Hello. I would appreciate anyone's opinion on this.
I've always had social anxiety and depression for as long as I can remeber, when I was a lot younger it was worse. I used to suffer from selective mutism then as well.

But my symptoms seem to be all over the place. I fit most of the SAD discriptions, and I've been diagnosed with that. But I also seem to fit some (not all!) effects of bipolar disorder and OCD. Oh, and insomnia. Is this normal as they have some similarities with social anxiety combined with depression or should I look into these things more?

Insomnia is the one that seems more certain, though. I rarely get more than an hour of sleep every night and sometimes no sleep at all, but I think that is partially due to SAD making me overthink and re-analyze everything that happened the previous day and that my mind won't shut up. Could my anxiety have caused insomnia?

Just wondering. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help out.
