Is it true that not seeing illusions is a sign of mental health and developmental disorders?

I asked this question, because when I do a Google search about illusions and Schizophrenia, the results show that Schizophrenics don't get fooled by illusion, but I am not sure if that is true with all people on the Schizophrenia Spectrum.

I do get fooled illusions, but I don't see illusions in a way that a normal person sees. In that sense I have mild pathology of Schizophrenia according to the Google search, even though I am not sure if I have a diagnosis of Schizophrenia, but I know that I am being treated for Bipolar Disorder.

I have Learning Disorder, ASD and I have history of being deranged with delusions and hallucinations for one month when I was fifteen years old.

I still have distorted view of reality, but I am aware of my actions and developed coping strategies, because I am on medications for ADHD and Bipolar Disorder.
