According to reports the medical community has identified a new phobia about people who have an irrational fear of losing or being separated from their cellphones. I told my oldest granddaughter about this and she replied, “I love my phone, it’s my friend.” I think she may have nomophobia. I may have just a smidgen of it myself, I do feel a little uncomfortable when I discover I’ve left home and left my phone behind. Kind of like driving around naked, it just doesn’t seem the right thing to do. Hopefully they’ll find a cure.
Also, a friend of mine emailed me that there is a condition in which men become so use to wearing their phone on their belt in vibrator mode they experience “phantom vibrations” when not wearing their phone.
