Delusions and paranoia go hand-in-hand. It’s concerning that you believe in things that seem to be untrue. As you noted, you checked for cameras and did not find any, but it didn’t ease your fears. It should have. Feeling that your house is bugged and that your friends are conspiring against you are symptoms associated with several types of mental illnesses.
You wrote that you have “done some evaluation for schizophrenia” but didn’t elaborate. If you are referring to self-diagnosis, I would advise against it. If you haven’t been evaluated by a mental health professional, that should be your next step.
It’s important that you consult a mental health professional. Your symptoms could worsen if left untreated. The good news is that they are treatable with both medication and therapy. Discuss your options with your parents and ask them to take you for help. Treatment will help you feel better. Please take care.
