I appreciate your point of view and am sure many other readers do too..
I studied psycho-social theory in my mid 20s in my final year. I had been lucky to study from a broad range of subjects, so I can laugh and tell myself it is not an obssession. As I walked to uni, I chatted to my father over the fence buried at the cemetery. He had been diagnosed and had an appauling life. I often looked at life through the lens of pathology, as I spent a lot of time visiting psych hospitals for my family, but later I made a decision to go to psychologists rather than psychiatrists. It did make a difference to round out my understanding of human development and cultural diversity.
