Do you have to be diagnosed by a doctor to say you actually have it or can I diagnosis myself since I know myself best?

I'm not sure if I should be diagnosed by a doctor who might think otherwise on the opinion. She might say I'm overreacting or overexaggerating my symptoms. Even though I know myself best, would this change how I work? maybe it's proper treatment and able to cope with it more. Having an official diagnosis that I could show others to back off just in case if something goes wrong? It's not because the doctors cannot figure it out. I'm trying.
Am I wrong?
