I'm going to be seeing a different psychiatrist from now on and read on my transfer papers today that my diagnosis is "schizophrenia, paranoid type". I've known for quite a while that that is my diagnosis but, and I know this sounds stupid, seeing it written down has knocked me for six. Is this a common reaction? Just like, things seem more serious and I also feel like there may be a lot of stigma if my friends or anyone finds out about this? Every time I read about someone with a mental illness murdering someone it's always people with paranoid schizophrenia and it makes me feel kind of scared of myself in that I have the same diagnosis but also angry that I feel that way.
Am I being really stupid? does anyone relate?

Don't worry, I have a friend with paranoid schizophrenia and she has no friendship issues - she isn't her illness and neither are you
