Hi! I'll be glad to be of help with this issue.
I can imagine how frustrating this situation must be for you. You are clearly doing well now and that's wonderful. You had some type of problem during that period. That you're doing well now, though, is crucial.
And this is actually the key to my answer to you that you need to consider. You are focusing on how to reverse the explanation of what occurred during that period (the diagnosis). But this is going to be a 2 step process. The first step is to focus on the fact that you are doing well now.
And that means working with your doctors to see if you indeed do not need the medications any longer. This will involve discussions between your psychologist and your psychiatrist. If possible, you should see if a conference can be held with everyone present to discuss this. How to discontinue medications will need to be treated very carefully, so that you have the best chance of tolerating the change from medications to no medications easily and effectively and are monitored well.
You see, once the current situation has been established as being not actively schizophrenic then you can begin to address the event that happened during that period. It is possible that you had a psychotic episode that was isolated and caused by some anomalous event specific to that period. This is indeed possible and it is what you suspect.
So, once you've established that the current situation is indeed non-schizophrenic you will be in a much better position to address the understanding of what happened in that period in the past.
Okay, I wish you the very best!
