LOL! A string and a rock, that's almost too good to be true. I wouldn't be surprised if that fear can be traced to Japanese folklore and superstition. But your comments about mental illness in general are true. Somethings with the psychiatric qualifier NOS as in "not otherwise specified" can be just idiosyncratic. Anorexia Nervosa can be fatal.

I wonder if many of the current psychiatric/psychological maladies are due to modern civilization. Not so long ago 100 - 200 years ago many of our ancestors were living a simple existence farming, hunting and/or fishing.

LOL! A string and a rock,

What was that line from the movie The Wanderers, "I know you know about Rock and Roll, but I bet you've never heard of Rock and C*ck."
