Well as most people here probably know getting a diagnosis can be a long process however im getting a bit frustraited and was wondering if anyone could offer suggestions on what i might have that i might take to another doctor as suggestions.
My current doctor currently has me under 'depression' however she really feels that it might be something else which is why she wants other opinions. I feel a bit left in the dark as to what she could be refering to though.
Things that are sort of alarming areas are:

Highly artisitc and creative
very poor social skills (i have no friends and quite dependant on my parents)
Never had good social skills, always used to sit by myself at school lining up sticks in the ground
have always had trouble looking at peoples faces particulary their eyes
i chew the inside of my mouth a lot as well as spots that dont exsist on my face and skin around my nails
very low self esteem
cry very easily if i receive negative feedback
very critical of myself
start half way though sentences with no one knowing what the ***l im talking about
cant notice any difference in the level of my voice, quite most of the time but can sometimes say un-apropriate things quite loud
stare into space a lot
dont feel any longing for love or a relationship
suicidal thoughts
noted as being eccentric by others
cant make simple decisons
very little energy
lack of motivation and feel tired all the time
go to the toilet very minamally compared to average people

i only want a suggestion sort of quickly as my boss is being discriminative against me after i told her i was on anti-depressants so i want to move quickly to try and get some stability. im a hard worker and always put in %100, do hours of unpiad over time and have always been extremely honest. im obviously feeling quite depressed at the moment so ive tried not to accent on that much, more the areas that have been there for a few years or even my whole life.
Any respose at all would be a bit of a help, i just feel the need to look for answers to why i behave the way i do. im not generally impatient but i cant get it out of my mind
