Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
From what you have mentioned social anxiety could be a reason. My advice to you would be not to stop the medicines you have been prescribed for your bipolar disorder and that would help you with your depression/anxiety as well. Also try to make an appointment with a psychiatrist for a talk therapies which can help you with your social anxiety.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
