I agree with terry8 that you should make your school aware of your illness. It's very important that you keep them in the loop with what you are going through, as well as the Dean or other academic people in your program. You may be able to get some exemptions - like no need to have full attendance at classes - which can go a long way in helping you to get through.
Trying to do university with this illness is extremly hard, especially if you have social anxiety or other interpersonal problems. Could you take this year off till you're on meds that you respond to?
