Am I really schizophrenic if I don't have delusions?

It started many years ago at a "family help center" that diagnosed me with psychosis which I never expected.

My diagnosis from a psychiatrist is paranoid schizophrenia. Before that diagnosis I was approved for ssi disability listed as anxiety disorder. The main symptom of schizophrenia is delusions which I don't feel I really have.

I don't believe in strange or supernatural things like the illuminati or ghosts. Mostly science proves what things that can be tested are true through consistent results. The only "delusions" I think I really have are the following:

*People are mean-spirited. They want to see you humiliated. But it's more of a destructive attitude
*People from the past have come into my mind to bother me. But I know this is fear based spam
*People are always laughing at the way I present myself. But it's a strong feeling and is not likely
*Any kind of marketing or sales pitch is a lying piece of bs. But even that is just another attitude

Other than that I've had indescribable dreams that are more feeling that narrative. But I don't think I've had delusions. I like to think I have a grip on reality.

sounds more like paranoid schizophrenia or schizotypal or something

I would think the listed "delusions" aren't particularly delusional, if anything are mostly just anxious. The bit about marketing especially is outright true as far as I'm concerned - marketing wants you to buy their product, end of the line, and nothing else matters along the way. Not EVERYONE is mean-spirited, but I tend to feel most people are as well. Take all this with a grain of salt because I am also diagnosed with schizophrenia.

i also suffer from delusions to, i mean really bad horrible delusions, its terrible and regid, im so scared and fascinated with my with experience my schizophrenic brain, im learning new things about about it every single day. I kind of enjoy it really. its a another world i never entered before its im enter my different view of my own mind, i take bit and pieces of my mind i seeing where it falls and where it fails. my brain i learn loves to play a game with me, i don't like it, i hate it. i used methods to battle it, its really scary experience to tell you truth, very scary. like im entering a dark world. but i have to do it from the source of all my problems, it gets more interesting by the day really and scary at the same time.

I'm sorry that your diagnosis doesn't feel like it fits, @ToothPullOuch. Have you questioned the diagnosis with your Dr?

Thanks, all, for your responses!

Topic clarification: I'm mostly trying to reconcile my guilt for not being able to work.
A search resulted in this article on disorganized hebephrenic schizophrenia:

An individual with schizophrenia who is described as hebephrenic does not have hallucinations or delusions but instead has disorganized behavior and speech.

Paranoid schizophrenia describes my symptoms, as well as disorganized speech in front of people.
