Most of what you wrote applies to me also. 1/2 of my Dx is "Social Anxiety Disorder" (the other 1/2 is Bipolar II).

My feeling is that AVPD is no more than the extreme form of "generalized" Social Phobia. But, I do find that some make more of a "qualitative" distinction between the 2 (vs. my "quantitative" one). Everyone is different.

Klonopin (2mg./day) helps me with a part of my SP, but there is another part that is not being addressed, the "motivating part".

Unfortunately, w. comorbid BPII, antidepressants make me hypomanic/"mixed states". Nardil was by far the best of these though. Nardil+Klonopin+Lithium worked for about 3 months, until the hypomanic broke through (ditto Prozac+Klonopin+Tegretol, not quite as good as the Nardil combo. though).

SP/AVPD has severely constricted my life. Wish there was more serious research being done on treatments, instead of just the all-too-common throwing of SSRI's at it.

Best to all.
