False perceptions (hallucinations) are symptoms of schizophrenia. But people diagnosed with schizophrenia have no doubt that whatever they see, hear or feel is real. According to your description, it seems to me that you are aware that the perceptions you are experiencing are not real. Your question alone is a proof that you don’t have schizophrenia, however, you can consult a mental health professional for advice and to seek help.
