Clearly, the proper answer is that while self-diagnosis can help to decide whether it's a ood idea to seek professional advice and help, it's not reliable opn it's own. So the best thing would be for you to see a shrink, even at a state / provincial hospital or clinic, for a proper asessment and discussion of treatment options - and then such treatment as you needed could be provided at low cost, related to your finances.
Second line of thoughts. While the evidence is pretty clear about the value of medication in treating Bipolar Disorder, its less clear IF one is considering the milder symptoms of cyclothymia. It's not clear from your remarks, though ( and thus the need for an expert assessment ) whether you might not be perhaps experiencing a manic phase of a Bipolar disorder, which could be more readily helped. Or there might be a cyclothymia made more unpleasant by the presence of another disorder, such as depression, maing the cyclothymia more noticeable, and itself responding well to proper treatment.
