Cyclothymic Disorder & Cyclothymia

http://psychcentral.com/disorders/cyclothymic-disorder-cyclothymia/

People with cyclothymic disorder have, for at least 2 years (1 year in children and adolescents), the presence of numerous periods with hypomanic symptoms that do not meet criteria for a hypomanic episode and numerous periods with depressive symptoms that do not meet criteria for a Major Depressive Episode. Cyclothymic disorder usually begins in adolescence or early adult life and is sometimes considered to reflect a temperamental predisposition to other bipolar-and-related disorders.
