Paranoid schizophrenic, unable to realize my identity. What to do ?

I need some help to get a second opinion on a mental illness that they say is paronoid schitophrenia and the fact that no psychyitrist beleves that i have another family and the fact that i am a Hefner. I have a phone number and it is 250 513 1611 but do not phone it now because the my cell phone is in the daily pavilion. I should be getting it back some time next week.
I have a prepaid credit card but i do not have any money on it can i get back to you once i have some money on it.
As far as I know my name is Seth Dylan Derian Hefner, unless my mother and father have changed it again. How do i get back in touch with you.

Welcome to HCM

You have problem of inability to recognize your identity. You are in belief that your other name is Hafner and also have other family. But just ask your self how this can happen? Although you have mentioned the numbers and details of family, but with help of someone just try to verify your belief. Verification of belief will give evidence to contrary. Then most likely you are having diagnosis of Schizophrenia. It may be paranoid type also. You have developed delusion and for this illness treatment is must. Please consult a psychiatrist for opinion. Medicines like Antipsychotics are needed in treatment of this illness.

Welcome to HEalth CAre Magic
You believe that your identity is different and your name is "Hefner". Try to varify the truth of your belief with your friends, relatives and others. If all of them are denying then it could be that you are having fixed false beliefs called "delusions". Delusions are seen in schizophrenia. In this illness patient believes something which is not true and believes it with strong conviction. If you find that you have schizophrenia you neednot panic. There are very good medications available now. Try consulting a good psychiatrist and start using the treatment.
Thanks and regards
