Antipsychotic medication

Hello,
I am seeing a psychologist. I'm about to be diagnosed with schizophrenia. I am not currently in a psychotic phase. But I do have
trouble with making decisions, concentration, disorganized thoughts, memory, and initiating and completing tasks. My doctor wants me
to take Zyprexa. I am really afraid of all antipsychotic medication. I'm
wondering if I'm bad off enough to have to go on it. Will it really improve
my quality of life, or make it worse? I'm on Paxil now for depression,
it doesn't seem to help with the other symptoms. Advice?

Paxil did nothing for me.

I believe Zyprexa caused me to gain 57 pounds and caused me type 2 diabetes.
