FASHIONABLE DISEASES IN DIGITAL AGE

Mental diseases are more dreadful than their physical counterparts.

India Today weekly news magazine in its 12th  Jan. 2015 edition brought out one interesting article on such diseases which are the result of mindless ambitions of man in a fear-driven society.

See the list here :

CEO's Disease :

Hypomania : Those who suffer from this disease are called hypomanics.  They are exuberant, supremely confident, sleep little,
have grandiose ideas and super human energy. In the process of accomplishing their tasks, they may lose judgement, insight and control.

Innovation Anxiety :

They worry constantly.  Will their technology become obsolete, will others  come up something better, will someone steal their idea ?   Unable to concentrate, they lose control over themselves.  Symptoms : shorten of breast, chest pressure, fatigue.

Fomo :  Fear of missing out. Unable to tear themselves away from their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Modern life has offered so many gadgets for our comfort, but peace has to be earned individually amidst all  pulls and pressures of daily life !
