I am, to use an awful neologism, a “Nomophobic.” That is, I have the fear of being without, or losing, my phone. And according to a recent study , which states that 9 out of 10 individuals suffer from Nomophobia, chances are that you and even the person sitting next to you is suffering from the same.Any doubts? Look at these symptoms to see if you too have pangs of #NoMoFo in your everyday life.

1. You often have nightmares like THIS.

2. Every stranger is a prospective phone thief.

Even when a cutie comes and sits next to you, the first thing you do is grab your phone.

3. You get a mini heart attack when a phone drops, even if it isn’t yours.

Because you wouldn’t wish that upon your worst enemy!

4. When you are out and your battery runs low, you feel almost certain that something terrible will happen.

If I have been somewhat close in judging your replies, then you must spare a few minutes to learn more about your condition.
