Emails: Emails can be pretty scary at times, and hard to keep up with. For instance, just imagine all the email they get at healthtap. You might not see my reply since it will arrive in your email box -- but i suggest consulting a psychologist if your fear is limiting your work or life in any way. Best wishes.
