Have you lost or misplaced your phone and found yourself in a panic stricken frenzy, you have what the experts are calling nomophobia.

Millions of people around the globe are dependent on their phones for much more than just talking, in fact I think we actually text way more than physically talking to someone.

Researchers in Hungary tested several young adults and found that when these people had their phones taken away from them, they became nervous, felt bad and some experienced symptoms relatable to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

I know I use my phone for a variety of things from sending text messages, social media posts, reminders and an alarm to wake me up.

I have made fifteen calls this week, and most were less than 5 minutes in length.

Our phones are much more than a communication vessel, they are a way of life in the world today, and for many their main means of attachment to the human race.

What have we created, is the smart phone a communication renaissance for mankind.

How long can you go without yours?
