Diagnosed with all 3 personality cluster A disorders

Postby Sweet Cherry Bomb » Wed Jun 24, 2020 6:06 pm

Looking for information on this and cannot find any information on my question at least I haven't.
I had trouble figuring out where to post this because my question has more to do with schizophrenia than personality disorder, but maybe this is better suited in one of the Cluster A disorder sub-forums.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK5 ... e/ch3.t22/
Positive symptoms, such as hallucinations and delusions, are symptoms where abnormal thoughts, behaviors or feelings are present when they are normally absent. Negative symptoms, such as flat affect or low motivation, are when normal thoughts, behaviors or feelings are not present when they should be.

I am trying to understand distinction between someone with all Cluster A disorders Vs Schizophrenia.

(1) ideas of reference (excluding delusions of reference)
(2) odd beliefs or magical thinking that influences behavior and is inconsistent with subcultural norms (e.g., superstitiousness, belief in clairvoyance, telepathy, or "sixth sense"; in children and adolescents, bizarre fantasies or preoccupations)
(3) unusual perceptual experiences, including bodily illusions
(4) odd thinking and speech (e.g., vague, circumstantial, metaphorical, overelaborate, or stereotyped)
(5) suspiciousness or paranoid ideation
(6) inappropriate or constricted affect
(7) behavior or appearance that is odd, eccentric, or peculiar
(8) lack of close friends or confidants other than first-degree relatives
(9) excessive social anxiety that does not diminish with familiarity and tends to be associated with paranoid fears rather than negative judgments about self

Paranoid personality
(1) suspects, without sufficient basis, that others are exploiting, harming, or deceiving him or her
(2) is preoccupied with unjustified doubts about the loyalty or trustworthiness of friends or associates
(3) is reluctant to confide in others because of unwarranted fear that the information will be used maliciously against him or her
(4) reads hidden demeaning or threatening meanings into benign remarks or events
(5) persistently bears grudges, i.e., is unforgiving of insults, injuries, or slights
(6) perceives attacks on his or her character or reputation that are not apparent to others and is quick to react angrily or to counterattack
(7) has recurrent suspicions, without justification, regarding fidelity of spouse or sexual partner

B. Does not occur exclusively during the course of Schizophrenia, a Mood Disorder With Psychotic Features, or another Psychotic Disorder and is not due to the direct physiological effects of a general medical condition.

I've come across a (1) person diagnosed with all of Cluster A disorders and to me they act like a person with schizophrenic diagnosis who has good treatment plan.

If a person is diagnosed with all three (3) cluster A disorders
Paranoid personality disorder
Schizoid personality disorder
Schizotypal personality disorder

Is the only reason why a person is not diagnosed with schizophrenia is because of "Positive Symptoms" does not last continually for a whole month where it disturbs the persons ability to function in life tasks and interactions? I suppose with Paranoid and Schizotypal personality disorder may only last for a few hours or for only a few days. And are not hard to reason with and convince that their perception is veering away from reality of a situation.

I hope I did not offend anyone, not my intent. This is a serious question with intent to understand.
