    I feel like a schizophrenic without the nultiple personalities.

    It's like, I can never seem to be able to commit to any life plan or anything.

    Like, one moment I want to be a politician and the next moment I want to be a pop star.

    You sound like a normal teenager, to be honest....
    Btw, schizophrenia and 'multiple personality disorder' are two different things.

    Multiple personality disorder, nowadays known as dissociation identity disorder is when you develop multiple personalities, usually as a result of severe trauma (most often in your childhood). In most cases the person isn't even aware that they have alters.
    Schizophrenia is a psychotic kind of illness, a person with schizophrenia usually suffers from things like hallucinations, delusions, etc.

    How old are you? What is it about what you've said that makes you feel like you have schizophrenia specifically?

    I'm 18 and when I said schizophrenia it turns out it wasn't what I thought it was, which Ciel has cleared up for me now.

    I meant, though, it's like I think one thing one moment and then I think a completely different thing, sometimes the opposite thing, the next moment.
