I heartily endorse Dr. Paul Chodoff's proposal in his letter in the January
21 issue that a new diagnosis called "the human condition" be
added to DSM-V. To facilitate insurance reimbursement, however, I
propose the eponymous "Chodoff's syndrome." Knowing your
psychiatric ABCs, after Asperger's and Briquet's, who wouldn't be happy to be
diagnosed a Chodoff's?
