Interview: We barely know you here. Perhaps neither does your GP. So, meet w/ others until you feel understood by one and be both open about yourself and assertive about your concerns. If you feel that your GP was using the term schizophrenic as a slur, you might make a calm report to the clinic director if there is one. Or, if this is under national health care, to your state representative. Best wishes.

Schizophrenia is a diagnosis not a slur.
