Take your prescribed meds and see if it helps. If they don't help, go back and see the Doctor again. The problem with psych meds is they're hit or miss. Sometimes it takes a little tinkering with amount and type. It took about 1/2 a year for my Doctor to find the right combo for me. Best Wishes.
Maybe, just maybe, you could have Delusional Psychosis, but that can only be determined by a psychiatrist. Paranoid Schizophrenia usually is accompanied with bizarre delusions and hallucinations (hearing or seeing things that aren't real). Thinking people are watching your house is not bizarre because it is possible. A bizarre delusion would be more like you think aliens from another planet are controlling your mind. The bottom line is I'm not a Doctor. If you want to read up on it, you can look at the Merck Manual (it's also known, amoung clinicians, as the DSM).
Researching is what helped me find out what was wrong with me before my doctors did.
Do plenty of research on psychiatric conditions and medications.
I had to learn to trust my psychiatrists and therapists/social workers.
I had to and still have to take my medication religiously--It took about 11 years before they finally got the right combination of medication for me. It was a long time of suffering! but having the right medication is worth it.
Support groups are really helpful, too. www.nami.org is great--It helped me through the worst of times.
Having good friends and family that I trust is wonderful, too.
