“Nomophobia” The Newest Disease…And we ALL have it!

I was in church recently getting my usual Sunday spiritual healing on, when the Pastor mentioned something during his sermon that caught my attention. He said and i quote “people today suffer from a disease that we can’t win a fight against and that disease is called Nomophobia”.

The Whole church was stunned as well as confused for 2.5 seconds until he ( the pastor) explained what Nomophobia is

Nomophobia- The Fear of being with out of Mobile Contact

Thats right! we are all suffering from the fear of not having a phone in our life

phone Some people will admit that yes this is true while some people will simply chalk it up to something that i’m certainly making up just to draw traffic to my post. if your one of those people whom don’t believe that this word is real “Google”it and you will see for your self that yes the word “Nomophobia” is a real word.

Ask your self this question reader, have you ever left your house for where ever you were going rather it was to; school, work, church, shopping etc.. and you managed to get half way to your destination and then it suddenly hit you

Its the year 2014 and owning a cellphone is just as important as owning a State I.D card, with out it your nothing! and no body! It is also this same form of technology that rather people realize it or not is destroying  the lines of communication as well as  basic living. Have you reader ever found your self going to the gym and after leaving a work bench you proceed to another work bench only to come across this scene?

How about this situation reader, going out to a bar or a lounge for a what you hope a expect to be a good night out of drinking, dancing and mingling only to realize through out the night that something is really wrong here

-my-face-when-i-read-the-first-question-of-a-test_20120614014509 exactly mine and your reaction. Cellphones have even managed to destroy what was once basic writing language, which has no become known as text message language

txt  Text-Message-Ashford-University So why are we suffering from this disease called “nomophobia”? well its simple as this reader, with the creation of smart phones, life became easier (and we all know how we like things easier) instead of sitting in front of a computer checking emails, reading facebooks statues, searching for the hottest places to eat, shop or party. We can do it from our cellphones.

Thats my Post! time for me to do my dance out of here

  1. So totally true. Never thought bout it like that. May be society should see how long they can go without their phone and using social media then maybe our communication and mangling with other would improve a whole lot. We once did this before all these electronic devices were available.
