...I think I do.
It's when you have a fear of not having a mobile-phone. I experience this periodically and get down-right anxious and stressed-out if I've left my cell phone and/or I can't access it...I know, it's ridiculous! It's become a digital addiction and oddly enough, instills comfort when I have it.
Oh no, what if they put this in the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders"?!? Will it be code #911?
What did I do before cell phones? I didn't die, I was content, I managed, and I actually could experience a bit of downtime and catch a respite when I was away from the job setting...ahhhhh, sometimes I long for the good 'ole days. But then I get a slap on the cheek to wake up to the hair-on-fire, always connected, web-access, constant notification, text-mania world.
Yep, I have a serious dependence on the thing, and seriously am thankful for it's robust functionality. I am going to try to rule it though, and not the other way around.
