This can be followed by experiencing 'depression', starting from a normal mood, turning into deep sadness, irritability, irritability, impatience, and quick change of mind.

It may even be that people with this disorder don't seem depressed at all. Eventually, however, people with cyclothymia will develop severe bipolar 1 or 2.
