sorry to hear of the ongoings. yeah I feel the same way. like i never asked to be a skitso either but sadly sh*t happens. as time went on and the depression lifted and psychotic symptoms improved I started to feel better again and I hope the same for you also. It's only recently too that my depression along w/ the insecurity and inferior feelings have begun to lift and its been a few years of feeling this way too.
yeah some people like in your docs office if they don't have the full understanding and compassion don't know how to react, understand and help those like us who have our emotions overwhelm us. guess we just gotta put up w/ them or try and make a difference by educating them. but educate w/ caution cuz letting people know your situation can change their viewpoint on you and possibly a number of other things as well.
but take care and hang in there. wishing the best for you,
