In brief: Doctor Required.

Schizophrenia is a treatable psychiatric condition.
Treatment options include medications, various psychotherapies, and psychosocial interventions. These therapies require coordination by a psychiatrist. Just as you wouldn't try to run an automobile without the assistance of a mechanic, it is important to connect with a doctor familiar with this disorder and one whom you can trust.

In brief: First-go to a doctor

Schizophrenia responds to medication and it is the most powerful treatment we have for this debilitating illness.
There is no reason to delay seeing a psychiatrist. Generally speaking, the longer symptoms go untreated, the more difficult the illness is to treat. Your psychiatrist can talk to you more about self-initiatives to keep you healthy.
