Fact is, I can’t NOT check things that can be checked, on a regular basis. If I’m in the middle of a conversation, whether it be by email, text, whatever, and I don’t get an answer to some question, well, I can’t stop checking.

Damn the stupid email subscriptions I’m subscribed to because I didn’t notice I clicked “yes”

I had to impose some really strict rules on myself to help get this exact thing in check. It was tough, but once I did it things were better. I still slip and when I do it takes quite a bit of reteaching myself but it’s worth it. There’s something to be said for being able to just focus on one thing at a time. But it’s tough in this world.
