Gidget- The fact that you say that you're paranoid and very anxious while being bipolar makes me think that the anxiety may be a result of the manic-depression. Are you currently taking medications? If so, then you probably DO have a comorbid anxiety disorder, which isn't uncommon with bipolar disorder, but if you're not, the anxiety could be a symptom of mania or a mixed episode. Oh, and you're NOT crazy! Believe me, if you're crazy, then I sure as hell am! lol!
My diagnoses include: severe Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (pure obsessional type), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, severe panic attacks due to specific phobias and my anxiety disorders, cyclothymia, and a mild case of Asperger's.
Good luck and God bless!
