I suffer from multiple learning disabilities

Hi, I am 18 years old and I suffer with my cognitive function. I cannot read, cannot write, cannot concentrate, cannot memorize. School is extremely difficult for me. Recently my doctor diagnosed me with schizophrenia. I have a simple question do you think there is something wrong with the diagnosis or if there is something else wrong with me besides schizophrenia?

Is it just printed materials you have trouble reading and writing?   What are you using to help you on the computer?  What happens when you're trying to read? Do the letteres get jumbled or blurry? Is it you can't make out the words.

I don't know if what you are dealing with is schizophrenia related or not. We can only offer our opinions but it can't be taken for medical fact.

I have trouble reading in general. Nothing happens when I am trying to read, I just cannot process the information. No....the letters do not get jumbled or blurry.
