When I was in High School I was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder, I have taken quite a few of the meds prescribed and they only made my symptoms worse. I now think I was mis diagnosed and in fact may be bi-polar. Tell me what you think.

Symptoms:
Bouts of Depression
Feeling of hoplessness
anxiety about every little thing (worry about everything)
Shut myself off from family and friends (in my own little world)
Snap at everyone
Bouts of energy
Can't sit still
Want to be the center of attention
agitation
can't seem to shut my mind off
get very creative (draw, write, paint)
I can never concentrate and have had times when I have done or said things I don't remember saying or doing.
I am sure I am leaving something out but that's all I can think of right now.
