Does a low battery icon leave you quivering in fear? You, my friend, are likely suffering from nomophobia.Nomophobia, as the name suggests, is a fear of not being able to stay connected by mobile all the time. Most people cannot imagine a life without a cell phone, and constantly keep checking their pockets at regular intervals or tracking notifications on their smart phones. Similarly, those suffering from this consider the mobile phone an essential tool to be in contact with people, making them feel secure, and closer to their near ones. Typically, these individuals get anxious, and their stress levels go up when they realize that their phone battery is running out, or they need to be in a place where there is no network coverage. If you have similar fears like this, you might be suffering from Nomophobia.
