since 1994 that I have been diagnosed as having a neurosis but my illness got so worse in 2002 that I had auditive hallucinations (two voices talking to each other and voices commenting what I was thinking and doing), mind reading, thought broadcasting, strong delusions, .... These hallucinations and delusions kept on for 8 months without treatment.
My psychiatrist keeps on telling me that I still have a neurosis and not schizophrenia. He is sure about it.
There is another psychiatrist that thinks that I am schizoaffective.
Someone told me the following thing:
"occasional patients with schizophrenia may be misdiagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Obsessions and compulsions are indeed frequently present in schizophrenia; however, a person with true obsessive-compulsive disorder will not have the thought disorder, delusions, hallucinations, or other symptoms that are also present in schizophrenia."
do you think that I have schizophrenia according to what I have said and what my psychiatrists think of my illness ?
Is it possible that someone with ocd develops psychotic symptoms for 8 months without that being schizophrenia ?
