Sz yes or no?

1991 - mental illness set in

diagnosed as sz many years later when i agreed to see a pdoc

the only positives i had - used to be suspicious of my family members and would get violent sometimes.

no positives now, only negatives i think so

but i dont think i have sz

what do u think?

Suspicions only are not enough for sz.
I don’t know. I’m not an expert.

but i showed to a couple of doctors and they both diagnosed as sz

so r they wrong?

It’s doesn’t sound like sz.
At least not a typical case of patient with voices
or persecutory delusions or grandeur etc.
Doctors know better than me

My fourth doctor said i only had 50 percent of the schizophrenia i dont know if that even makes sense he also said i have symptoms of autism.

Don’t care about the title.
As long as you’re sane and healthy,
you can leave sz label behind.
Prove that you’re not ill
