I was diagnosed as having paranoid schizophrenia. I know this may sound anosognostic and like I have poor insight in my disease, but i have doubts about my diagnosis.That’s why i want to know if someone has a similar kind of mental illness/schizophrenia.
The reason why I have doubts are:
I never “heard” voices, I just had unpleasant thoughts, that I couldn’t control.
I had “delusions”, like being poisoned by my father, but I was aware that this is a little bit odd.
I was very anxious and had feelings that my family might be harmed by criminals.
At the time I was diagnosed I suspected that I had schizophrenia, but did not know of any alternative diagnosis that might explain this, so now after having learned that OCD can manifest itself without compulsions I thought this might explain my illness. On the other hand I am afraid that this whole diagnosis doubt is a symptom of schizophrenia and I might be hebephrenic.But who knows.
Please share your thoughts on my story!
