Am I Having Schizophrenia?
Hello I’m a 24-year-old teenager. 2 years ago I was working in a minimareket, which I felt when the customer entered the minimarket and looked at me as if he already recognized me, I guess I was famous everywhere, and when people spit as if he was insulting me I thought there were people who conspired to bring down or harm me. Does that include schizophrenia. Thank you in advance
