Did you get told your diagnosis or was it implied for a long time before you were formally diagnosed?

Ok, but medical wise, what changed?
Too many of my hallucinations were in accurate. So I just admitted I am wrong. Many of my hallucinations are completely wrong. Once you have a certain amount of your hallucinations not come true you realize you're not right. Sadly is was simple as that. :/

i was admitted into a hospital due to severe delusions and paranoia and while i was in there for 2 months, i was told nothing. A few weeks after i was released, i went to a GP appointment and was given a form type of thing saying what was done while i was in the hospital and that is where i seen that i had 2 new diagnosis.
Kind of annoying that no one actually took the time to tell me bout it. At the time i had no idea what schizophrenia even was. Had to research it myself afterwards to actually know

Months after my first hospitalisation I googled my symptoms, wondering what on earth had just happened, and learned of the word psychosis. 10 years and 2 more hospitalisations later, no-one has come out and ever said this is your diagnosis. It was just on paperwork I had access to. Since then I have spoke to my GP once about 12 months ago and she actually said the s word. But that's the only time. It's weird and I don't think it's helpful.

I mean: did the medics change your meds after the diagnosis? Got a different treatment?

No it was the same for me, same types of meds. But my diagnosis changed from bipolar to schizoaffective so my new meds are primarily for psychosis rather than using antipsychotics as a mood stabiliser.
