Bipolar, ADHD, Borderline Personality Disorder, Aspergers

Hi Everyone,

I have always been different for as long as I can remember. From the age of 3 Anger. Snapping out. Living inside a shell. Embarrassed. Shy. No Self Esteem. No Confidence. Introverted. Depressed from the age of 15. Drinking and gambling from the age of 20 through to the age of 35 and then completely stopped due to family and children.

I was first diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I was on meds that made me a zombie and anxious. Saw another Psychiatrist and was then diagnosed with a Personality disorder and ADHD. On other meds which where OK but still not over 75%.

I feel critisized when ever someone talks about something I've done and defend it. Sometimes not very diplomatically. I talk to people and feel I am talking politely and nicely but others tell me I was quite rude. It is a little hard to look in people's eyes but I do it. It is hard to talk to people and it feels pointless to me and a waste of time.

Anyway with all that said, what do I do. Everytime I see someone the give me a different diagnosis. It is important for me to know what I actually have.

Aspergers would explain a lot but it's not 100% of the signs that I have.

Thanks a lot for any input
