so help me out with the OCD vs OCD pd? what would be the difference between the two? i guess i would think of someone not able to function outside the home with OCD, but like my dad with ocd PD, that he can function but is obsessively checking things 8/9 times. is that kinda it??

and what about schizotypal pd? why is that not a class of schizophrenia is it because it's not as 'debilitating'?? i was wondering cuz i've been poked with that label before and my DBT therapist actually said that he viewed these PD more of axis 1 than 2 because he did feel that medication helped most of them and should therefore be in axis 1.
but i'm wondering cuz even though i don't necessarily hallucinate in the general sense when i'm off medication (and it's coming back quickly) is i quite often see shadows all the time, sometimes of people but mostly bugs and large shapes from the corners of my eyes or dart across the room. since they aren't really 'hallucinations' what they heck are they? and why is it when i was taking the zyprexa it stopped all this. i also sometimes hear weird things, like TV's going or babble in another room when i know there isn't any.

so anyway, how is this type of stuff a personality disorder? do they think that if it's personality i can choose to not see/hear this stuff?
is it just anxiety that does this?
