagnosing. If you're concerned about your mental health, or even physical health, the best thing to do is see a professional. Your GP would be a good place to start.

I hope you start feeling better soon.
