Feelings of being watched sounds like a symptom of schizophrenia; I would tell your doctor about it. And why do you think strangers know that you're schizophrenic?

Among strangers, like when out shopping or something, nobody knows your condition, and you don't know theirs either. There's no reason to suspect you receive more attention than anybody else. (though I understand it can feel that way sometimes)

I always laugh alot to myself in front of anyone which then I think people knows there is something wrong with me it's just because I'm listening to my voices it's so embarrassing but hey ho you can't help it, does anyone else laugh to themselves or can't control it where ever you may be ?

they don't know what we are hearing or seeing. for example, a voice can tell someone with schizophrenia "they're here to harm you, so attack them first" and some people with more severe schiz may listen and harm that person with a weapon. it just comes down to them not understanding what we are potentially seeing or hearing

Even the experts who research and study schizophrenia and other things are still trying to understand it better. So, you can't really expect ordinary people to know much about it.
