The guy who diagnosed me put me in the hospital after one meeting with me and now i've been taking medicine for 10 years.

I started hearing voices in 2015 and i call them voices because they're auditory my thoughts are not auditory but i call them thoughts sometimes because no one else can hear them. I've never had visual hallucinations.
they're so distracting and become annoying when I'm doing assignments but comforting when im alone and have nothing to do.

I don't talk to people about what the thoughts say. half the time i dont even remember

Welcome to the forum and thank you for sharing. Why do you think you are misdiagnosed?

I don't think im not mentally ill i just think im not schizophrenic

everything i believe is based in reality.
everything i see is based in reality
and i just started hearing hallucinations recently

i think i have emotional problems...though...i don't register emotions correctly like i don't understand when someone's lying or sarcastic.

i don't know how to pull up or put down emotions when i need to.

i only feel emotions in extreme conditions and for the most part i feel apathy most of the time or annoyance.

i don't know how to respond verbally to situations even though i don't feel afraid. its awkward what i feel. I feel fine but something holds me back from responding like something stole my words or mind
