Default Misdiagnosed!

Anyone here feel like they've been misdiagnosed with schizophrenia? I feel like my doctors have made a mistake. i don't think i'm psychotic at all.

A lot of times I thought I'm misdiagnosed because I am able to behave and feel normally, never hallucinate, hearing voices or have delusions that defy the law of nature.
My only gripe that has to do with schizophrenia is suspicions, paranoia, anxiety and uncontrolled anger.
All can be traced back to numerous bad past experiences that changed my thinking habits and the way I perceive things.

Thatís the kicker with mental illness. Itís the only illness whoís primary symptoms are convincing you you donít have anything wrong going on.

I wonder tbh. Id like to figure it out once and for all but I fell like to do thag would be dangerous. But I really do wonder if I really am that sick. I function a lot better than people with schizophrenic spectrum disorders are supposed to so I just wonder if it might just be something else

I'm not homeless and ranting at people on the streets but i'm also living at home and not working and collecting SSI... Not because i want to but because i keep going into hospitals all the time to even be able to work. I really don't think i'm sick tho.

I'm pretty sure I'm misdiagnosed right now. For the longest time I was diagnosed bipolar 1 and they just changed it during/after my last hospitalization
