Well, dogs and cats are sincere and don't lie, which is better than some people ! The only way to get a good diagnosis is to see a good psychiatrist or psychologist for a full face-to-face assessment, and a discussion of his / her opinion.
From what little I can see from what you describe, this doesn't particularly sound like schizophrenia, paranoids or otherwise, or major depression, or a major anxiety disorder. It sounds more like a group of personality problems and difficulties in relationships, which are usually better dealt with by a psychologist in proper counselling, than by medications.
So it might be useful for you to see a good local psychologist for a thorough assessment and a discussion of your treatment options.
Some of us are very fond of spending time with other people, some of us are loners and just don't particularly enjoy that, and prefer our own company.
A psychologist, in counselling, could help you to clarify the specific difficulties you have been experiencing, and help you to learn to communnicate more effectively and enjoyably with other people.
