I would love your perspective. I am told I often confuse mania for anxiety. How do you tell the difference?

Here is an example:
This weekend I became very frustrated while cooking dinner. I had a stressful day and could not find what I needed in the cabinets. The result, I tore everything out of the cabinets and pantry, reorganized it all and then returned to the now burned meal I was preparing.

So what do you think-are instances like this fueled by anxiety or mild mania?

That sounds more like anxiety than hypomania. If you had hypomania, you probably would have been able to multitask.
