Could I have a mental disorder like Schizophrenia?

I am going to be assessed at this Healthy Minds place a month after Xmas & wanted to know if I could have it. I have little signs like oversleeping in the daytime & barely going out the house. I couldn’t write until I was 7 or 8, until I noticed that my teacher was making me write with my right hand when I’m left handed. I struggle with things like telling the time on clocks and bus timestables.

My mom has something similar to Schizophrenia so that’s why I’m asking.
I’ve never attended secondary school either & was home schooled.

That does not really sound like schizophrenia.

What does your mom have? Schizoaffective disorder?

The diagnosis for your description could be a great many different things, or it could be nothing. Perhaps you have dyslexia, which is a learning disability resultant from a reduced capacity to recognize or properly organize symbols. Dyslexia is most often characterized by difficulty reading and writing.
