ArmyIT tells us more.
It's not like it's something I just decided was a symtom. It was my psychiatrists opinion/word that it was. They now want me to do further testing. its just disheartening to know that I could lose my job over this.

Don't worry, tests like that bring a black and white view to your mental state. I constantly fall into the categories for Aspergers and Bipolarism, and was treated for ADHD until it fucked with my heart and then put me on medication for depression. Tests mean nothing.
That's absolute crap. Indecisiveness is NOT a symptom of schizophrenia. Schizophrenia means "split mind. " while indecisiveness may seem to fall under that, what "split mind" really means is the separation of the mind from the body, meaning the body does not act the way the mind does, leading in sudden actions and hallucinations. Look it up on Scishow on YouTube, they have a video 4 commonly misused psychological terms.
also: there is no way you'd have gotten both of thosecresults because MPS isn't even called that (it's called DID), and almost never does DID come together with schizophrenia. and I have a very hard time believing you'd make a joke about it if you did. and IF you were to have those disorders you would be a bad human for making others with them feel like they're joking.
Some people use humour to cope, 53. In fact, my girlfriend, who has schizophrenia, is a member of a mental health comedy group. All the members have some sort of mental disorder, and they do stand up comedy to raise awareness and funds for mental health. A bunch of their material is really just talking about various aspects of their disorder/how it affects their life and joking about it.
@53 - I dated a girl with both, humor is a great way to cope. Also, idiots like you think that saying "multiple personalities" makes a person less credible when the change of dissociative identity was fairly recent and not heavily portrayed in the media. Just because you call it the 'correct' name doesn't validate your argument or invalidate anybody else's.
As a mental health assistant I have to agree with 60 & 65. My patients are very open about their illnesses and often like to joke about it because it is one of the best coping mechanisms there is. OP if you really do have schizophrenia don't sweat it and try to get the help you need. There are many mental hospitals that offer programs for those who want but can't afford treatment. There is also many organizations and classes you can visit to learn more about the illness. As of right now though you are undiagnosed, you can't only go by the results from a test. My advice is go see a therapist and if he diagnoses you then take charge. I really hope it all goes well.
