I don't think having your identity wrapped up in a certain intellectual or even vocational pursuit is necessarily unhealthy. I tend to identify heavily with lawyers' interests and personalities. I turned down great employment to pursue law school on these reasons alone, just to be honest, even if doing so adds fuel to the fire.
Let us assume I was psychologically unhealthy. Why would this preclude going to law school? Absolute health is not a prerequisite to hardly any job, including being a lawyer. Tell me someone eating shitty food all day should not go to law school on that fact alone.
Right, so I'm just going to recommend therapy again, because that's literally all I can do. What you're doing to yourself is going to catch up with you eventually, even if you actually luck into the career you want.
