Amateurs should not try to self-diagnose, but I find it interesting to see what went into a professional diagnosis, and perhaps why an alternative diagnosis was not made.

Update: I've been looking at the reviews on the US version of Amazon. Any fears I had about appearing to be over-reacting to the print quality and poor binding have disappeared. Lots of US reviewers have said the same thing, even suggesting that the American Psychiatric Association has deliberately bound the book poorly to increase replacement purchases. Kind of adds to my concerns about professionalism. Several reviewers took their copies to places which ring-bind books very cheaply. I don't know whether this is possible in the UK. Now I know why my book came bubble-wrapped, which struck me as odd at the time.
