Diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Taking treatment. Suggestions?

I was diagnosed with bipolar and schizophrenia at the age of 27. I have been in therapy for over a year with the same therapist and we have discussed changing my diagnosis to borderline personality disorder and also bipolar because it fits me so much better than schizophrenia. I am very very sure of this as the personality disorder fits me to a "t".

Hi, the self diagnosis is also one of the features of the schizophrenia, so trust your doctor, and follow his advise. With out your prompt if he feels will change the prescription.
I advise you to follow some diversion procedures, like yoga, meditation, reading books of your interest, and hearing music. Thank you.
