Sometimes I think if they think psychosis or think you have voices, they just slap a label of shcizophrenia on you sometimes. Maybe they should consider other diagnosises on the schizophrenia spectrum or other similar disorders. Like, I think I may be schizotypal and not really schizophrenic these days. And, i definetly think my depression hasn’t been treated adaquatly. Maybe they aren’t asking the right questions and digging deep enough sometimes.
When I first entered treatment they didn’t think enough about diagnosis but the eventual sza was well considered.
You could always ask if there are other possibilities and get themthinking. I know my doctor said she thought for a while about me because it wasnt clear at first.
