Infatuation with your own writing?

So I tend to become very infatuated with anything that I write, to the point where I read it over and over again because I am so in love with it. Does that happen to any of you? I know that my writing isn't all that great, I can't spell worth a damn, and my grammar is horrible, and I really need some work on my creative writing as well as well as my discriptive prose, but it doesn't matter, when I actually get myself to put something on paper (or in ones and zeros) I fall in love with it and can reread it like I do with some of my favorate authors works (you should see how many times I have reread PastWatch by Orson Scott Card, or maybe you shouldn't). Anyways, sometimes this infatuation affects my ability to accept criticism, even the contructive variety, of my work. So what I really want to know from this writerly group, is do any of you suffer from the same problem, and if so what do you do to get past it, because I really think I need to learn to do that?
