Hi Gary,

After talking with a fellow-tapper, I came to the realization I have "email phobia." I get panicky when I see all my unread emails - especially yours. So I avoid them all and don't look at emails til I "have time". If I try to pick out the urgent ones, I would get anxious because I would see the mounting pile of unread Gary emails, and all the rest. I wanted to absorb all your priceless pearls of wisdom, "but not now"! I always download the stuff in chunks and then read it with a highlight pen. So I tapped about my email anxiety and everything else (anxiety level of 9) and it dropped to about a 2.5. As a result, I read through all my emails, including yours, printed out the ones I want to keep as reference, read that, and am moving ahead with my life.

I'm now a timely email responder. And I checked emails 5-6 times over the last week usually check once or twice, if that.)

GC RESPONSE: I wonder if something like this isn't happening with some students who actually develop a phobic response to books, tests, essays, and/or math. Some students excel in some subjects but fall flat in others. I know I never liked English or History in school. I did okay in them but I recall an emotional thud within my system every time I entered class or started some reading. Maybe it was just disinterest, I don't know. It was too long ago to tell. However, I suspect that certain subjects (or teachers) trigger some negative stuff in us which, in turn, affects our scholastic performance. It's all tappable.

My Best,

Michelle LaPrise
