Clinical Psychology
In brief: Cyclothymia
Cyclothymia can be thought of as a low grade version of bipolar disorder.
That is to say, cyclothymics do experience similar mood swings, but not to the intensity of those experienced by those suffering from bipolar disorder. A psychiatric evaluation is in order with appropriate mood stabilizing meds as needed and a referral to a reputable psychotherapist who specializes in mood disorders.
