What is the criteria for diagnosing a schizophrenia person

I have no idea how they diagnose me as schizophrenia.

From google:

According to the DSM-5, a diagnosis of schizophrenia is made if a person has two or more core symptoms, one of which must be hallucinations , delusions , or disorganized speech for at least one month. The other core symptoms are gross disorganization and diminished emotional expression.

DSM 5. Tho im ruddy sure they made me suffer for 6 months, being off my rocker to make sure it wasnt soley the drinking tho.

It took me crying my heart out in front of the shrink - psychotic and hearing voices before i was taken seriously.

Soon as i got that DX. Bam. They were all over me - and got all the support i ever needed lol.
