Paxil + BP = Character?

I have been on Paxil for 6 months now. I went from being introverted, quiet and " keep to myself" type of person to a person that has character and flair. I have about 5% of anxiety about what other people think of me. Add that with me being bipolar and I am something else. It makes me wonder if my SA was hiding my bipolar. I don't think I am doing anything " wrong" per say but I am sure people would now describe me as a person with flair. Before I was quiet and boring. An example of my new personality is I put a small stuffed pink gorilla on my desk at work with a sticky note on him that said " Hi, My name is Bamboozie" He has a graduate hat on and a diploma under his arm. I would of never done something like that before Paxil. So I wonder is this really me???

I'm on Paxil too. I find that it dulls my emotions. In the past I would easily get nervous, than get depressed and freak out in social situations. This is why I couldn't hold a job for more than a few weeks. My life is much better on it, but it's far from a miracle drug. I'm still pretty much a loner with real bad social skills. At least I can make a living now and won't end up a hobo lol , but I still doubt I'll ever get married or have a steady GF.
