Do You Know That Fear Of Being Without Your Mobile Phone Is A Mental Illness? by massmediang: 11:21pm On Sep 11

I bet you did not know that that was a mental illness caused by the anxiety you often express when you discover that you have left your house without your phone or you forgot it somewhere. Sometime you feel like a part of your major body organ has been caught off. Other times you feel like an incomplete human being.

Well, you are actually killing yourself with a mental ailment called nomophobia. British research came up with this concept and have done studies to explain its causes, symptoms and cure. Nomophobia is the fear of being without your phone or losing your signal. A person who suffers from nomophobia is referred to as a nomophobe. Are you a nomophobe? Do you know what it does to your health? Please read this!

ok what happens in the case of ( u are expecting a contract call worth alotta money and you forget ur phone) while you already far away already and u start displaying in the bus, its a mental disease abi?? it's just normal because some people can't survive without their phone as it's their office. its not always about social media addiction.
