Revel, Im sorry your going through a tought time now. I dont suffer from bipolar or cyclothymia, but I am a therapist and I know how difficult it can be. I wonder whether you've tried therapy or counselling. I've been going for my own therapy for 3 years now and I have found pregnancy brings up loads of new issues. Self-harm is often a way of expressing unspoken feelings, and perhaps therapy can be an avenue where you can express and explore your feelings. Its great your resisting the urges to self harm, and its ok to have these thoughts as long as you dont act on them. Pregnancy is a time when anxiety reaches sky high, so your not alone. I'm certainly experiencing an emotional rollar coaster...one minute i can cry and im so depressed and the next minute im elated. Just know where here to support you!
