I just had some harmless delusions, but I do have a schizophrenia diagnosis. I am bipolar, and possibly schizo-affective, but not schizophrenic, unless you want to combine a schizophrenia diagnosis with a bipolar type I.

When I'm manic, I sometimes get funny ideas some of which can be regarded as delusions (but see below). These delusions last for considerable time after the mania is over, hence I am possibly schizo-affective, but the bipolarity is the primary issue, and the psychosis (at least its inception) is secondary to that.

Historically, more than 10 years ago, I had a full-blown psychosis resembling paranoid schizophrenia. In addition to the paranoia, I had auditory hallucinations. These hallucinations resolved quickly, in the matter of days or weeks, and they have never recurred.

Or, do I have delusions? Citing DSM-V: "Delusions are fixed beliefs that are not amenable to change in light of conflicting evidence.". I don't have beliefs that I cling to in the face of evidence to the contrary. I do have beliefs and hypotheses that have little or no basis in conventional science, but they also cannot be disproven. If I say I have delusions, I am conceding that some of these may qualify as delusions.

Have I *had* delusions? Yes.
