I only did general psych. a long time ago and haven’t been much interested in it since. But if I remember correctly, their was no specific “paranoid schizophrenia” diagnosis, although that phrase has long been popular with nattering journalists. It was either “paranoia” or “schizophrenia.” Paranoids are seldom diagnosed due to their scheming nature and fear of being analyzed. Schizophrenics are often diagnosed.

Thanks for the diagnosis. Maybe they didn’t cover it in the 101 class you slept through.
