I admit it…I have issues with email. So much so that I think I may have OCD. I’m not trying to make fun of anyone that really has that disorder but I sure feel like I’m obsessed with unread email. I can’t stand it in fact. When a new mail arrives in my inbox I seem to stop what I”m doing and read it. This is not helpful for someone that gets hundreds of emails a day. Yes most are from monitors and alerts that technically I don’t need to read right away but I can’t stand having those little emails be bolded like they are in Outlook. I have rules set up to move them into different folders…perhaps I should have rules to mark them as read. It gets distracting too…like when I’m writing I see an email pops in and jump over to it and read it. Ohhh and something that just drives me nuts is when I see someone else”s Inbox and it looks like this – Inbox (313). What are you people thinking…how can you have that many unread messages??? I know you just aren’t as compulsive as me and I”m just extremely jealous.
Tonight I go to my first therapy session – Must Read Email Anonymous…crap I guess its not so anonymous now! :,,)
