Am I Schizophrenic??? Please help?

I've suffered from depression and anxiety since my teens. Then when I was 20 I hallucinated something and heard something. It then went away, but I was hospitalized when I was 30 for severe depression, didn't hallucinate then but was have disturbing thoughts....I knew they weren't real tho. Now ten years later I'm having those disturbing, intrusive thoughts and I can't get rid of them....very scary. I'm anxious and depressed b/c of them. I was hospitalized about 6 months ago b/c I was suicidal. Not sure what is happening to me, but I don't know if I've been mis-diagnosed. I don't have any thoughts of someone telling me to do anything and I know my thoughts are fake, but make me feel horrible. I feel very confused and detached from things and people. If anyone can help me understand, not sure what I really am now. I feel completely lost. I'm on anti-depressants now and was on them for 10 years and then went off them and this all started up after about 6 months.

Your thoughts are probably related to depression or anxiety/OCD. Schizophrenics don't know their thoughts aren't real, that's why they're delusional - you seem pretty aware of what's going on and to understand yourself pretty well; highly doubt you're schizophrenic. Why did you go off the ADs, can you go back on them if they helped?

I went of the AD's b/c of financial reasons (big mistake) - lost insurance b/c of a job. Then the stress starting building up and I think that is what took me down. I'm back on the same ones now, but it's been 4 weeks and I still don't feel that much better. I thought they would take effect by now. Money is tight, so it's hard to see a psychiatrist, b/c I think it will be a fortune. My regular doctor just prescribed the anti-depressants for now, but not sure if I should be on an anti-psychotic drug too. Thanks for your help!!
