Hi, I'm Conor and I'm a nomophobe...

 - "Cuz, I think I've got severe nomophobia!!"

 - "Ha, told you, freak"

Thus started the recent conversation between myself my cousin, Patrick. He had been insisting to me for years that nomophobia was a 'thing' and it existed, which usually got a derisory retort from me ("Phoney, modern crap" to be precise).

So what is nomophobia? Well, at it's simplest, it's the fear surrounding the loss or impairment of your mobile phone. Or, to give it's official definition...
