The scourge of Nomophobia

Are you reading this on your smart phone?

The LA Times reports:

Do you feel anxious if your cellphone isn’t nearby?

Does just the thought of losing your phone make your heart pound?

Do you keep an extra phone on hand, just in case your primary phone breaks?

Do you sometimes take it to bed with you?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then you may be a nomophobe, and you are not alone.

Nomophobia — the fear of being without your cellphone — is on the rise

I didn’t even know there was a name for that.
