What you posted sounds like textbook Bi-Polar to me, it certainly describes my non-medicated self and I can't imagine how any qualified psychiatrist could miss it. Have you seen a psych doctor of any kind? PCP's, Family Physicians are Not qualified to diagnose or treat mental illness. I had to look up cyclothymia as I have never heard of it. Cyclothymia also called cyclothymic disorder, is a mood disorder. Cyclothymia causes emotional ups and downs, but they're not as extreme as in bipolar disorder type I or II. I hope thats right. The main treatments for cyclothymia are medications and psychotherapy.
Cyclothymia requires lifelong treatment, even during periods when you feel better, usually guided by a mental health provider skilled in treating the condition.
