Whatever happened to the word “neurotic,” a term popular in the 1960s and 1970s, describing people prone to anxiety and obsession? Woody Allen mined comedy gold as the hapless neurotic, the Jewish New Yorker constantly obsessing about love, art, death, the existence of God, the fate of the universe, and the meaning of life.

As depicted in popular culture, the neurotic sought relief in psychoanalysis, a form of therapy that has faded in favor of medication as the treatment for most mental illnesses.

But who today claims to be neurotic? I hardly hear that word anymore. Has it gone out of fashion?
