Well I found out when my dad was in prison he was diagnosed with Parinoia Schitzophrenia. And my grandparents think I am a schitzo and I am kinda scared. Could I be a schitzo?

Just because your father has it, it does not mean you will have it. It's more likely but without seeing a psychiatrist, psychologist or neuropsychologist, you won't know.

It is genetic but that is not the only factor in having schizophrenia.

If you have none of the symptoms, I wouldn't be worried.
If you do, go see a doctor.

Yeah see a professinal in order to be sure. Other than that you will never know. Also, I doubt your grandfather's a professional so, don't take this the wrong way, his opinion means nothing unless he's actually done a significant amount research.
